The Stylist

While visiting with Lily and her mama last Spring, I was surprised by how adept little Lily was at hairstyling. She often disapproved of her mother's ability to do her own hair and felt she had to take matters into her own hands to get her mother's hair in shape.

Lily may have been a little too heavy handed with the brush, as her mama wiped more than a few tears away while gritting her teeth to endure a styling session.

And, when her mama did not hold as still as her little stylist thought she should, a little scolding by Lily went a long way into getting her "client" to hold still.

But, mostly there were big smiles and, of course, the happiness that came with the ending of each styling session.
