Along with all you other moms (come on, raise your hand if you took your kid in too!), I took Maddy in for a "back-to-school" haircut.
I wasn't sure exactly what to do with her hair. She has perfectly beautiful thick and straight black hair that I love -- the straightness that I have envied and wished for my entire life!
It was getting long and often tangled. She doesn't like to have it pulled back in a pony or piggies. And so much pool time in the last few weeks made it feel rough and clumpy and resulted in tears and screeches of "OW OW OW" at my attempts to brush it in the mornings.
I gave my hairdresser an indication of how much to cut off -- like an inch and a half or
two inches sounded good. Turned out that she took off about 3 inches,
a bit shorter than I really thought it would be, but it's so cute!
Maddy loves it and says it is so easy to comb -- which is so nice, esp. with the busy mornings of getting out the door for school coming up Thursday, Aug. 20.
Watch for first day of school pictures and the school report soon!
