I have many talents. But I’m decidedly untalented in being a girl. I’ve never really been interested my own hair, makeup or clothing. I do love other typically girl-y things such as celebrity gossip and celebrity clothing but I haven’t really had the chance to keep up with all that recently. And I do like boys which is a typical girl thing.
But back to hair. Nat’s on vacaction for a few days this week and next, so I’m doing the usual morning/afternoon childcare duties. I’m not as good at it as my caregivers, but what the hell? Let’s just go ahead and try it out. I delved into the huge selection of hair styling how-to videos on youtube. Ten thousand teenage girls trying to teach me how to french braid.
Day 1: Attempt at hairband french braid:
Not so bad, a few flyaways and that weird loop over her ear. The am bus driver even complimented me on my attempt…
Day 2: My own design. I think this looks more engineered than beautiful. It’s attractive the same way a nondescript bridge is attractive – attractive because it’s functional and is holding the bridge up while I’m driving my family over it.
Ready for school! Boo ya!
