know how to french braid...

Now that our girls hair has been getting LONG & most especially having their bangs cover their eyes I have begun my latest mission of learning how to braid. I think when you have daughters it's your duty to learn how to braid. Now I know how to do a simple braid on a ponytail it's the fancier "french" braid I need to conquer! When I was little, heck up until about 5 years ago my mom would braid my hair. I could never braid my own hair, not for trying trust me! One time my own brother braided my hair! Yes even I was AMAZED! It was nothing elaborate but a braid to say the least! Do not know where he learned how but he did! SO I figure if they can braid I need to learn how to do it too! Sad thing is that I really thought it would be old hat by now since not too long ago I inherited a Barbie styling head. I wanted one SO bad so I could practice, practice, practice! But finding the time for me to study up did not happen so here I am using my daughters heads for practice. It has been ALL trial by error here. Some days I think I do pretty good and they allot me the patience to sit in my "chair", other days it is just pure HELL! There's screaming & even tears rolling down their face like I'm torturing them! Oh what I wouldn't give to just...
