History Lesson - Rag Curls

"That night, though it was the middle of the week, Ma bathed Laura and Mary all over, and she put up their hair. She divided their hair into wisps, combed each wisp with a wet comb and wound it tightly on a bit of rag. There were knobby little bumps all over their heads, whichever way they turned on their pillows. I the morning their hair would be curly."

Gorgeous baby girl! My girls had to have rags to sleep in after we read that story, too.

She looks so pretty!!!! Maybe I should try curling my own hair this way, since it won't hold a curl any other way.

Hi Chloe!!! Your hair is GORGEOUS!!! Do you know what "gorgeous" means? It means that your hair is really beautiful... as are YOU! You are really beautiful. You should do rag rolling more often. Did you sleep on them? You and your mommy are so smart.....

I miss you~
