Firt ... here are pics of my curly-do daughter. I remember (not too fondly) a time when she would barely let me brush her hair .... and certainly would NOT let me fuss with it. Now she asks me to. It only took me 35 minutes today. And, we managed to all get out the door on time!!! WOOOHOOO, this is a big accomplishment in our house. She felt silly having her picture taken like this and wouldn't smile.
