The day I could have....

......done without. It started out on the wrong foot to begin with. The girls were into everything. The moment I would turn around to grab something off a counter, Ava would spill a cup on the floor. I spent alot of time being anxious as well, just all the things that are going on right now with Robs gym has been stressful, it just all seemed to pile up on me yesterday.



Then it happened. The day I had hoped to never see. The moment I prayed would never come........


I sobbed as I saw the soft hair I used to run my fingers through when she was a little baby, the hair that I put up into a pony-tail when she was 2....all laying about me in a pile on the floor. To many it probably sounds silly, but it was truly horrible.


I called Rob up crying and he came right home so that I could take her up to the beauty salon to get her very first haircut. They did a pretty good job, as well as could be expected. She now has a very cute bob with layers in the back that the hair dresser assured me would grow out very well.

Truth be told I think she likes her new shorter hair. Sighh!

Today was better!

Hi Audrey, She looks cute. I had that happen to my now 3 year old, when she was two. My then 5yr son cut it with the scisors.

Oh, I dont even want to think about this happening to my sweet girl. I know it will but I am so not ready.

But, she does look beautiful.

We had this happen with both girls. Oe cut the bangs to the scalp, but the other scalped one side of her head and ended up with a cut like Tinkerbell! I still have baggies of hair in my dresser drawer. It is sad, but it grows out thicker and really nice. But I know it is a shock.

I'm sure the shock of it wasn't fun, but her new cut is adorable! Thanks for visiting my blog a couple weeks ago.:-)

Lovely girl, nice hair.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
