While I was weighed down with the thought of combing my oldest daughter’s hair for school, she made things worse by putting in a style request:
“Mommy, this is the style I want – straight and curvy, and straight and curvy, going over like this,” her hand travelling to the other side of her head.
How did she know that I could accomplish such a feat😮🙄? She didn’t even ask me if I knew how to do it!
Well, I set to work, my fingers timid to do what they had not tried in YEARS.
Of course, straight cornrows are a breeze.
But the first curvy one just looked like a straight line that got distracted🤣. I had to do better on the next one, I told myself.
Steadily, my hands got more assertive, and my fingers became more confident. I gradually got back in the groove.
My grand finale was correcting the first curvy row I had made.
I was impressed👍🏽!
You know what? Sometimes it takes someone else (in this case, a 7-year-old child) to challenge you so you can experience a new victory!
I’m still pleased about how it all turned out. I suddenly want to comb my girls’ hair🥳🙂!
