When your hair first began to grow,
and I spotted those sweet little curls,
I couldn't help but be excited.
(I've always wanted natural curls!)
How wonderful it was to have a precious little curly-haired baby doll of my very own!
Quickly, your tiny little swirls of hair
transformed into ringlets,
and they grew and grew
until you had a headful of long curly locks.
Just before your third birthday,
I had your pretty hair trimmed,
and so we said farewell to the ringlets.
I've cut it twice more since then,
and while your little curls are still hanging in there,
I'm not sure if they'll last forever.
I just want you to know:
no matter how your hair changes,
You'll always be beautiful to me.
BUT while you've got those curls,
you should definitely flaunt them, sweet boy.
**Just a little word of advice:
I love you, Curly Q!
