Peach Head

Or Fuzzy Wuzzy is what my son calls my hair. He really likes to run his little hands through it and laugh and giggle. He and my daughter also comment on the fact that all of my locs are not the same size or length and question if I'm going to fix it. I just smile and tell them no. I'm going through the fuzzy stage. Not really sure when it started but noticed it a couple of weeks ago. This is good news and means that my locs are coming along nicely and losing the braid pattern. I'm not really even concerned about that as much as I was in the beginning. I often now even forget to latch and have to count back when the last time I did a latching. Is life moving along so fast? I don't think so, I've got so many plates spinning that hair is really the last thing on my mind. Which is why I haven't blogged much about it. However I will get back on track and post new hairstyles and concerns that I have so don't fret!

Our Blended Family

Totally off the subject of hair for a moment. I had to post this, especially after watching the Duggers. Which is a family that lives in Arkansas and they couple have 20 children and counting...which means they have no intentions of not having more children. Most people would be outraged or appalled that a couple would choose to have so many children, however Psalm 127:3says Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. My husband and I have 7 children, five of them came with the package deal and the youngest were recently added. I cannot imagine my life without them. They are truly blessings and it's a privilege to raise them righteously and in the teachings of the Lord. 5 boys and 2 girls and Lord willing when our income increases significantly I wouldn't mind having another one. I honestly believe as long as you can take care of them you should have as many children as you want and I'm grateful to live in a country where this is not dictated by the government. Again not hair related but I had to mention it...Here's a link of the Duggers
