One day, to teach her to ride a horse, He made her climb on the fastest one, Bareback, and sit there As he held its long face in his arms. With that picture of a Madonna on horseback He slapped the shank of the horse's rear leg. The horse did what a horse must, Racing full toward the bright horizon. When they reached the trees and went under, Her hair, which had trailed her, Equal in its magnificence to the tail of the horse, That hair rose up and flew into the branches As if it were a thousand arms, All of them trying to save her.
The horse ran off and left her, The baby still in her arms, The two of them hanging from her hair. The baby looked only at her And did not cry, so steady was her cradle. Her sisters came running to save them. But the hair would not let go. From its fear it held on and had to be cut, All of it, from her head. From that day on, my grandmother Wore her hair short like a scream, But it was long like a river in her sleep.

Up to now everything had been so relaxing and fun but this hurt. I suddenly realized I had just had my eyebrows waxed. I got a little scared now as things might be getting out of control.
The lady put a moisturizer on my face and massaged it in which relaxed me and then she started to apply makeup. When this was all done we went back over to the chairs we started at and they took the curlers out of my hair and brushed it out. I was could not wait to see what I looked like.
Finally she was satisfied and turned my chair so I could look in the mirror. I was in shock, I was both scared and thrilled at the same time. I did look totally beautiful and completely like a 16 year old girl but I also had a very feminine haircut and style with bangs and my light brown hair was now a blonde color and really curly.
My eyebrows were also well shaped with a high arch and there was nothing at all boyish about them, actually most girls in my class would love to have eyebrows like this. I looked at grandma and told her I was worried what mom and dad would think. She smiled and gave me a hug and said, my beautiful granddaughter you are a young lady now and they will see you for that, they will be so proud of you. I knew what she meant and had I been a girl that would have been true but I was their son and they had been going along with this while grandma was here this was a little more permanent.
It is funny the friends you can make online they are from all over the world, and although you never really meat them they are in some ways really good friends. Most of them other crossdressers, some real girls I had met and even a few older woman that in some ways were like online moms that I could talk to and it was amazing the support I got from all of them.
The girls all told me I needed to do what made me happy the older woman told me the same thing and that they would love their child no matter who he was or how he wanted to live his life, one even encouraged me to tell my mom and dad how I felt. Tonight when I got online I would have so much fun but right now I had to focus on the here and now and enjoy this time out. We walked into the mall and I had a whole new kind of self-confidence as I knew I looked as good as any other 16 year old girl at the mall, actually probably better.
We stopped at a little jewelry store and grandma bought me a ring, bracelet a necklace and some earrings. The earrings were little gold hoop earrings and they were for pierced ears. I looked at grandma and she smiled you are 16 you should have your ears pierced, I looked at the lady and figured why not as at this point pierced ears would be the least of my problems so I sat down and in a few minutes I had gold hoop earrings in my ears. From here we went to the food court and had a late lunch and then we hit the mall shopping.
We went to every store that sold anything that a girl might want. We even went to a bridal store and I tried on a wedding dress. I tried on so many beautiful dresses today it was like being in heaven and the funny thing is somewhere during the day I stopped thinking about being a boy dressed as a girl and started thinking of myself as a girl and enjoying it. It was the most wonderful day of my life.
Well by now it was after 5 and grandma called a cab to take us home. We were on the way home when mom called me on my cell phone. She said her and dad were worried when they got home and we were gone. I told her grandma had wanted to take me shopping today and I heard the pause in her voice, did she take you as a girl?
I said yes and I heard my mom tell me how sorry she was and she hopes I was okay. She asked what I meant and I just quietly said two words, beauty parlor. Mom let out a small gasp, sweetie I am so sorry for you, I will make this up to you somehow. I just said its okay I am fine and I knew I would soon be home and they would see me and what had happened.
The cab pulled up in front of the house and for the first time I was scared. I got out of the cab and grandma and I walked to the front door, I did my best to stay behind her. Grandma looked at her and said, see what a beautiful young lady your daughter has turned into. Mom gained he senses back and said yes she is beautiful.
She gave me a hug and whispered in my ear that everything would be alright. She then called dad by saying, honey come see how beautiful your daughter is grandma took her to the beauty salon today for a complete makeover and you will not believe how beautiful she is now.
Dad came around the corner and looked at me and I could see in his eyes he was confused, not upset but more of a wow he is a beautiful daughter. He paused for a moment and looked at me, then grandma and then me again. Then he walked over and said I guess my little girl has turned into a beautiful young lady and he gave me a kiss on my cheek.
We all went in and had a nice dinner and talked and I could see mom and dad looking at me from time to time trying not to stair, and as time went by we got back to a more natural sense in the house and it was almost like they overlooked what had happened to me so I felt more relaxed.
That night when I went to bed dad actually called me over to kiss him good night and mom and grandma took me up and helped me clean off my makeup and get ready for bed.
The next day my birthday I got up and mom, dad and grandma were all waiting for me downstairs. I opened my presents from mom and dad and they were the normal type presents. Mom and dad said we would have a nice dinner tonight at home as mom would prepare anything I wanted.
She then started to spread a paste over them and shape them. Mimi 20 September Reply Heyy, please help me. I know some of the lyrics but unsure who or what the title of the song is.
