For months I have been putting off this dreadful dilemma, but it has resurfaced once again. It’s about Miriam’s beautiful long hair. I am seriously considering taking off about 6 inches. She is always getting sticky food in it or creating hard tangles in other ways, and although her patience for having me tend to her hair is out of this world, it hurts her and takes me about 20 minutes just to comb through with the detangling spray. Every time she bathes we use up about 1/4 bottle of conditioner so it won’t be so painful when we comb it.
Just now in the bath she thought she was helping “wash” her hair and ended up matting it in a birds nest on the top of her head… I have it soaking in conditioner now but I just don’t think I can do it anymore!!
I have tried putting her hair in ponytails, braids, elaborate updos in the morning to prevent all these problems, but naturally she “loses” all the fasteners at some point during the day. Any other ideas? Votes?
Søren got into my potato drawer yesterday and ate most of a raw potato. I let him do it because it was keeping him quiet while I got dinner on… but I didn’t expect him to eat so much! My kids are weird!
Julie and the kids were over yesterday. Here is a typical “cousin” scene. Jireh has just pulled Miriam’s hair and Lucie the Ham is headed straight for the camera. Naturally when we actually fetched the camera there was some idyllic scene we were attempting to capture, but those moments tend to disappear when proof for posterity is desired.
