Teenagers....you gotta love them.
I'm sure that many of us have been there....you know their choice of style in clothing, hobbies, girls, hair long short coloured or whether this week they might even be vegetarian or vegan. Maybe high protein or low carb diets or if working out at the gym it may be low protein high carb.
I mean really each week or month a different challenge is thrown at us as parents.
So this week in my house hold my 14 year old son has decided that he wants dreadlocks.
I'm all for them expressing themselves showing their individuality etc but I'm not willing to fork out $400 or so for someone to matt up his hair.
So I took my sons gorgeous strawberry blonde locks,
after much research on the net
Sectioned his hair
Matted his hair with much back combing
and matted some more
until we had a head full of dreads..mind you he is as pleased as punch.
Me on the other hand.....lets just say it's phase..right...please... just humour me and say it's a phase!
They will eventually drop and sit like normal dreads but for now he will look a little like an Echidna
Just a quick glimpse of some burp bibs that I made 16 to be exact.
I even got to use my hand made labels.
A look at our beautiful sky tonight.
