Most of the time, the cast is no problem.
Every once in a while, having a big, clonky, angled appendage is an issue. Not being able to get the bulky thing wet is more of an issue.
Brianna snapped some pictures last time I washed Katie's hair, and they made me laugh, so I thought I would share them.
Katie loves the water, and having me stick her in, head first, surprisingly doesn't bother her a bit. This is actually going to be Luke's bath water when I'm done doing her hair. Please don't think I'd waste all this water just to do her head.
Once her hair is wet, we add shampoo.
And make crazy hair sculptures, of course.
Before you know it, it's time for the rinse cycle. Again, most kids would be screaming bloody murder, but Katie doesn't mind. I also flip her over and use a cup to pour water over her neck. Amazing how little kids get "toe jam of the neck."
Perfect! One beautiful girl with clean hair AND a dry cast.
