More Happy Days

On my last posting I mentioned about how I got together with friends and family in the bay area. Well, here are more happy moments. My sister's and I got together to take out my youngest sister, aka "Helga", out for her thirty something year old birthday. Boy did we have fun!

We went to the "Havana" a Cuban restaurant in the Walnut Creek area. Can you spot Helga? I was so impressed and encouraged to see how her locks had matured. She has had her's for almost 9 months. At first, she was so concerned about the thinness of her hair, but now has thickened up nicely. The three girls in the pictures are my nieces, and my son is sitting next to me. The lady in the back on the left side is my second oldest sister, Carol. We are working on her to get sisterlocks (-: The food was great, and I couldn't keep still hearing the Cuban music playing in the background. Great atmosophere.

(carol, ashley. and alyssa ("tweety"). This is my daughter Brittani. She was getting
her hair braided during the festivities. Any
hints on how I can get her to get sl's?

    You all look so fab and happy. Such beautiful children you all have. As for your daughter and SL's, she's probably now at that age where she has to want it for herself.

    The best thing you can probably do is be the best darn role model in Sisterlocks you can be and not force her to come along. Mentally -you have to want it for yourself. If not, you'll never be happy with them.

    Gently encourage her - remind her, in a non-pressuring way, of all the benefits SL's has to offer. I'll bet that as she sees your hair mature, she'll be more and more interested. Also, let her read the blogs of all the lovely locked ladies - She'll see that mom does know what she's talking about! In the meantime, you keep doing your thing, work it!

    We're so cute! You beat me to the post, but thanks for sharing. B looks stunning, but I agree, we've got to get her out of those braids. Tell her to look at some of my earlier posts about the braiding damage, that should frighten her! Naw, give her some time, I think she'll come around. More than anything, she needs to know how beautiful and valuable she is, regardless of what's on her head. C'ya soon ;-)

    Family and fun, the best times :)

    I say just keep enjoying your locks and as she sees how happy you are and how good you look she will not be able to resist (smile).
