My 13 Year Old Daughter is Now Doing Her Own Hair + Small Twists
Hey Mocha Family,
I am more than a little excited about the fact that Mocha Girl 2 can twist her own hair! Had I known she could do such a good job, I would have let her try sooner. She's been asking for months, but I was concerned about the fragile state of her hair. Honestly, I like the twists she did for herself better than the ones I do. Win. Win.
Oddly, I had a similar experience with this daughter when she was learning to read. I was a stickler for decoding words by sounding out the parts. One day, Mocha Girl 2 just rattled off a sentence like she had been reading fluently for years. I wanted to know how she did it! In response, she wanted to know if I wanted her to decode it first. Apparently, she had moved beyond that step, but willingly did what I expected of her. Lol! I've finally learned my lesson!
I can't tell you what it does to my heart to see my girls mature to working with their natural hair. They are miles ahead of me at that age, and I am so excited to see where their journeys take them.
