Elena's hair can be frightening in the mornings. Very scary. It's wild, unruly, full, and so, so, so curly.
I'm one of those bad mothers that brushes her child's hair. A fact that makes Elena's life very hard for those five minutes in the morning. Those minutes where I wrestle, spray, comb, pull, tug and twirl all those lovely locks.
Even though there is much moaning, groaning, and gnashing of teeth (and that's just from me!) it is always well worth the effort.
