  1. Welcome to your first SOLSC, from a member of your Welcome Wagon! This is a perfect small moment Slice. I love the natural repetition of the curling iron motions; it adds a pleasing rhythm to your Slice. Looking forward to future posts!

  2. Welcome to SOLSC! Yes, I’m part of your ‘Welcome Wagon,’ too! There is such poetic symbolism in the repeated “careful not to burn the ends” – as our children grow, parenting involves this tense dance of letting go, letting them take responsibility, letting them make mistakes…it is so hard!! Loved this. Thank you!

  3. This slice rolled me in just as the curling iron wrapped around your hair. There’s something about the way we have to lighten up on the reigns as our kids get older that is so relatable here in your parenting conversation.

    Welcome to the SOLSC community.

  4. The symbolism, the repetition, the imagery- you truly have a way with words! I loved how a part of your morning routine and your relationship with your son naturally unfolded for us. Can’t wait to read more!
