Yarn Braids!

The Angel had been driving me nuts to try a new hairstyle for her.
Monday afternoon, I found a YouTube video on yarn braids.
I had my doubts on my abilities and since we knew from the video that the process would take at least 4-5 hours, we thought we'd give us a learning curve at shoot for being done in 6.
We made each other two promises:
1.) The Angel could complain every 20 minutes.
2.) Mommy got scream "Uncle" when enough was enough.
Monday night we went for a solid four hours.
Mommy screamed "Uncle" at 10:00p.m.
And with one-half of her hair braided, we headed for bed.
But last night, we finished and while Mommy knew practice would make better,
The Angel was THRILLED!
She's been swinging her long hair from side to side every time I catch her standing still.
And Mommy is praying that the estimation of the braids lasting 4-6 weeks
is completely accurate!

God bless you and your family. You'll gain more skill with the braids as time goes on. Be sure to watch some of the videos about how to wash and moisturize them. You might consider taking down a section at a time and replacing them as part of a weekly hair care routine.
