As a kid I never grew long hair. I preferred short hair, just like my brothers. Therefore I never learned to braid my hair. Daughter is very much unlike me. She likes her hair long. Like her mother has (I grew longer hair as a student. Much cheeper as it requires less visits to the hairdresser). Daughter got spoiled by one of her caretakers, because whenever she requested an ‘Elsa-braid’ she got one. In the past three months I pushed myself to learn it too. She would soon start in school and school teachers don’t have time for braiding. And then two months of daycare closure followed. Slowly but surely I got the hang of braiding. This morning I could even finish one before heading to daycare. Mommy power skill unlocked.
