For those of you who know me IRL, you know that I 'prefer' shorter hair. It's not that I don't like long hair, I just don't hold it in high regard. It may have something to do with my mother. I'm not sure. Just saying. (sorry mom. HAD to put that in!!)
I have never wanted my daughters' hair to be long. (once again, personal preference). In fact, I cut both girls short until they start to ask for longer hair. Then I abide, as long as there is no hair in the eyes. ( oh no! I AM my mother.) I also encourage selecting whatever 'style' of hair is wanted. -which often results in one braid, and one pigtail. Or something of the sort.
My friend Karen, whose 4yr old daughter has GORGEOUS LONG hair!!, had a 'situation'. Kira decided to shorn some locks. Albeit disheartening for Karen (who, I think, has never cut Kiras hair), I have to admit I chuckled at the 'small' (to me) amount of hair that was lost. (sorry Karen--still friends??)
She COULD have pulled a "Hannah"!!
Now THAT'S what I call a haircut!!
