I finally figured out how to create separate albums! I said I needed a 12 year old. Does the fact that I sometimes have the humour of a 12 year old boy count?

BF has a birthday coming up soon and YD decided to make her a collage of some photos from our trip. I saw one with the two of them together and it reminded me of our morning routine. They don't want me to post any pics of them, so I had to pinch this one from Google.

Every morning I would braid their bangs like this. The braid would stay in for 2 days so we alternated days...BF one day and YD the next.

First, we'd eat breakfast and do the dishes. Then I'd do a braid and, while the girls were getting ready for the day, I'd sweep the floor.

I couldn't believe how much sand would blow in. Our big windows face the beach (from which came most of the breezes) and we left them open most of the time. Sweeping the entire condo daily was a necessity.


  1. Hi Barb,
    Congratulations on conquering the album trick. Love the braids - sounds like a relaxing rhythm to the days, braiding and sweeping and braiding and sweeping.

  2. Debbie, I was so excited when it worked. I hope I can duplicate it in the

    Thanks for the compliment. Those braids are so quick and easy and keep the hair off the face, with style, a must-have for most They're perfect for holidays.
