Day Out With the Granddaughter

When my daughter got married, I was blessed with a bonus granddaughter.  As far as I'm concerned, Rahjae is my grand kid.  Last week she and I spent several hours together for some "girl time".

First, I took her to get her first haircut.  Yep, her first ever!  The girl is almost 13 years old and she's never stepped inside a salon.  Because she's biracial I couldn't have just any ole' person cutting her hair.  I found a gal at a local studio who was absolutely amazing.  Stylist was white girl but she knew her stuff!  It literally took 2.5 hours from beginning to end.  Because Rahjae's never had her hair cut before, it was a whole process from shampooing and conditioning and a full blowout to combing out all the rats and straightening the hair.  Then the cut took place.

Logan got drug into playing games with us.

I personally learned a lot about how to take care of biracial curly hair, and Rahjae walked away feeling like a whole new girl.  After that, we had Logan over to play UNO and then we treated ourselves to some Dairy Queen ice cream.

Simple memories, yet ones to treasure forever.

almost a teenager!

She is a beautiful girl. Your stylist did a great job with her first salon experience! Those are memories you and Rahjae will always have!

Lovely! I would not know what to do with biracial hair either. I don't even really know what to do with my own white girl hair....
