Just Add Hair Stylist To My Ever Growing List of Skills!!!

Ok, so yes I did purchase a kids "relaxer" kit from Wal Mart and apply it to Ade's hair! It was soooo funny! I have to admit that about 5 minutes into it I realized I may have been over my head! But I pressed on toward the prize! He has some really course hair and very tight coils! So I thought it would be fun to see what happens if we put the relaxer on it! So I strip him down, put him in the bathtub and start the process with 2 of my ever so helpful assistants!!! It was a fairly simple process and I didn't leave it on for the advised amount of time, I took off 5 minutes. I would have to say the best part of the process was Joe coming in from shoveling and asking what I was doing. I kindly told him he may not want to come up and see exactly what I was doing, because I didn't know how he would feel about me putting a chemical on his 18 month old sons hair!!!:) He came up to the bathroom and the sheer look of HORROR on his face made me almost wet my pants it was sooooooo funny!!! But the end result was ADORABLE!!! He has these big loose curls now and it softened his hair quite a bit! And Daddy LOVED it! He has an opinion on Ade's hair which cracks me up! He likes it long!!! I say score for the white mamma processing the babies hair!!!

So another funny story this week. I was on the phone to a friend having a serious conversation and I had the door shut when the girls pranced Ade in after playing dress up with him! I busted out laughing and my friend and I were rolling on the phone! Ade was so happy and he had no clue he was being laughed out! The sisters had struck!!! Watch out buddy, you have years of this ahead of you! Daddy didn't think this was too funny!

My lovely husband suggested I write about something funny that was said each time in my post, so I think I will take him up on that! I was playing Farkle with Max and Maya yesterday and Maya burped, So Max looks right up at her and says, "Maya, you just burped right in my beautiful face!"haha!!!

And then Joe and I kissed each other and Maya gave us a nasty look and said, "Yuck, you just kissed right in front of my face!" Oh child! She has no clue how blessed she is!

I hope you all have an awesome day!


  1. Ah, dress-up time with younger brothers! My sis and I have younger twin brothers, who voluntarily played dress-up with us in their early years - we have pictures of them at my grandparents', wearing old dresses, gloves, and beads of my grandma's...the youngest twin always insisted on being "Sally" when he was playing a female role :)

    And they've turned out to be very nicely balanced, you know, there you have it.

  2. Ohhhh girl, my black friends would slap me if they knew I tried a relaxer on Lily's hair. LOL
