Secret Mommyhood Confession Saturday #5

It's my fault that Lane's hair is so curly.

There! I've said it. For more years than I can remember, I've been telling everyone that my hair is straight. After all, when it is long, it is pretty straight.

There's no hiding now that my hair is short.

Somehow I don't remember it being this curly the last time it was short. But that was back in Alberta in a dry climate. This more humid Manitoba climate is destroying my happy self-image of long flowing, sorta wavy (but never curly) hair.

Look at this sweetheart. Isn't she adorable? Now that Lane's finally grown some more hair, she's kind of got an Einstein meets Troll Doll look. She rocks it!


Her mama however, it a whole other story. I can't say that I can rock the messy curls look, especially in the morning.

Yikes! I just woke up and it's all over the place. The clip does nothing to keep these curls from escaping.

Not so cute on a grown up. :(

And the back? Yup, definitely curly bonkers! Gah! And all this time I was blaming Lane's sweet curly cues on Terry.

My bad!



I'm sharing my confession over at All Work and No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something. Dish your own dirt, if you dare!

Hi Tawny - So I am not a mom, but here is my secret (not so secret, cause I am too lazy to be bothered) confession to you. I had curly hair as a child. Then through teen years and early adult hood, it was almost bone straight. Now, the older I get, the curlier it gets. On the regular, I look like curly sue. Yes, ringlets, at 34 years old.
Loved reading your blog though! Happy Easter!

My hair is bone straight so I am hating on both of your gorgeous curls!! When my son was an infant and up till he was one he had lovely curls. It's wavy still and I'm sure that if we let it grow it would curl. Sniff I'm jealous!
