I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Me- I used to hate my hair. I was jealous of my sister's hair that was long and straight.  Mine was thick, ugly, and short. I tried cutting it myself to make it thinner, but it didn't work. I had a big clump missing in the back of my head. I had to get it cut really short to even it out. I looked like a boy.  Now, I love it. It is long, silky,and a beautiful shade of brown.  I am always getting complements on it. My friends are always saying "I wish I had your hair. Your hair is so much better than mine. I love your hair." Even teachers complement my hair. However, I still have two problems with my hair. When I have it tied in the back with a rubber band and people can't see all my hair, they still sometimes think I'm a boy. My friends don't seem to have this problem. Everybody always knows they are girls even when they tie back their hair. I am not a tomboy, and I don't dress like a boy so that doesn't explain it. The second thing I don't like about my hair is I can't decide if I want to grow my bangs back or not. I have changed my mind at least 7 times. I grow them really long then I cut them, I grow them really long, I cut  them. Every time I cut them it takes a long time to grow them back again. The minute they get long again I cut them again. It is like the game babies play where they keep on throwing something on the floor and scream until you pick it up, and as soon as you pick it up they throw it down again and scream again. So as you can tell their are a lot of ups and downs about my hair.-

Mom- I would have to say that overall, my hair has mostly been one of the major annoyances of my life. I hardly ever like the way it looks, and can't seem to fix it. I guess that is true of a lot of us females. I remember my younger sister crying when she got haircuts when we were kids because she was never happy with them. I was not that bad. I always figured that no matter how bad it was, it was going to grow back, and it was not like being somebody who was actually bald or losing their hair. Still, that didn't mean I was always happy with my hair. When I was younger, my hair was straighter, as I got older it got much wavier. I hated that. Then again, I guess that is one of the things about hair if you're hair is straight you want curly or wavy hair, if you're hair  is curly or wavy,
you want straight hair. At least, that is true for most of us, at least when we are young. I have seen it with my daughter who used to be jealous of her younger sister's long thin straight hair but has recently seemed to grow to appreciate her own shorter thicker hair which is more like mine. I have always loved my younger daughter's hair as well, but I have noticed that lately her hair seems to be getting much wavier too although it still not as thick as mine and still a lot easier to style than mine. However lately, I am at peace about my hair. I have decided to stop trying to blow dry it and straighten it all the time and I am trying to embrace the thick and wavy hair I was given. So far it is going okay, but I don't know how long this easy going attitude about my hair will last nor does my peacefulness about my hair extend to its color. Those gray hairs still gotta go!

And that's our view. Tune in again for another topic.


  1. Hi following back thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Hi - I have really thick hair too and what has helped me is getting it thinned out every 6 weeks. Otherwise it's hard to do anything with it. I used to have it long and kept it ponytailed or braided and it always looked great - but now that I keep it short I need it thinned out or textured to make it more manageable.

    Next time you get a haircut (at the salon ladies) let them pamper you a bit. Get it washed, trimmed/cut and have them thin it out good. You'll love it.

    Tina - btw I'm following you know - thanks for stopping by Family Literacy and saying hi. =D
