Just have to share this - we WASHED HER HAIR!!!
It was a hot sticky day, she was covered in sun screen and really sweaty - so I decided it *had* to be done. This is what we did:
1. To get it all wet - she washed my hair too and we alternated getting eachothers' hair wet in the bath.
2. Then I got her to rub in the shampoo herself (she likes that bit as it's all bubbly and if you rub hard enough little bubbles fly around in the air
3. Then we had a complete meltdown when she realised that I was going to have to wash the shampoo off - but I picked her up and cuddled her (both naked
) and filled the sink with lovely warm water and gently washed it off in the sink, holding her so that she couldn't look anwhere else but at the ceiling. She was wailing througout that she "didn't like it" but had to admit at the end that no water had gone in her eyes.
4. Followed by much dancing around the house telling her she was really brave and how nice and clean her hair was...
Now I wonder how long till we manage to do it again?!!
