Doing Her Sister’s Hair

Maura (2+) doesn’t let me brush her hair or add a barrette or bow when I visit.  And if you get a band in she is likely to pull it out.  I went upstairs to see how we were coming along on getting ready to load up the car. Drive to Laura’s and James’  for the 4th of July.  Anna(7+) was brushing and putting Maura’s hair into a ponytail. This is never an easy task.

Anna had just set the pink brush on the bench.  And Maura was sitting there with her feet dangling. Looking in the mirror.     I thought it best to get them unaware. No time to clear up the background.  Just shoot.   After a few minutes, Anna turns to me and said “She is my WORST customer.”

    Do all 2+ year olds hate having their hair combed? You were describing Clare to a “T”. What a cute photo! I know you are enjoying being w/ your grandchildren.

    • Well I have tried to brush it when it looks pretty wild and she must know I don’t know what I am doing and I give up!

    That picture is one of a kind. I wish I had had a big sister, especially one who would take care of me like that.

    Way too cute! They are precious and after meeting Mara, I do not klnow how Anna got her to sit still to get her hair done. It was a special occasion! Priceless moments that sisters will love to see when they grow up. What a collection of wonderful family photos you have for them to cherish already!

  15. I love the candid. Who cares about the ‘non-straightened’ background; the expressions on the girls’ faces are terrific.
