Aubrey had to get a hair cut today, because we haven’t been able to get a brush through her hair for the last two weeks. It’s so curly they have to straighten it to cut it, and she LOVES it. She calls it “flat hair” and when I told her she was going to get her hair did today she said, “Oh Momma! Will they make it all flat like last time, when it puffed up just like a dandy-lion!?”
I said yes, even though I’m not sure I understood the dandelion reference. She was stoked.
As soon as we walked in the door and Emma saw Aubrey toss her now silky smooth hair she had a fit, “MOMMA! I want weally fat hay-uh wike Sissy! Not cully hay-uh wike dis!!” She grabbed a couple of fistfuls of hair.
So I flat ironed my 4-year-olds hair and wondered how all those crazies on Toddlers & Tiaras do it. I’m lucky if me and my kids have the attention span and incentive to actually wash and brush their hair on the same day… forget putting eyeliner on a preschooler.
