Beat the Clock - Update

Hair dye is on, both girls cried in the middle of nap. I let them go and they went back to sleep. 35 minutes of guaranteed naptime left - after that it's a crapshoot.

You know, I'd like to use this blog to share little nuggets of wisdom that I learn while on this mothering journey. Today I learned two very valuable lessons for other people that dye their hair at home.

  1. You should have paper towels handy BEFORE you start dye-ing your hair. It's very hard to run around frantically looking for paper towels while being quiet and trying to keep hair dye from dripping.
  2. Also, if your baby naps best in a portable crib in your bathroom/closet area and hence you cannot go in there during naptime, you may want to get out the rubbing alcohol BEFORE she goes down to nap and BEFORE you dye your hair. Otherwise, you may have to resort to using lysol cleaner on a paper towel to get the hair dye drips off your face.

Just my little bit of sharing for the day.

I'm still laughing about this - long after I read it the first time.

I often feel the same way about your posts too - still laughing days later!
