Brushing hair

If you had told me that one day I would be sitting on the couch brushing a little girl’s hair and enjoying it, I never would have believed you in a million years. I didn’t imagine my life like this. I never imagined I would be a stay at home dad.  I always imagined a life with kids, a wife, house full of animals and all of the things that I have.  I never imagined it would be like this though.  I never imagined that brushing your daughter’s hair could be so uplifting that it erases everything stressful that went on that day. I never could have imagined that this is what being a dad is like. Now it pains me to imagine the day that I no longer get to brush that little girl’s hair.

    This is so lovely to read!

    My Grandad used to love brushing my hair when I was a little girl. He would always do it when me and my brother went to stay at his house. My Grandmother would beg him to let her do it, but he always insisted it was his job. I loved that time with him. I would never admit this in public, but I miss those days.

    I bet your daughter will miss those days when she is a grownup too.

    The last time I had someone brush my hair (besides stylists) was when I was very small. Mum was brushing it and hit a snag and I hit her. She calmly removed the brush and I was taken to meet a lady with a scissors. Your girls will have sweeter memories!

    That is just so cute! I can totally relate to what you mean about brushing hair. When I’m brushing my daughter’s hair, I keep thinking “is this little girl really all mine?” Kids are such a blessing and it’s great that you are getting to to enjoy this wonderful stage in life 🙂

    I loved this is was soo sweet. My daughter has very fine hair and we had years where it was painful to brush and we eventually heard about a special brush which did the trick.
    On the comic side of brushing, we went to the Royal Sydney Easter Show this week and they were judging Best Dog in Show and we saw the winner posing for photos. It was constantly being brushed it was quite intriguing. Your daughter might enjoy looking at all the dog photos. You can’t half tell I love dogs but I was pho
    bic as a child. Take care and have a great weekend. Best wishes, Rowena
