First let me begin by sharing with you that #1 I am new to the hair obsessed club and still learning from my "Hair Heroes" and #2 I am a working mom (who by the way is NOT a morning person!!!) I am finding that practice makes
perfect better. Meanwhile my girls and I are enjoying our time together and we invite you to join us on our journey. Sometimes we do fancy and sometimes we flop but for us it's the process.

So I’m beginning to get over the worst of the morning sickness, just barely. But today’s occasion called for me to do something fun. Today was “Crazy Hair Day” at school. On top of the morning sickness, I had a 7:00 a.m. staff meeting as well. Usually we don’t have to all be to school until 8:00 a.m.
Last night to prep, I sectioned my princess’s hair into ponytails all over her head. Then I threaded glittery gold pipe cleaners into the pony tails and braided them into the hair. I left the hair at the end to twist and hang with the ends of the pipe cleaners which I twisted into little spirals. Then she was off to bed. It took her a little while to find a comfortable position to sleep, but she finally managed it.
This morning her daddy brought her to school a little early. She and her sister arranged her braids and then I added a few flowers and an extra pipe cleaner. I stayed remarkably stiff all day!
Last night I divided Little Bird’s hair into pony tails all over her head. I wasn’t worried about being especially neat since I knew the girls would be sleeping on their hair. I wrapped her hair into loose bantu knots. This morning, I re-wrapped the knots and added flowers or pipe cleaners to many of the knots.
These days I can’t get caught up on perfect - but it sure was fun!
Question – what did I do for Crazy Hair Day??? I wore a hat! LOL, after all it was actually Crazy Hair/Hat Day.
Post Script: Both Girls won for their grade. They were very happy!
