"Mamma, you make my hair corly?" Annie loves going to church, and apparently tonight was a special night. I heated the rollers and set her hair. Then, we went to go eat dinner. She was sitting at the table just as proud as could be, knowing that the "new and improved Annie" would soon be emerging. The boys looked at her like she was nuts, while Emma was begging me to make her hair curly, too.
After dinner, I took her into the bathroom and carefully unraveled each roller. When the last roller was put away, I turned her around and gasped, "Oh honey! look how pretty!"
These were her thoughts....
I looked up at Joel and said, "PLEASE!!! tell the child she looks beautiful!" He bent over and said, "Honey, I love your hair. You look so pretty." And just as quick as the tears came, they were gone.
