rorychvc CRAZY HAIR DAY at science camp today and my daughter's biggest complaint is, "It's not crazy ENOUGH!" (The style was easily achieved by wrapping box braids around pipe cleaners.) #crazyhairday #teamboo #chocolatehairvanillacare #fauxhawk #naturalhair #teamnatural 2d
  •   katielmohr "Easily achieved" she says... 2d
  •   rorychvc @zaq1976 it was merely a matter of wrapping/twisting the braid around the pipe cleaner, shaping the arc, and then wrapping the next braid around the pipe cleaner (wrapping over the ends of the first braid to secure it). can't shoot photos because i need both my hands to do this without them unravelling... 2d
  •   rorychvc @katielmohr 😛 2d
  •   lovealways216 Creative! Nice! 2d
  •   lynsno So beautiful! 2d
  •   karaalmindez This is soooooo cool ... this 16h

rorychvc A nearly 2-yr-old Boo showing off her tough-girl Bantu knots at the park in 2009. #tbt #teamboo #teambabyboo #chocolatehairvanillacare #bantuknots #naturalhair 3w
  •   mrshollylacey @rorychvc thank you! I just watched a great tutorial with the thread and needed on your site. One thing I didn't see was what product you had in her hair before you started. Her hair looks dry, is this correct? So I'm assuming her hair is clean and you put your oils and conditioner in it and then let it dry before starting... 3w
  •   rorychvc @mrshollylacey this photo is of regular bantu knots, not the threaded ones. and how we use and layer products varies from style to stle. however i always style on damp hair, as mentioned on our blog. 3w
  •   enjoycooking101 TOO CUTE !!! 3w
  •   mrshollylacey @rorychvc thanks!! I'm still new to this all and live in a very rural town so your blog has been helpful. My husband and I are going to try the threaded Bantu knots this weekend :) hoping with two of us she'll sit still long enough. 3w
  •   oluposh @rorychvc which hairstyles would you recommend for my 7 months old baby. Her hair is long so combing out is getting increasingly difficult. 3w
  •   rorychvc @oluposh box twist or braids would be perfect. 3w
  •   oluposh Thank you @rorychvc 3w

rorychvc Another one of those times when she's being really quiet and I discover she's working on something awesome: Today she removed the seeds from a dead snapdragon and is planting them in a new pot. Not sure where she got the pot. Or the soil. But she gets a thumbs-up for initiative, that's for sure! #teamboo #summervacation #gardening 3w

rorychvc Inspired by the poetry of Mattie J.T. Stepanek (his poetry is a must-read for kids and adults alike), Boo penned her first poem today. Summer vacation is off to a GREAT start! #teamboo #kidspoetry #poem #summervacation #creativity 4w
  •   raccooneyed Awesome poem! Hopefully a writer in the making :) 4w
  •   sonya94544 She is so creative. 4w
  •   evolution_of_a_queen I grew to love poetry at a young age and now i love to write because of it so i hope she discovers her gift and crafts it #poeticmother 3w

rorychvc She thought the doll's skirt was too short so she coloured in rainbow tights because, "That's what we fashion designers do." #teamboo #makeitwork #summerfun #summervacation #crafts 1mon

rorychvc Boo was SO excited about finding a "fairy-sized" flower in our yard...I didn't have the heart to tell her it was just a weed. She's currently brainstorming ideas for making a mini vase. #teamboo #chocolatehairvanillacare #imagination #fairies #creativity #smallchildrenbigdreams 1mon
