Wherein I compare myself unfavorably to an 11 year old and also vow never to wear corn rows again, as they do not suit me in the slightest.

So how come when she does my hair, I end up looking like a HeeHaw reject, but when she does her own hair she ends up looking like the next Liya Kebede?


But, yes, I agree….how sweet was it that she wanted to do my hair? I may even let her do it again sometime if she wants to….

  1. Haha, I love this! She really is amazingly stunning, isn’t she? The braids she did in your hair look great too! Your girls seem like such sweethearts. I get a lump in my throat in practically every post I read about them. Thanks for sharing with us!

    How much pain were you in? When my daughter braids mine it brings tears to my eyes!

    Beautiful family by the way.

  3. Ha! Yes, HeeHaw and Liya Kebede about covers it! No, really, you do look a lot cuter than that (but not as good as Merrily–how DOES she manage to pull that off so well?). How sweet of her to want to do that. That’s great girl-bonding. At least you finally get to try out all of those snaps, barrettes and ballies if you want to… but that would be going even well beyond the Hee Haw look, wouldn’t it?

    It just so happens that my little 2 year-old Ethiopian volunteered to do my hair yesterday. I had to defer to another day, but I’ll bet you look a whole lot better than I will!

  4. You are lit from the inside my friend, you could shave your head or wear dreadlocks either one and be gorgeous.

  5. You are BOTH beautiful! 🙂 I wish I could get her help with my daughter’s hair, when we finally get her home!

  6. It hurt so bad it made my nose run– she braids VERY tightly. In fact, after taking the braids out last night I still have sore spots this morning….


  7. I don’t know if the braids gave you a brow lift, or what, but I was sure I was looking at a picture of your oldest, not you, until I read the text. Hmmm, I might be willing to try braids after all…

  8. Heeheehee

  9. You are a brave women to post that picture! What a sweet mom you are!

  10. OH you are a brave woman! I would not have posted that pic! Oh, who am I kidding, I have posted a horrid pic of myself, lol.
    That is really sweet that she wanted to do your hair.

  11. We white girls were not made for corn rows. I’ve had it down before and since I’m blonde like you…it looked just like yours!! 🙂

  12. Done…not down. Sheesh.

  13. I never liked how i looked with those, either. It always worked much better to just have all the braids free–no cornrow part of it.

  14. I thought it was your eldest at first, too. You are a dear mama to let her try her hand at making you beautiful in her own way, but I agree, she needs to let you remain braid-free.

  15. While you think it may not suit you, I bet it’s a memory she’ll always have!
    Those look so tight they could give you a perpetual smile!

  16. LOL!!!! Hee Haw reject!!! Hilarious!

  17. Oh, I think you both look great!

    I had a dream about you last night- come read about it on my blog. 🙂

  19. Oh Mary, I think it just suits you fine…look at the joy on your face! YOu are beautiful..again, thank you for sharing your life with us.

  20. How special that she wanted to do your hair. Did you leave it like that all day? I think you look pretty cute!!
