K has been fixated on her American Girl's hair... You would have to appreciate a BiPolar (BP) kid with sensory issues who is kind of shaky and no real focus at time to get the real picture. Which most of you can relate to. She has also been *doing* her own hair, which we have been encouraging, kind of. It looks like a rats nest that has tried to be fixed up a little. But she is so earnest in her attempts and tries so hard that I will at least try to get her to let me fix the clips in the front. It has been a ponytail in the back with 1 or 2 clips in the front. Anyway she has been trying to do her dolls hair. She wanted me to help her last night and I was cooking dinner. I had all of the stuff out for her, the little clips, rubber bands, water bottle, brush. She even has a little book of hair-dos. I kept running back and forth trying to show her, but could not use my hands. So I kept asking her to just wait until after dinner. Well, you know how that goes over. So husband comes out of his office and gets the book, I set them up with the picture and the rubberbands etc. She wanted to see and try to do a braid down the back of her head. husband has never done a braid!!! He tried 3 times... I finally walked over and talked him through it. HE DID IT!!! It looked really good. K just hugged her doll and looked goofy like she does when she is really happy, hugged Daddy and just sat there holding her doll until dinner. I thought it was so sweet!!! Of course this morning she once again came out looking like Helana Bonham-Carter in Sweeney Todd!!! But I love her originality!
