Big Owlet decided it was time for a change... she spied two packets of henna in the drawer - one for each of us - then convinced me it was time I dyed my hair with it... and wouldn't it be nice if we matched? I suppose these days she is relating so much to Huz. They are so similar in so many ways and she knows it. He is most definitely her favourite, as she's often told me... But now, as she grows, she's looking for ways that she might be like me too. We're working to reconnect and spend more time together, just the two of us... And although we weren't alone on that day, it was rather lovely to share the experience, towels on heads, mud down the drain... As I used to with my mother... And we walked away with more than a shared experience in common. Now we are on the same team, apparently. The red team! And what a lovely team mate she is too.
How do you spend time connecting with your kids? Do you feel ok with them dying their hair? Are you on the red team too? xx
