Last week at the pool Emily threw one of those awful hungry tired totally out of control mama throwing things into a bag not even caring if you have everything tantrums. The only reason I escaped with my shoes is because a friend brought them out to the parking lot for me. Once we got home I put her down for a nap, left the kids at home with a working from home Daddy, and went shopping. While out I got Emily one of those fold over elastic hair ties. Honestly, I'd put it off till now bc I thought they were silly but we've been having a hard time with hair lately so I decided to buy one. Turns out the thing works great. Like instead of cutting out hair bows while she fusses I just take the thing out. That said I refuse to buy more of them so I pulled out some left over bits of fold over elastic and made a few. I just cut them about 8in long tied knots in the ends then put a bit of fray check on them. One day I will buy some more pretty elastic and make more but for now here's what we have.
