(adj.) Invincible

Here's something you probably don't know about me...I suck at definitions. Like, royally.

Example: Ask me what "royally" means...and I say something like, "Um,'s the people that are really important, well, maybe not so much important as, um, well. I dunno. It's Will and Kate. There, how's that?"

So, when we were road tripping to somewhere or other (like, say, WalMart) this song by Steel Magnolia came on the radio and I was singing along with all the gusto I could muster. After the line, "You take off your halo, I'll take off my wings, you don't have to be invincible...", Belle pipes up, "inVISIBLE" with all the disgust her 9 years on this earth could provide her with.

Me: "No, Belle, actually, it IS inVINCIBLE."

She: "Huh?"

Me: "Invincible. It means. Um. Well...okay, it means you're um...okay, um...OH! Okay, so you know when you're playing Super Mario Brothers and you get a star and nothing can hurt you?"

She: "Yeah?!"

Me: "THAT'S invincible!"

She: "Oh! Okay!!"

And that, my friends, is using technology to your advantage. Thank you, Nintendo, for providing this definitionally challenged mother with an answer her children could understand.

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
