Little miss came up to me late this morning with tears streaming down her cheeks. "What's wrong, sweets?" "Why is my hair curly? I don't want curly hair! I want it to be flat!" "Well... You have curly hair because I have curly hair." That explanation didn't seem to help. "Honey, I remember all too well how much I used to loathe my hair. You might as well accept it now and move on and save yourself a lot of time and energy. Now that it is warmer and more humid out, it's gonna curl. That's just how it is." "I have curly hair because you have curly hair?" "It certainly looks that way." "Well you can take it back." "I'll try my best." "Was your hair always curly?" "Yup."
"Great!" and she walks away with a disgusted look. She'll learn ;)
