The sock trick is just grabbing some socks, rolling them up in sections of hair and tying them in a knot.
Simple except that it takes some tweaking with different hair types depending on how curly you want it. Grace's hair is SUPER thick but still does well when I put socks in when it's still pretty damp from the tub. Claire's super thin hair needs to be almost dry when I put the socks in to make it work.
I'm just saying, maybe don't plan your family photo shoot the morning after the first try...you could end up with a super straggly frizz ball in place of your daughter's head depending on the hair type.
And start with the sock next to the head and then twist the hair around it so the top of the hair gets some good curl...does that make sense? I usually do four socks per head.
There you go.
And, I'm repenting for complaining about early church.
I mean, if we didn't have it at eight, how could we leisurely fit in two other ward conferences (stake primary stuff), serious cooking together with the girls (chicken cordon bleu and a new brownie recipe for dessert),...and basking in the fact that three of my girls suddenly love peppers. All my hard work has totally paid off.
That one back there in the back...still not a pepper lover...but it's coming. Next we're on to tricking them into liking brussel sprouts. (I kid about that one. Yuck.)
Lucy & Claire even had time for a "book club camp out:" We also soaked up a freshly returned Dave from a week in China. He and Max weren't complaining about being done with church in time to "check some scores" on some significant football.
So, maybe 8 o'clock church isn't so bad after all...until next Sunday morning when I'm sure I'll be ready for some more grumbling...
