The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

A penny for your thoughts? 

The light was right so I went for it. Rahel is such a pretty doll, I love the expression on her face. My daughter loves that she has hair like hers.

Mama please, no more pictures

Curly hair and polka dots!

Thanks to everyone who liked, commented or reblogged the picture of my daughters hair. I showed her all the comments and she is really proud. My husband and I do our best to care for her hair. I love her curls and will never use any chemical straighteners.

I used to relax my hair, but when I discovered I was pregnant with my daughter I stopped.  I decided to grow out my hair and chop off the relaxed ends. I wanted my daughter to be proud of her hair.

So I decided that I needed to practice what I preach.  So I have been growing out my hair for 4 years.  I use protective styles like cornrows and box braids and I love it. 

I want my daughter to grow up to be a strong black woman. I don’t want her to feel that she must conform to someone else’s beauty ideal.  For this reason I vow to never relax my hair again.   

Sometimes I forget how long my daughter’s hair is. The curls are so deceiving and cute :) 

Bath time! Man I love my daughter’s curls :)
