I’m an old school momma so Nana’s hair is either in braids or ponytails. If she has in ponytails, then she typically has balls on her ponytail holders and barrettes on the ends.
After we had our first visit with Nana, I couldn’t wait to buy ALL the hair accessories. I stocked up with all colors, pastels, primary, it didn’t matter. I bought large and small ponytail holders in every color. I bought all the good rubber bands. One our good friends sent a Kaboodle with some additional accessories. It was perfect. Just what I needed to keep everything together.
But somehow over the past six months, my supply of accessories has been dwindling. I am now down to about 20 barrettes (in the worst colors) and I have no idea how this is happening.
The barrettes are on Nana’s head when she comes home but somehow they aren’t quite making it back to the Kaboodle. If I didn’t know better, I would guess that Wood is secretly tossing them. I’ve even ransacked Nana’s room thinking she might be squirreling them away. Nothing.
*shrug* It’s a mystery. They are probably hanging out with the missing socks from the laundry.
Now this wouldn’t necessarily be a problem since the barrettes and beads were pretty cheap, but I just can’t find them in my neighborhood. I have to make a trek over to the other side of town to find a beauty supply store. I have tried Target, Walgreens, Walmart, Sallie’s Beauty Supply and even the Dollar Tree on my side of town and no bueno.
So until then, Nana will just have to make do with a head full of mix-matched colors.
