Wednesday morning arrived - time for Mandy to go and get Maya up, get her ready to go to school.
And this is the sight that greeted me when I waltzed into the bathroom where the early grooming work was taking place.
This is how hair, freshly washed, pulled up into four little very tightly coiled pony tails expands while the child sleeps and looks, come morning, when you remove the rubber bands and let it "breathe."
Maya has "bed head" that even beats some of Grammie's!
Yes, that's Mandy you see there in the mirror -in sort of a state of shock -a "where the heck do I begin" look ya know as she contemplates how to comb this tangled mess out into a coif that looks presentable for a sweet little four-year-old to have when she leaves for school this morning.
And here is how things started to finally shape up - with the help of a lot of spray detangler and gentle combing and brushing - a lot of giggles too from Mom and Grammy along the way and suprisingly enough, very little complaints from the Princess, little Miss Maya!
