Sponge Curlers

Remember those annoying sponge curlers Mom always made us sleep in but made our hair so cute! I remember one time on the Fourth of July, we were living in Texas and it was a Saturday. We went to a park to watch some fireworks, but since the next day was Sunday Mom put those pink sponge curlers in my hair and I hated it. I was going out to a public place where a ton of people were going to see me. I was maybe around 6 or 7 years old and I was certain being seen by other people with sponge curlers in my hair would ruin my life. So we get to the park and we're sitting around waiting for the show to start when a truck full of teenage girls drives by and I hear one of them say "Oh look! That girl is soooo cute with those curlers in her hair!" With all of her friends saying various things like "oh that is so cute" or "aww!" Needless to say after hearing that I thought I was the coolest kid at the park!

I don't make my kids go out in public places with sponge curlers, but I do make them sleep in them.

Now, here's what I'm thinking will happen. Amanda's hair is just too thin and too short to really have curlers stay in them and she's never really slept in them before. So she'll either have me take them out, or all but the top one or two will fall out leaving most of it very straight, but I couldn't leave her out or she would have thrown the world's biggest fit. Eden has slept with curlers in her hair before and what usually happens is the bottom half of the curlers fall out and the top ends up really really curly. I guess it's because her hair is always short. Now for Ashley, the problem isn't the curlers falling out. It's the hair not drying all the way. Even though I barely spritz it with water it never dries so her hair ends up looking... well... sometimes weird. So I'll post pictures later of how all their hair turned out.

I should get some for Mikayla's hair. Do you roll them with their hair wet or dry?
