It’s Changed My Life, I Tell You!

You will never believe what simple $3 investment has dramatically changed our lives here at the Musings household.  It’s a hairbrush. 

Seriously.

A few weeks ago my good friend Sarah posted on Chic Critique about an Ouchless hairbrush that promises to comb through the worst snarls a little girl has to offer without the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth that typically ensues. Now, Sarah knows something about combing little girls’ hair.  Both of her girls have long, thick hair.  I knew that if she said this brush was the real deal, it must be worth a try. 

Until this week, hair combing has been a dreaded event in my house.  My 5-year-old is determined to have long hair, but her wavy hair tangles easily and causes a great deal of stress.  She tries to cooperate because I threaten to cut it every time she squawks, but it is getting increasingly harder to comb out her long curly locks.

Enter the Goody Ouchless Hairbrush.  This thing is miraculous.  I’m serious.  If you have a daughter, you MUST get one.  (And no, I receive no benefits from Goody for promoting their products.  Not that I’d turn them down if they were offering.)

The secret is the retractable bristles.  I don’t even have to take care when I am brushing.  I can just drag the thing through her hair as fast as I want, and she never makes a peep.  I’m seriously going to buy one for every room in the house. 

In other news, the kids have the day off from school.  The weather is perfectly glorious.  Whatever shall we do with ourselves?  I find it hard to find activities that are appropriate for kids that span ages 3 to 9. 

And also.  Today is R’s 3 year birthday!  Happy birthday, you little stinker.  Mama loves you.
