An irregular Shirley Temple

Kate has been mildly obsessed with Shirley Temple lately. She loves Shirley's music, yes. But mostly, Kate covets Shirley's hair. There's just one problem: Kate's hair is straight. Bone straight. A curling iron does nothing to it, so we tried our hand at sponge curlers. 

When I was a little girl, sponge curlers were a right of passage. And they made my hair curl as tight as a spring for days. We bathed. We sprayed. We rolled. We waited. 

And in the morning...ta da! 

We were a little disappointed, but not deterred. 

That night, we tried again. We bathed. We MOUSSED. We rolled (in smaller rollers). We waited. 

And this morning, I think the smile speaks for itself, but...we were rewarded.
