So, Lacy has been asking to have REALLY curly hair 'JUST like Shirley Temple'. I was thinking on a nice rainy day, we would tackle that big job. Well, I was crunched for time one morning, but really wanted to give Lacy some curls when she asked. This first photo is from doing spiral curls with a curling iron. She LOVED it, but wanted to try the styrofoam ones I had told her about a long time ago.
One weekend morning, we went for it. We grabbed the curlers, popped in Bright Eyes and started rolling! I don't even know where to start, the day was just packed with special memories!
First, I had given Lacy the nickname 'Curly Temple' and she insisted that I call her that for the entire day...EVEN if she was getting scolded! haha.
Once the rollers were in-she REFUSED to allow me to take them out! She kept dashing to the bathroom and smiling at her reflection of roller-head. Lacy tried to lay down on the couch with her roller-head while watching the movie and said that it was not comfortable. I got this brilliant idea-tell her about how 'little girls had to sleep that way and we should take out your rollers so you don't have to be uncomfortable sleeping with your rollers.' She LIGHTS up and asks oh, so excitedly, 'MOMMY! May I sleep with my rollers too?!' DOH! Backfire.
Then, she decides that she is NOT pretending anymore and she IS Shirley Temple, NOT Curly Temple, and I must refer to her as SHIRLEY. She was VERY serious about this!
FINALLY at 3:30, I convinced her to let me take out her rollers. Let me tell you that for 10 minutes, she literally kept going back and forth on her decision and I was walking on egg shells trying to convince her that she had made the right decision to take the rollers out! The minute she looked in the mirror, she BEAMED and immediately started jumping, loving how her hair bounced. I need to buy more rollers and do her entire head in small rollers next time, but mission accomplished. We both had a very fun and memorable day...next time we'll have better curls;)
