It's time for curls, girls

My three older girls wore sponge rollers for years. I spent literally hundreds of hours rolling each little head night after night (rarely, if ever, skipping a night) until they were in elementary school, late elementary school.

LOL! No eyelash curling here.

I've been waiting not-so-patiently for the time to come. And it was a little harder with my fine-haired daughter.
