We said we weren't going to do it. We cringed when other people did it.* But today...we cut our daughter's hair. For a long time it was hidden well enough by the curls and the pigtails, but really, Natalie's hair was quite uneven and only getting worse. A bit mullet-like, but really more just messy and shaggy looking. Now don't get me wrong, I loved the shag and the long curly back
. But even I could admit that it was starting to look a little wild-child-ish. And Jen's mom began hinting that if we didn't do something about it soon we might pick her up one day to find it done for us. So we figured it was better to take matters into our own hands.
We didn't touch the front. Neither of us felt comfortable cutting bangs, and then we'd just have to keep cutting it. We'll just continue pulling it back so that she can see. And really, it continues to look a little wild because of the curls. But it's a more or less one length
wild now. And there's a little baggie of curls
to waiting to be added to her woefully neglected baby book. Waaah. *No, not at the results. Don't go getting all offended. We admitted the cuteness of the after shots. It was more the implication that these children were growing up, and the slightly older look post-cut.
