Real Dads Do Curly Hair 

I remember the day we found out we were having a baby girl like it was yesterday. I was laying down on the ultrasound table and Eugene (my husband) was standing behind me to the left. I remember Dr. Amaya saying "you're having a girl"!! I can't recall exactly what I said or did in… Continue reading Real Dads Do Curly Hair

Curly Connoisseur: Asha 

Meet Asha Curl type 3B. I met this fun-lovin, Seattle-born, track star turned coach, human sports Wikipedia and now mama, in 1998.

It's not like I thought curls were unprofessional, I just thought people took you more seriously when your hair was not curly. In college, I studied journalism and wanted to be a news anchor.… Continue reading The Professionalism of Curls

“Please come with your hair all down…”

It started out as an innocent invitation to yet another five year old class birthday party. By now, we had the hang of these kiddo parties. Everything from creating homemade birthday cards (save $$ and great practice for PreK writing!) to asking if siblings are allowed. The cool thing about this particular invite was it… Continue reading “Please come with your hair all down…”
