My child’s hair. Well, there really are no words to describe it. If you mated a bird’s nest with a Brillo pad, the offspring would have softer and silkier hair than my child. When I wash it and spray the anti-knot serum in it, perfection. When she sleeps and rubs her head against her sheets, nightmare. She wakes up with a halo of fro which is, to be perfectly honest, a little bit unsettling.
She also has hybrid hair. Half of her hair is straight and smooth; the other half is Brillo pad-esque. I guess she’s a perfect 50/50 of her dad and me. I’m sure you can guess where she got the Brillo pad fro from – yours truly, ahem. So, I apologize to my child for passing along my fro gene. Please don’t be bitter, sweet lil’ Anna. And please don’t be mad that I’m posting these pictures of you.
View from the top: The back is bird nest spawn, the front is an ad for Thermasilk. See what I mean? Note: I did not touch her hair when she woke up – this is how it looks every single morning before I spray it down with cement to keep it from doing this in public.
Side view: How many flocks of seagulls are hiding up in there?
I don’t think Anna has any problems with her hair.
I love how the sun hits her fro in this picture. Very artistic.
I spy a piece of grass in this photo. It’s like Where’s Waldo. Except you’re trying to find a piece of grass. For the record, I have no idea how she has grass in her hair.
This is Anna’s solution for a bad hair day. Oh, and I’ve figured out a way to get her to eat now – let her sit in my office chair with a bowl – just like mom does. Please send my Mom of the Year medals ASAP!
