Holi is Coming!

Holi is quickly approaching :) Monday is Holi, but today Aashini celebrated Holi at her school. We didn't know what to expect (and asking questions didn't really help), so we prepared for a super messy Holi at school. We oiled up her hair and it looked so gross! Light colored hair can get permanently colored pink, purple or green after a day of Holi, so we didn't want to chance it. Anyway, it ends up that they played with flowers at school instead of color and this is all the color they put on their faces (along with mine & Diya's as we arrived to pick her up) :) All the kids were dressed up in nice clothes for the school party and Aashini was all oiled up and dressed in bummy clothes - haha! We were THOSE parents! haha!
Have a Happy Holi!

better to be "those parents" than the the ones with "the-kid-with-the permanently-died-pink-hair-at-age-two!"

one lasts one day the other lasts a while! :) Happy Holi!

Sorry I had to laugh at this! But hey - how are you suppose to know if they won't answer your questions! I'm sure it didn't face "A" one bit!

So, I need some advice! Do we need to oil up our kids' hair? We're planning to go to celebrate with some friends. I didn't know about this! :)
