Mud And Curls.

Yesterday the kiddos went crazy. Wild. Dirty. They went to play in the backyard and turned on the hose. Like we haven't had enough water! But they were out there for hours.

This one came in first. He got cold. They each had to take a shower and get clean.

When Ruthie got out of the shower I showed her these. They're rags. I also needed her hair wet. She got nervous. "What are you going to do to me?!" I assured her she would love it. It's what my mom did to me when I was her age.

Wrapping the hair up in rags and keeping those rags in over night...

Results in beautimous curls in the morning.

For a girl with bone straight hair, I think we've found a great answer for curls!

Oh. And they all cleaned up very nicely. Even the boys.

That is exactly how we curl our girls hair! Works great and their hair stays curled for several days! ~~Anne

She even looks cute with the rags in her hair. Love the curls, now we'll have to give it a try.

So funny about the curls! Mila's hair is so far out there when she gets up..I have to "tame it" every day. I call it a "Latina Fro." You know - when Ruthie is older she'll be glad she has straight hair and - unfortunately....Mila will be straightening hers (unless perms come back). Miss you!
