On this last day of NaBloPoMo, I just want to say: whew! I did it!
The hair wars in my family continued over Thanksgiving. I don't understand what my child's hair has to do with anyone else in her family nor why they want to make her feel that she is not as pretty if her hair is not pressed straight. My daughter is beautiful. She is also smart and hard-working and funny and kind. I love her pretty little face and I love the deep conversations we have and the insightful remarks she makes. She brings me joy.
In that spirit, I leave you with this: How to Talk to Little Girls. Enjoy!
