Tonight at bath time I threatened the girls with timeout, spinach for breakfast and every other thing I could think of to keep them from getting their hair wet. Aubrey’s hair is so curly and brushing it out can take days, and days, and days…seems like it anyway. So we only wash hair every other day (AHEM, or two.)
Me: Do NOT under any circumstances get your hair wet. Do you understand? (Last time I had this conversation with Aubrey only, because Emma has 1 hair to every 100 of Aubrey’s, and Emma took it upon herself to dump water all over Aubrey’s hair. Which I then got to brush out and dry at 9PM.)
Aubrey: We do Momma. We won’t get it wet we promise.
Me: Emma, do YOU understand? Do NOT get Sissy’s hair wet!
Emma: I won’t Momma. I won’t!
Me: Aubrey, let’s put your hair in a bun just to be sure, ok?
Emma: OH! OH! Me too, Momma! I want a buns!
I scraped, and tugged her hair into a bun and she squealed, “OH MOMMA! I lub it! I hab da biggest bun in da whole world!”
Hate to break it to you, Em, but I don’t think you have the world’s biggest anything!!
