Day: May 29, 2013

After baths, I always blow-dry Susannah’s hair. She almost always asks me to “make it poofy.” I have tried everything I can think, over the months, only to have every hairstyle rejected. Some with crying, even, and heartbroken wails of “that’s NOT poofy!” 

Tonight I had an epiphany when she made her request. I stopped the dryer. “Susannah, do you want your hair to look like Bella’s?” 

Susannah grinned. “YES! That’s it, poofy like Bella’s poofy hair!”

So I had to explain that Susannah’s hair is like mine, and I can make our hair can lay straight or stay curly, but I can’t make it “go like Bella’s.”  
((Bella is a younger toddler at PDO, maybe two years old. She wears her hair in beautiful, natural, Afro-puffs {do they still call them that?!}). 😉 How sweet and funny is that?
