Braiding

Piper likes braids. Except when she doesn’t. Then she wants pigtails. And rainbow hair accessories. Or glittery headbands. Mismatched barrettes. Silver bows. Purple ribbons.

Piper has a hair agenda for each day. She sits in my lap or on the floor beside me and directs. She knows exactly what she wants. It’s her hair, after all.

Lately, Piper wants me to braid her hair wet before bed so that she wakes up with wavy locks. I take her golden brown strands, that look remarkably like mine, and comb and  part and straighten and braid Piper into the person she wants to be.

    • Thanks so much. That made my whole day. And it almost makes me feel better about the fact that Piper is wearing two pairs of underwear to school today because she just couldn’t decide. I figured two was better than none 🙂

  1. We now have a hair routine too. It involves Elmo. But what am I saying? Everything involves Elmo. After waking to the “sunny days” alarm song, dressing, and teeth brushing, we head downstairs to continue the morning’s Sesame Street episode. I am then “allowed” to brush and style Gali’s hair as she sits on my lap.
