Short hair

This is Lilian's bed head. Pretty bad, yes? Lilian, in normal 5-year old mode, doesn't really enjoy having her hair combed and done. Which means that not only is it a hassle each morning, but truth be told, some mornings...weekends especially, the hair doesn't really get done at all. It's been awhile since she'd had a trim so she was a head full of split ends and damaged strands. But beyond even that, a little over a year ago, she took a razor to the back of her head. (Remember this?) So she also has this weird section of hair that is shorter and thinner than the rest. Which makes for even more crazy knots when she wakes up in the morning.

So we finally just went and did this:
She was downright giddy. She claims that she's never had her hair cut by anyone but her dad or grandma so she was pretty excited to climb up into that chair. much better, don't you agree?

And in other short hair news....I too, got my hair cut. It was long. And I needed a change, for change sake...but also because the older I get, the thinner my hair gets. Seriously, my pony tails looked ridiculous and every time I tried to do some kind of up-do it was an exercise in frustration feeling like I just didn't have enough hair to do much with. So I got brave (after a full year of debating) and chopped off 6 inches. But now I'm having haircut remorse. It's more mental than anything because it isn't necessarily a bad haircut. But it was so long for so long that I'm missing it. And (crazily) I'm freaking out wondering if cutting my hair means that I've now admitted that I'm getting old. (I turn 40 this year...)

Oh my gosh Lillian's hair is so cute! And your's looks great, it's a good cute for you!

Hey, I just cut Abby's hair about that length yesterday. She needed a chop because just like Lilian, she hates having me brush out the many snarls. So Miss Abby and Miss Lilian can be short hair twiners.

And your hair looks cute too. I wouldn't have the know, same old Mary. Has had the same hair cut for 30 years.

I think you both look great! I figure it is good to cut your hair every now and again just, like you said, for a change. I used to cut and drastically color all at the same time so it was a major change. I haven't gone too different in color for a long time, although dad thinks the dark brown is very drastic.

I've been having the hair debate myself. Is it time for a new look and am I brave enough to do it? I'm not there yet, but it's definitely in the consideration stages.
