I love to have my hair brushed. Is there anything more wonderful than having someone play softly with your hair? I submit that there is not. So, since I am quite the thinker, I have been training my girls for quite some time to comb and brush my hair.
I admit this has one (un)fortunate side effect. They aren't really content simply to brush. They must also "decorate". So, I often look like this.Last night, after an especially delightful session of beauty shop, I was both incredibly beautiful. . .
. . .and missing quite a hunk of hair from the back of my head. Every girl has to learn the lesson about twisting and curling a comb in hair. I learned the lesson in my own hair when I was probably 7 or 8. And someone else (we won't mention names, but she looks a little sheepish in the picture above) learned the lesson in my own hair last night.
Was the loss of the hair worth the 30 minutes of brushing?
