So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

 We made our first attempt at braids this morning. Rugrat had short hair for her time before us but it grew quite quickly (in fact, I'm thinking it must have been a feat for them to keep it short). She has had to get over having it brushed and fixed in the morning. Until we got a kid's all-in-one shampoo plus conditioner to use, she would have a few (very few) tangles which would result in great weeping and wailing. Now the one tangle she sometimes has results in a prune face and the word "tangle" before we go on to the business of putting it up.

When I got the first braid this morning, she ran her hand over it and commented on it several times.

"Beautiful." and "Like it." were the things I heard most. It wasn't as neat as I like but I figured this was her intro to getting it braided and I would probably put it in a ponytail before the day was over anyway. Her hair is so fine that I would be surprised if it stays in the braids for too long.

It makes me happy that she had such a positive reaction though. Maybe we're starting to get past the "hair styling is 'torture'" to the "what should we do with my hair today" stage.
