I Need More Arms

I finally got my laptop back (my husband had it the past few days) and I have a few things to catch up on.
My little girl is getting bigger and her crazy mane has reached braiding length. I've never been much good at doing hair, so this is a new experience (and therefore project) for me.
Here is my best "first day" effort.

As you can see, it's a little wonky.
About ten minutes after this was taken, most of it had out and was messier then ever.
It seems that in order to be a successful braider of hair, I need to become ambidextrous, grow an extra set of arms and invent a product that will immobilize my daughter for ten minutes.
Or I can just practice.
This was my next effort.
Not nearly tight enough. It was a disaster in two minutes.
Someday I'll post that picture!


Jamie said...'re funny! It looked cute, even if it only lasted for a few minutes :-) I can hardly manage to get pigtails in Ellie's hair before she's diving off my lap, I can't imagine trying to do braids!

Wonky? You said "wonky"?? Hahaha!
They looked pretty great for the first tries. Brynnie certainly looked proud of herself. :)

Yes, Brynn looked like she LOVED what her momma did for her :)

With lots of short hair in different lengths I used to put a section in an elastic and then continue on sort of like a French braid except with elastics. They keep it all together more than a braid does.
