…of mothers everywhere.

Crazy Hair 2

Last Monday was Crazy Hair Day at A and K’s school.  I didn’t think much of it.  Just tried to do something silly with her hair (Alden’s hair is buzzed so there isn’t much to do there), get it to stay and then get to school on time.  But when I dropped them off I was amazed.  There were simple ‘dos, complicated ‘dos and ‘dos that made you take a second look.  I instantly thought of all the mothers who woke up extra early, made it a priority to do their child’s hair and did the best they could.  I was proud to be a mother in that moment.  Proud that we work so hard to engage our children in silly things like Crazy Hair Day.  Really, it’s not about the crazy hair.  It’s about giving them a piece of ourselves, giving them our attention and letting them know that if it’s important to them, it’s important to us.  Maybe it sounds silly but looking around that parking lot, I was really touched.
