Mine, not so good. It started when I took a shower (doesn't it always?) and heard thud... thud...followed by the scampering of little feet coming to tell me "Mommy, don't worry, we will put the popsicles away for you." Then I calculated how much time I thought I had left to shower before said popsicles would be completely melted. Thankfully it wasn't too bad. I guess my luck hadn't run out yet. Don't worry, it's coming.
So, after cleaning up that mess I was ready for a new project. I had the bright idea that it would be fun to curl the girls' hair. You know, to prep for their flower girl duties coming up this Sunday. I figure I'd get the ringlet look down pat before the big day. I had borrowed my Mom's 3/4" iron since I only had a big one. I cranked the heat all the way up because those things never get hot enough or stay hot the whole time. You know what I mean. I sectioned a nice little piece on the top of Allison's head, since she volunteered to be first and Emily had already made herself scarce.
Next came the smell...
And when I unrolled it, this is what I found...
Holy cow! I've never seen hair disintegrate like that before. It also turned her hair red at the singed edges that were still attached to her head. And of course, this had to be right on the top of her head.
Thankfully I was able to give that section a little trim and it's only a couple of inches shorter than the surrounding hair. I think I'm the only person that will ever notice it.
Curling is on the back burner for a while and now it's on to the next project. I wonder what the rest of the day has in store for me.
How is your day shaping up?
