Here starts the journey! Mums with dreads.....
Dreads in the Family
Hi all. Just a quick one to share my excitement. I've started dreading. 7 down so far! I know it sounds crazy but I'm feeling different already. I know I am going to be faced with lots of disapproval from friends and especially family. As well as judgement from other mums who think dreadlocks are only for hippy kids not a 33 year old mother with 3 kids. It has taken 16 years to get the courage to dread my hair. Throughout that time I have tried and taken it out due to the worry of what others think and feel about me. I am now celebrating my freedom from the constraints of others opinions and judgements mostly due to my kids and my husbands support to be who I am and want to be. So I raise my glass to all the mums that chose to be who they are and the great kids and husbands, like mine, who support them. Better get back to the dreading! Xox
