we’re trying something new. crochet twists over zelda’s natural hair, which is braided underneath. our active girl’s hair needs a break and this a good way to give it one, plus we won’t have to sit for hair for (hopefully) a couple of months. i was very impressed with zelda yesterday through the whole process of washing, detailing and then the braiding and application of hair. she sat for close to 4 hours total through the various stages. she doesn’t like it, but she handled it very well.
I’m overwhelmed by the news. I can’t get my head around it. It hurts. I worry. I’m paralyzed with fear for my child and her siblings and our family. What is the world coming to? I cannot protect her or them from something so senseless and that is my worst nightmare. These kids, our family is everything to us. If the news doesn’t hit home for you, know it does for us. Our white privilege does not extend to them; it does not protect them. The law that I’ve trusted and built my career upon fails them time and time again. We must speak out and we must do something. This is our problem. This is our world and its a scary place right now. We must change it and change it NOW!
