Just ain't right.

No one told me being a mama meant I would have to learn how to put beads into an eight-year-olds hair because, and I quote, she "wants to be a pirate like Jack Sparrow."

Dude, beading hair is *rough.* (Remember I'm the one who has trouble talking and buttoning her shirt at the same time.)

The results, though? Pirate bandana hat with beaded dreads? Very cute. Particularly with the temporary tatts.

Okay, the beads, they are too cute. I remember when my daughter was a little girl and she liked ribbons and bows and pretty braids in her long fine blond hair and my fingers were just not used to such acrobatic maneuvers. So, my friend, who had no children but loved doing those things, would do the girly things to my daughter's hair and even go with us shopping for girly clothes. I thought jeans and t-shirts were perfectly fine. As she gets older, be prepared, because this little pirate girl is going to be a ribbon and bow girl, I know you aren't going to like it, but just open the door up and get ready because soon, and I mean soon, she will want lip gloss and a little blush and then she will want the rest of the stuff that goes with being a little girl growing into a young woman. The beads, they are a start. By the way, that little dress is so cute on her. I say buy twenty more in different colors.
