pray, that you take away from having me as your mother.
My mother didn't know it.
I didn't know it.
I want you to listen closely...
NEVER GET A PERM!!!
It will not "control" your curly hair.
What it WILL do, however, is make it bigger.
As in, "my perm ate my homework," HUGE.
In the 5th grade I looked like Cousin IT on roller skates. (But hopefully a little cuter.)
At least my hair helped cushion my (many) falls.
I am fully aware that you will curse me for your curly hair when you are 12 and thank me around age 20.
I'm okay with that.
Really, I've been there.
You can cut it, straighten it, color it, whatev.
