This morning when I dropped my baby girl off to school she had 2 afro puffs on her head. When I picked her up from school, she had some beautiful braids!
Her teacher had braided her hair in a matter of a few minutes and it looked so cute. The hair thing has always been an issue - should we relax it? Should we braid? I tried braiding before and it always ended up looking like a cross between Snoop Dogg and Pippy Longstocking. And another of Emi's friend's mother had told me that when braiding her hair we'd need to add artificial hair to lengthen it. Not so. I did find out the only thing I was doing different was braiding OVER and Emi's teacher braided her hair UNDER and it didn't end up sticking up!
