We're one third of the way through the bat mitzvah experience with less than 12 hours to go! So far none of my relatives have even wrung my neck EVEN when they discovered their names on the program unexpectedly.
And I'm going to have a big old Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer nose in all the bat mitzvah pictures, because I haven't been able to breath for three days and I might leave one of my lungs up on the bima today but, y'know, I'm told I have two. Did I mention I have a cold? But aside from that...
Here's my bat mitzvah gal killing time before the service by playing beauty shop with my nephew's hair. She straightened it with one of those iron things she knows how to use and I don't, put him in bows and a bun, and used umpteen hair products.One thing I gotta say about my nephew: he's a good sport. And he has really nice hair. Especially after my gal gets her hands on it.
Did I mention that I have the perfect bat mitzvah party activity? In addition to airbrush tattoos, we're going to give mohawks. KIDDING!!!! But only because the other parents would hate me for life. And my daughter would have to change schools. And synagogues. Aside from that though, I think it would be totally fun.
