On-the-job Training, Pt. 1

Before giving birth to Playette, I wasn't what anyone would consider a master hairdresser. I was blessed with a full head of the stuff and have always struggled to keep it in a manageable state. Currently, never letting it get longer than 1/2 an inch is my method of choice.

I've talked before about the 15-30 minute per day struggle that is combing Playette's hair. As well as what it looks like when I don't.

I came across these recent photos and found the expressions on her face simply classic.

Don't worry. No toddlers were harmed in the creation of these photos. Which were taken in an airport. Because I was desperate.

During:

After:

(I didn't even get to the back. But at least my cornrows are improving!)

Malea is too funny! Hats off to you for doing all that to a two year old. I'm cringing even thinking about it. Gabby is hard enough with her one little side pony. lol
