I've read about them, I've seen pictures of them, I've sympathized and empathized about them....and now I have one.
I was enjoying my Saturday afternoon watching TV, eating halloween candy and running my fingers through my hair. All of a sudden I feel a big knot in the middle of one of my baby locs. I yelled, "What is this?" (I really did). I had my roommate come and look at it, ran to the mirror and there was a big knot, bunch, bump or whatever you call it, just sitting there. I checked out every single baby for another one and that was the only one I found.....at first. It's about the size of a little pea and it's hard. I can only relate this experience to the first time you feel your baby kick when you're pregnant. I was so excited. Thanks to the blogs and sisterlock group I know, I believe I know what's going on. I'm progressing the way I'm supposed to. The information/education I've received is invaluable. I know that this is just part of the process of locking.......................right?
Two days later...I found a few more smaller little knots in the very back of my head, closer to the scalp. Oh well.....just another phase.
