Ready To Start Again - With Curls

Christmas break (and flu break - ugh) are officially over, and school starts back up again tomorrow. Early morning wake-ups, scheduling, and increased organization here I come.

As I type this, Katarina is giving me pin curls. Which seems to mostly consist of spraying water all over me, twisting my hair, and then sticking bobby pins into my head.

I remember sitting on the couch behind my mother, and playing with her hair while we watched movies. I would pull out every single hair bow, clip, and barrette I owned. My goal was to fit all of them into her shoulder-length hair.

It is clear that Katarina has a more focused plan for her hair styling efforts. And I might just have curly hair for the restart of school, which will make me a very fancy mom.

So the important question is...who is going to bring me 6am coffee so I can wake up tomorrow?

    You are braver than I. I could never commit to anything that requires me to be out of bed before noon on a regular basis. ^-^

  2. We started back 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately with my job I only had 1 day off.

  3. See my younguns went back week before last. My mom used to give me pin curls when I was little. They are pretty when they dry and come undone..

    1. They are pretty! We learned that they definitely need to stay in longer, especially with my thick hair.

  5. My kids started back last week and it was HARD to get up that first day at the regular time. Yikes. I liked the 8am morning better than the 6am mornings. :)

    1. You might not have brought me coffee, but your tip about plugging the coffee maker in was very timely yesterday. ;-)

  9. I can't bring you coffee cuz you're HOURS ahead of me, and if I'm up at 3 am, it's not pretty. However, I do want pics of those curls!

  11. Hope you don't have to sleep on pin curls! I had to do so every Saturday night of my youth and I still cringe at the thought!

    1. Oooh. Sleeping on them hurts! We did them during the day, so it wasn't too bad.
