After months of tiresome nagging, I strike a deal with this girl:
If you promise to leave a barrette in your hair all day long, I won’t bug you about getting your hair cut for a whole month.
Her eyes light up. It’s a deal!
To my amazement…she succeeds! It’s the first time in her entire life that she manages to keep a barrette in her hair all day long. Turns out, it will probably also be the last day she ever manages the feat.
