Remember when the director then said that she wanted Staley and her twin to wear pigtails? And remember how Staley was so resistant to this because pigtails pull and hurt her head and she couldn't possibly stand to wear pigtails for the play? And remember how, for Staley's dress rehearsal, I put her hair in pigtails at least 5 different times to try to decrease the pulling and make them tolerable for Staley to wear? Remember how that, too, resulted in tears? Remember how I ended up frazzled and frustrated and making idle threats about Staley not being able to be in the play if she can't handle what the director asks her to do?
Then remember this morning for church how Staley asked me to put her hair in pigtails and asked if she could wear her new black shoes?
