Oh my {dear}!

Just got home from staying the night at an indoor waterpark/lodge....the kids had a blast on the slides and with their friends!

Came home and everyone jumped in the shower and washed all the chlorine off....


my middle child (you know the one with the red, curly hair) had the biggest and I mean the BIGGEST knot in her hair....

we conditioned, we sprayed, we infused BUT we had to cut it out.....

Let's just say she won't be wearing a pony tail for a while...

so sad.. such beautiful hair!!
when I was in elementary school.
eons ago ..
at the turn of the century..
I wore my hair in a pony tail..
up high on top of my head..
the kid sitting behind me..
(my seat and his desk were connected)
reached up with scissors in hand..
grabbed my pony tail..
and chopped a huge chunk out of it..
he was definitely punished for his misdeed..
but I ended up with a jagged pixie cut..
not very happy at all..
neither were my parents..
warm hugs..
lauyghing smiles..

Oh I remember my Mom trying to get big knots out of my hair like that. I would cry and cry! All the detanglers in the world don't always work on naturally curly hair do they?
She is precious!

Oh no!
That is terrible!
I read on FB where you went, and we just LOVE that place!
How do your kids not have school???

Such pretty hair. I suppose the dangers of having a full head of hair is the knots!!!

Darlene said...

OOOOOooo that is so sad that you ended up having to cut the knot out. I have heard that curly hair is really hard to handle but it is just SOOOO pretty!!!!!

Sounds like a great time at the indoor water park. We are wanting to go to one near here. I have heard they are pretty pricey though.

Oh no! I hope she doesn't mind it too much. I can only imagine what curly hair must be like. Water park sounds like fun!

Jenni said...

Oh, so sorry about the knot in your daughter's hair! I remember getting some of the worst tangles as a child, even with straight hair. Hopefully her hair will grow quickly! She is so adorable, pony tail or not! :)

Have a good night!

Debbie, i know exactly how you feel and how your daughter was feeling. Sadie gets those knots if we dont comb it out after every bath. Glad you had a great time. Waterparks are sooooo fun! and memories from when we are kids last a lifetime!

April said...

Oh, no...not that beautiful red hair of hers! Bless her heart...and yours! :)

Jboo said...

Oh my -- she has such beautiful hair! Tangled knots are so difficult -- sorry you had to cut it out! I'm sure her hair is beautiful no matter what! Have a great Wednesday!

She has amazing hair!!!

Ruth said...

Oh no!! Poor thing.

My mom would always cut my hair if it got too tangled. My dad was actually the one who would blow dry it and comb out all the snarls. He loved long hair. LOL
