Well, the time has come to say good bye to the braids. I had Madison's long, curly locks braided before vacation on July 10. I even put the beads in myself! We have experienced 4 weeks of stress free mornings without the headache of combing hair, but this is the weekend when the braids must come down. Maddie loves her hair in braids, but has absolutely no desire to sit through the process again - ugh! She did really well for the first 2 hours of the process, but fell apart in hour 3 with plenty of tears, whines, and generally foul attitude. McKenzie sits through the process much better. Of course, McKenzie has 1/4 of the hair that Maddie does at this point in life.
So long braids! So long easy morning! So long purple and white beads! I hope to see you again very soon!
