Getting ready for bed

“Mama, my hair is definitely all tanglish. You need to comb it.”
– Emily, unhappy with her own painful attempts to comb her hair after bath

Brushing Emily’s hair in the morning

“Emily, you have hair just like Mama’s– soft, smooth, shiny… and you can’t do a thing with it.”
– Mama, trying to get all Emily’s slippery hair in a neat pony tail

“Mama, I can do one thing with my hair.”
– Emily

“What’s that?”
– Mama

“I can put a hat on it!”
– Emily
