I’m knot the only one . . .

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Tv Talk -

My daugh­ter Amara, six, has beau­ti­ful, waist-length black hair. And while it’s much ad­mired, it is cre­at­ing a wedge be­tween us.

Ev­ery morn­ing she holds her head while I grasp the de­tan­gler brush (we’re on the sixth type, be­cause none of them works) and strug­gle to get all the knots out.

She screams and squirms and I yell at her to keep still and fi­nally, af­ter what feels like an eter­nity of tug­ging the knots are out.

The other day in the gym I over­heard a lit­tle girl say: “You are so gen­tle with my hair, my mummy re­ally pulls it.” Nice to know I’m not the only “knot buster” in town.
