Sally Jane is a month shy of being three and has never had her hair cut. We have never had a girl with hair of gold or little locks. I have been the only one that has wanted to cut it for the past 6 months, I always get talked out of it by dad and Annie kate.
But this morning trying to comb through the thin, tangled baby hair that has been on that head for almost three years had to go.
I was thinking of taking her to The Yellow Balloon, a kids salon on main street, dressing her up to get some cute photo ops of her getting her first hair cut - then I thought I would save myself the $18.00 (is that a crime!) and hour of my time. I sat her on my bed, got the $6.99 hair scissors I keep hidden in my running clothes drawer and while she was watching t.v. I went snip, snip.
Having curly hair makes home cutting very forgiving.
I didn't even take a photo before I cut the 5 inches off. She was so excited to carry around her hair in a baggy all morning.
Annie Kate came home from school while I was taking the photos of Sally Jane and she said, "What have you done?" she is so sad and was holding on the golden locks like they were alive. Holy smokes! I say it is just hair it will grow back and since I am the one who is lucky enough to comb it every morning I feel I get to make the decision to cut it.
so now I hope I will have less screaming in the mornings.
**one of the best ideas I got from my friend Liz who took photos of her little girl with all of her baby dolls. I loved it so much I had Sally Jane's Christmas photo taken with her two "Sunny Sunny" bears that go everywhere with her. she is obsessed with the color yellow.
