The never ending battle…

Every morning in the Riley household is a battle of sorts….a war on curls if you will!  Pyper sees the brush and she goes running……a week ago she asked if I would straighten her hair she had  two very important birthday parties to attend and wanted a new curl free look….I warned her once we start we can’t stop or it will look soooo silly.  OK Mommy she said with that gleam in her eye the gleam we see when she gets her way.


I got out the straightener and into battle we went.  There were tears, their was screeching…there was ARE YOU DONE YET MOMMY…..then there was this…




Um yeah a little too grown up for Mommy… we added a little pony tail (-:



Pyper was very happy but by three o’clock that afternoon the curls had mostly returned……I had to advise my little trooper that her curls were beautiful and after the battle of the curls she would have to wait to straighten her own next time!

  1. I love it! We have the exact opposite here. Our girls always want me to curl their hair. That battle with that is that their hair is so fine it wont hold a curt long at all, even with the hairspray. Tell Py we love her curls!

  2. Megan wants a hair straightener for Christmas. I wonder if she has any idea what she’s getting into. Right now, she takes 10 minutes to get ready for the day. Pyper’s is cute, but I agree that her curls are lovely!

  3. why do we always want what we can’t have?

    her curls are gorgeous! i hope she learns to embrace them as she gets older. so many girls dream of such beautiful hair.
