Braids!

Luz decided she wanted to grow her hair out. I was reluctant at first because it is a constant battle reminding her to keep her hair out of her face. I now understand why my mom always used to complain when my hair was not pulled back - how do you see? how do you expect people to see you? - it drives me mad. I am constantly putting headbands in Luz's hair and begging her not to remove my handiwork. I have barrettes strategically located throughout the house, in my purse, in the car, just in case. But lately the battle has subsided a little and she is starting to ask for ponytails and then just the other day she asked for braids...I wasn't sure if I could do it - a combination of the lack of length and faith in my ability. It worked though...at least for a little while:

Lucy reminds me of you at that age, and we had the exact same hair "dilemmas."
