The other day Sharon asked me to put her in a pony tail for school. Gladly, I had her sit down with me and did her hair. To most mom's this would be a chore. I was delighted that I could hold a brush with ease and wrap a rubber band into her hair. Not only was I able to do it, it looked really cute!
When the girls were toddlers I wasn't able to do their hair. It was always left up to either my mom or Steve. I never got to enjoy putting piggy tails in their hair. The fact is their too old for that now and I missed out. Of course, you know me; I have to look on the bright side. My husband is the BEST at doing little girls hair! I don't think there are too many dads that can put a pony tail in their daughters hair and my husband can even do braids!
I know the girls won't look back and say, "my mom never did my hair." Instead, they will look back and know that their dad did a wonderful job making sure they left the house looking as cute as can be and I think that's wonderful.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
