Hair Brush Wars
We are both exhausted, tearful and no further then when we started.
“Please, let me just get that one, little knot out?” I beg, holding the hairbrush delicately up.
You always hurt me. Nooooooo!” my four-year old daughter, tosses her tangled locks and runs from the room, talking the hairbrush with her.
It’s true, in my desire to get the knots out I do hurt her and yet I persist. I used to laugh when my friends would tell me of the epic battles to brush their daughters’ hair. How bad can it be? I wondered.
