She doesn't :P
She sits as still as a patient 2 year old can. I say patient because she does sit a little more still than I'd imagine others probably do. DS NEVER would've lol.
It started in the bathroom when she only had a TINY tuft at the top. Give her a toothbrush and she'd sit still for quite a bit (course, then I was only doing a single pony at the top).
That one still pretty much works. She'll brush her teeth for a good amount of time.
The newest one (and you can see it in the pictures) is rubber bands. She puts them all on her finger. Until the whole thing is covered. She also likes to dump out my hair basket with all my supplies. She ALSO enjoys using the water bottle to spray my feet, the carpet, her face, her brother..etc. That one really does keep her entertained. The TV is also on..I now style in our family room because I can sit on the couch and she can sit on the floor and mess around with the basket or water bottle and watch tv.
Watch them with the rubber bands tho. This last time she got them on really tight somehow and her finger started to turn colors. EEP. She hasn't done it much since..not sure if it's because I flipped out trying to get them off fast or if it tingled too much when the blood went back in LOL.
OH and sorting the bands! If you have a bunch of colored bands and an organizer (even a medicine organizer..the kind that says mon/tue/wed/thur/fri/sat/sun..ya know?) they can sort the colors for you and 'be your big helper'. She likes feeling important and like she's helping. You can also ask for her to hand you a band, a bow, a comb, hairspray, whatever. Even if you don't need it ;) She'll probably be more than happy to 'assist'.
haha Yeah Sophia drinks out of it too! I have to watch her with the hairspray because of it. Could you imagine that flavor? Yuck.
TF Says: I sit mine in front of the TV.....she's done it since her first pony at 6 months, and still now at 3!!
Dude, 6 months?! Lucky duck ;)
We get cheap, clear chapstick and she gets to put it on while I do her hair. She loves it. Especially since its really the only time she gets to use it.
She could sit there for twenty minutes while applying chapstick over and over and over...
Shelli Says: A dry erase marker is lots of fun on the mirror and will wipe right off when you are finished. That will entertain my daughter for a while!
Ok now that I NEVER would've thought of!
If anyone else has some good hints, let me know and I'll post those too!
