Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let your hair down...!

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!!

Oh my goodness Amy!!!! Hannah did quite a number on her bangs?? I am in stitches, those pictures are hilarious! Are you sure it was scissors she used and not Daddys shaver??

Up until now I had never cut Kira's hair. I was going to wait till we returned to Canada before doing anything. However, my ambitious hairdresser will now be sporting some lovely bangs. I am sooo thankful that she did not tackle the back of the head. Yah, you are right,it is only hair. By the way, you should see how long Calia's has grown.

I love a little short bob on toddlers and little girls!! -Probably because that is exactly the style our little girl had when she was a little one! :)

Funny post today Amy!!

I think you have something with this "mom" factor. Mine uses clippers to cut her hair. Any chance your mom is a nurse... I find they HATE hair and pass the gene down.
