Today I had a realization.
I realized that the girls hair takes up a good 25% of my day.
After brushing all of Zuri’s booty length mane (not a small, or easy task), and putting it up into a pony tail that she told me was “too TIGHT!” then taking it down, only to have “it’s bugging me! its in my eyes! I cant breathe!”, to then compromising and agreeing to pull it out of her face in a “not-too-tight Topsy tail” in the front, that it had been a solid 45 minutes.
So, I move onto Remi, whom you might think would be easier in the hair department-wrong!
She pointing to Zu’s hair wanting hers like that, and there’s no easy or nice way to let your little baby girl know that she’s barely got enough hair for an old man comb over…So, we do our go-to water fountain pony on top, then she sees a headband. She puts it on and is ripping at her just done water fountain. I can tell I’m losing this battle and finally take her hair out, and let her put the headband on. 
Then she wants a butterfly clippy, a bobby pin, and my mascara….all in her hair-all at once.
And as I’m typing this Zuri has just yelled from the bathroom to 
“Move my hair! Its getting in the potty!!!!” 
Remi’s pulling Zuri’s hair…
Zuri’s pulling Remi’s hair…
don’t brush my hair…
brush my hair…
do my hair this way, not that way…
there’s yogurt in my hair…
Hair, hair, hair.
Its no wonder I never do mine.

I had booty length hair when I was a baby too! Such a hassle, but so worth it (for me, not my momma) Persevere!

Mines screaming the whole time that it hurts too while Im brushing it! My new miracle brush is the “wet brush” I got at sallys. The only one that gets to her thick hair without “killing” her.

That’s how I made my first BFF. And 25 years later we’re still BFF’s. She demonstrated how to swing on the swings in kindergarten and sat on her booty length hair. I knew we’d be friends. Long hair don’t care.

Talking about hair, hair, hair which consumes most of our lives and can make your day so much better when you get it right, I was curious… What kind of extensions do you have? I am very hesitant because of the damaged that does to your hair, but when you need a change and you are ballsy enough to chop it off, I guess making it longer is the only option.
