Ducklings In A Row - Hair + DIY Tutorials: Hair Tutorial: The Stay-Put Braided Headband. When I was ten years old I spent an entire summer teaching myself how to french braid my own hair and how to do a handstand.

No matter how many pins I used it always poufed up away from my head. I finally got wise a started doing it this way. This tutorial isn't a french braid, but anyone who knows how to do a french braid will find the steps for this stay-put version of the popular braided headband familiar.

Without getting into too many details-the baby is going to be a little longer than we thought.

Suddenly, the weirdest things pop on to our 'to do' lists, and become oddly important. And the tasks seem to grow weirder and weirder with each baby. Right before I had Reuben, for some reason, I decided that my living room futon needed a new cover. Not great timing, but not so strange. Before I had Zeke, I needed to get all my Christmas cards done early-not just written, that wasn't good enough. My mom also contributes to this fun little routine-I think that she nests right along with us. That, and that's what her Mom always did to "help". Well, maybe not stranger than the salad dressing. Mom had suddenly decided that it was time to pair my family's odd socks. 25 Cool Ideas To Display Family Photos On Your Walls.
