One of my favourite things about having girls (ok so the list is 6 miles long) is the fact that I can let them have beautiful long hair. I love having my hair long, playing with it, straightening it, begging whatever is left of my curls after two pregnancies to appear and so on. So when I found out I would have not 1 but 2 girls, visions of ponytails and french braids danced through my head.
Now it's taken a long time to get to a place where either of those two things were a possibility for either of our girls. I went back and tried to find the post of the first time I did a ponytail or the like in Bethany's hair but couldn't find it. She was almost 2 before I could even squeak out two teeny, tiny pig tails at the back amidst her mullet. Audrey was much younger when I was able to "do" her hair but with each millimeter it grows I become increasingly excited about the newest do possibility.
After all the fuss and muss and half a can of hairspray, all I can say is - little girls ROCK!
