The other day Vienna came up to me and said,
"You want a piece o' me, Mama?!"
I seriously wish I could somehow portray her inflection and demenor, so hilarious! I could not stop laughing, I kept trying to get her to say it again. I don't know where she got it from though.

The girls (Chloe and Eve) finally convinced me to straighten their hair.
This is a huge deal for me. Not only because it takes a long time but because I have very strong feelings about natural hair.
When they were much younger I didn't really know anything about taking care of hair like theirs and made quite a few mistakes. I started researching on line how to take care of mixed- ethnicity hair and the more I read the more I realised " I don't want my girls to be ashamed of or hate their hair!". There are such mixed feelings and controversy out there in the world and a lot of people think that "good hair" is straight hair. And I vehemently oppose that school of thought.
I feel like I have fought a hard fight and possibly a loosing battle with the world in defense of my beautiful girls and their beautiful hair. I want them to love themselves no matter what they look like or dress like. And I want them to be loved for their gentle hearts and kind spirits, not what they look like or if they have the right hair.
If I could instill in them anything it would be to love their Father in Heaven, love others, and love themselves. And so if they want straight hair "just once" I will give it to them, because I love them that much.
