There is something so special about brushing and braiding my childrens hair. A deep connection is made; the girls know that they have our full attention. I love this chore and what I love even more is that Dad helps out too. In fact, he makes the prettiest braids for the girls and they just adore them. Sometimes, in the evening I like to place a few drops of lavender oil in palm of my hand and rub it ever so gently on their scalp and hair - it is a pleasant experience for the both of us and the sleepy scent lingers on throughout the night invoking sweet dreams. A nice alternative to a hot, scented bath during these steamy, summer nights.
How are you keeping cool and calm this summer in your corner of the world?
