This past year, she was growing it out for my little sister’s wedding. She wanted to be able to have a fancy updo. Unfortunately, she still struggled to brush her hair. I mean, she would brush it but not well. I could not tell by looking at her that it was brushed even though I saw her do it. She and I talked about it and decided it was not a battle worth fighting. We decided to go back to a shorter style since it was easier.
It wasn’t worth it to have to nag her about her hair. It wasn’t worth it to start the day with a negative interaction. So, I let it go. She still looked beautiful in my sister’s wedding even though it was different than what we had imagined. And I still have to remind her to brush her hair, but it is soooooo much easier.
