Domestic Help

One of my conversations this morning:

me: You need to comb your hair every day so you don't get all these tangles.

mi-mi (running her hand over the back of her hair with an "I-know-mom" tone): I can _feel_ the tangles.

I give her the brush and she brushes her own hair.

mi-mi: you didn't get the tangles out!

me: I thought it hurt too much so I want you to do it.

mi-mi (brushing her hair): it does hurt.

me: do you want to do it yourself or would you like me to continue.

mi-mi: I want you to continue.

I "continue" to brush her hair.

mi-mi: and don't forget my bangs.
