big accomplishment

This morning mommy tackled her first non-afro hairstyle. Previously the neighbors had braided Patience's hair, and mommy fixed a few braids as they came loose. This hairstyle is 100% mommy's handiwork for better or worse. Not including breaks, it took between 1 and 1.5 hours, but that's not too bad for a first try at box twists on a squirmy little one. It's so hard to style her soft, short hair. There is much room for improvement, but it's not too bad (if I do say so myself).

Trisha, are you nuts? I don't even do my own hair! In fact, these days I sometimes don't even shower.
