Just a Little Tip, Take a Little Tip From Me

So, let's just say hypothetically that you have a girl in second grade who is extremely social. Perhaps so social that the teacher has explained that she has several girls in her class who have very strong, confident personalities and it may or may not be stressing said teacher out. [pointed look that ensures you know your child is one of those girls]

These girls that your daughter hangs out with at school have distinct and increasingly teenage-esque behaviors that maybe are starting to alarm you a bit on occasion, though most of the time they are harmless things...just little girls experimenting with being bigger girls.

But let me tell you. Just a small tip. If your daughter has long hair and asks to wear her hair down instead of in the customary braids or "twisties" she usually wears because her and her friends want to play "beauty shop" at recess, decline the request. Really. Just. Say. No.

Because if you're stupid like me you let your child wear her hair down to school for such purpose, you might just end up spending 45 minutes of your life trying to get a tangled hair band out from several knots of hair and brushing 2682 snarls out of her hair.

Just. Say. No.

Gah...for a scary, fleeting moment, I thought you were going to say she came home with her hair cut off by her beauty shop playing friends! The tangles are bad enough. Be still my heart and my own long hair!

Girls. They are just such GIRLS.

Yikes!! At least scissors weren't involved in their hairdressing.

I was sure you were going to say they had cut off her hair. I'm glad it was just tangles.

Oh Lordy Friends! IF there had been hair cut I think I would have gone off the deep end.
