You need to just set up a video camera in a corner and record all the fun! Beats the heck out of most vacation trip videos for me! LOL

Yesterday's practice hairdoo.... Maybe I can bribe her into letting me do that today for school!!
Absolutely gorgeous hen!! Love the gray fluffy butt! Your daughter has beautiful hair! So glad to see she is OK with it being long, there are a ton of ways to braid long hair (and this comes from a long haired red head who can braid her own different for about every day of the week! LOL)
Don't you EVER let her dye it! I lived through the teasing for the red hair my whole childhood, but never gave in and never dyed it.... I know a young girl who did dye hers and it was just horrible dry and broken from then on...

I never heard of that... will have to give it a try... do you have to slice the skin over the area first for it to work or does it draw it through the thick skin (I kinda have a lot of callouses)
Anne... I used a black salve when I was a kid, it would work as long as I cut an X over the top of the splinter area first with a razor, but it wouldn't draw it out through otherwise.... and really deep ones just had to beal out over time though.

Love this!!! And you can't imagine how often I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying..."You called and ambulance for THIS??? I wouldn't even go to the hospital for that, let alone call an ambulance!!! The USA has become a nation of 75% wusses!
