II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I woke up to find this note on my desk this morning. I knew Brooklyn had been drawing something last night before we went to bed. Apparently it was a request for straight hair today. She has decided she hates her curly hair (bet you've been there Kate) and she wants straight hair. If only she could recognize now while she's young, how beautiful her curly, red hair is and not want so badly to be a barbie doll like everyone else with straight, blonde hair. Sadly, she may be an adult before she sees that she's got the kind of hair people envy!
Anyhow, I had to share this drawing with you all. It was so cute!
Notice the first girl in the picture has curly, messy hair with a big frown and it says "grose" (she always makes her lowercase g's backwards) and then there is the girl with straight hair and a big smile and it says "Adoribl".
Ha ha!

I've been there too except Haile wanted straight hair at the age of 4! You've lasted longer than I did!
PS - Yes I still do Zumba and LOVE it! On the 26th they're adding a Sat am class that I will probably do too. I can't do the first one b/c it's my sisters wedding that day. Come join us!!

Poor thing :( I hope she'll come to appreciate being unique in the hair department. Isn't it crazy how young girls starting internalizing peer pressure and everyone else's idea of what's "pretty"? Maybe she jsut wants straight hair like her mom?

Tell her there's too much damage to be done if she straightens it. It's so much nicer to be able to do your hair in ten minutes and have it looking bouncy, curly, and always different from the rest.

Rock on curly girlie!

Tell Brooklyn to keep her beautiful red curls.
I always wanted beautiful red curls, especially after watching "Far and Away" with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Her red curly hair was so beautiful in that movie and I SO wanted hair like that. Yet I have this naturally straight hair that wont hold a curl for more than a minute! haha guess we just all want what we don't have huh.
