I was sitting at my table Friday organizing notes from home, stickers for children, activities for morning centers, etc., all the while listening to Lateesha telling me how her mother had taken her to her beauty shop and had her hair done. (She’s a gorgeous little girl, and her hair was spectacular….)
Johnny came running up to me to tell me a story, when he stopped short and looked at Lateesha. He looked very closely at her very intricate and beautiful cornrows – and then turned to me.
“Wait, is it crazy hair day???? Nobody told me!”
I’ve decided Monday’s lesson will be on tact. I’ll call it “How to get a prom date in three easy steps.”
