Me at the age of 4, but it may as well be my baby because she is a carbon copy.

Where Did She Get Those Curls?
My youngest daughter has curls. We're talking Shirley Temple curls. Ladies stop us on a regular basis to comment about her beautiful hair. My other two daughters, one who was blessed with wavy and the other straight hair, just smile as they are passed by without a word. Then the inevitable is always asked, "where did she get such darling curls?" We all just smile because the question is expected. My hair is straighter than straight, but not because I was born that way. I once had uncontrollable curls springing from my head also. Curls that drove me nuts because they never stayed in place. My sanity came in the form of a flat iron. I liked straight hair and so did my husband. (He liked long hair too, but I chopped it short when we were just friends, before he was allowed to have an opinion.) Only when I was running short on time did I allow my hair to go au natural. Recently, I was blessed with a new cousin (by marriage) who is a stylist. Her gift to me was a Brazilian Blowout. Here I am, seven months later, and I am beginning to embrace my inner curl for the first time. The Blowout is now more out than in and I'm OK with that. My name is Mama Curls and it's a pleasure to meet you.
