I don’t know how your mornings go but for us it goes something like this:
1. Eat breakfast.
2. Lots of little laughs.
3. A few episodes of Go, Diego, Go!
4. Get dressed.
5. Cue the all out, drop down, crazy screaming battle when I try to brush and style Zelda’s hair.
Zelda doesn’t get fussy about much, except for when it comes to her hair. After watching countless crocodile tears run down her face, I decided I had to solve this problem. I want her to enjoy doing her hair as much as I did when I was a little girl. The tears usually start to fall the moment I pull out her hairbrush, so I went on a quest to find her something magical. After a ton of testing, I think I finally found the one – the Goody Ouchless Brush. It looks like a regular hairbrush but glides through her hair smoothly and has cut her tears in half, which is a major accomplishment.
We all have Goody hair memories from childhood and my most treasured recollection is carrying my Goody hairbrush in my backpack. When I was younger, I was taught that I needed to brush one hundred strokes per day. I was never told why — I think it was probably because my parents just really wanted me to brush my hair (and it made me feel beautiful, so that was a plus). I carried my hairbrush everywhere I went.
I wasn’t allowed to share my hairbrush with anyone else at school because of the dreaded four letter word (LICE!). I never forgot my hairbrush and even if it meant running back up the hill from the bus stop, I always had it with me. It’s the only thing I would ever run up the hill for – I certainly wasn’t running up the hill to grab any forgotten homework.
I love that I am passing Goody onto Zelda and someday she will have these treasured memories. It’s funny how these things never really change, when something is good it is good. Which means I have to ask you, what’s your Goody memory?
