Straight Hair Vs. Curly Hair


Both of my girls are SO different in terms of looks and personality. The picture of Hafsah is right after she got her first haircut; her hair is so thick, dark, straight, and shiny. Madina, on the other hand, has never had a haircut so far, has very thin, slightly dry, lighter, and curly hair.

As for personality, Hafsah thrives on structure and rules, is a perfectionist at both at home and at school, and will ask for my permission before she does anything. However, Madina likes to follow her OWN rules, and goes by her OWN schedule, and she won’t ask for my permission before doing anything – she’ll just go ahead and do it! It will be interesting to see how she performs at school.

No matter what, I love both of my girls equally and with the same exact love. I embrace their differences and encourage them to be their unique selves. I love to see their personalities shine through their everyday actions and I’m excited to see them grow even further. © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)

A few months ago, Madina fell down and got a huge bump on her lip! Through her tears, she asked if I could take her to see the doctor’s and if I could give her medicine right away. I told her that I would take her to the doctor’s if the swelling on her lip didn’t go down, and for now we would just put ice on her lips. A few hours later, she was feeling much better, and requested to go to the library. I agreed to take her and instructed her to put her shoes on. She then asked, “mama, can I take my bump with me?” Yes, she was referring to the bump on her lip! Continue reading
