The little one had been so good enduring her first haircut. Her great aunt was wielding the scissors, three female relatives looked on, offering encouragement. Then Lexis momentarily looked alarmed as the hairdresser took her chin in her hands. And suddenly it wasn't so much about the haircut as having your chin in Leone's hands, something we are all so familiar with. No other hairdresser holds our chin quite the same as Leone does.
So Lexis had a new look for the twins' 21st on Saturday night.
The ladies in the kitchen - the mother, grandmother and godmother. The men are partner, friend, godfather and father.
The Nannas were invited to speak. Maternal and paternal grandmothers and dear family friend who the twins have called Nanna all their lives. We were doing OK until we got distracted and had a bit of a chat instead.
Someone thought they could be trusted with knives now they are 21. Lexis isn't so sure.
