The Art of Braids...
OK...so the bottom line is I can't make braids as well as mommy can. "That's OK Daddy..."
It's true, my braid making ability is lacking, I've not the years of expereince self braiding my own hair for years as a child, teen and young adult, but does that mean that I can't learn?!
I have decided to become braid proficient. After all "Rapunzel has a long braid Daddy."
I wonder if Flynn had to become expert in the art of Braiding (she did cut her hair...heck...maybe THAT'S the real reason Flynn chopped it at the end. So that HE wouldn't have to learn the art of the braid and not to save he from Donna Murphy (who by the way for those of you who don't know her...is the farthest thing from that character. Just shows how brilliant she is as an actress.)
Ahhhh but I digress.
Naturally I have to start at the beginning and thus with the definition of "Braid."
