Well I tried it ~ I put braids in Tess' hair. I've been to other blogs where the moms have got this hair thing down ~ I knew I wouldn't be one of those moms, not yet anyway. I have put it off because I just feel so inadequate in that area. I have a hard enough time doing my hair! She did pretty well ~ we watched a few episodes of Little Bill and Little Einsteins and I gave her some Legos & snacks to occupy her. My parts are not clean at all but I have a friend coming next week to show me some, as she put it, "things to make my life a little easier" so I'm looking forward to that! Until then I think I will leave these in for a couple of days.
