Eight inches she cut off on Saturday.
She just decided she wanted it cut.
No nerves, no worries. Nothing.
She just wanted it cut and so she did.
Her comment afterwards, "I didn't know how good it would look mommy."
I was at a women's tea hearing a friend speak.
When it was over I had five text messages and two missed calls.
All from my husband.
One of them was the before pic with the hairdresser holding the
place where she'd cut.
The hairdresser and daddy were wise enough to say they
had to wait to talk to mommy.
This is the child who wanted mermaid hair forever and ever.
I talked to her and said as long as you know that it takes time
to grow it back if you want it long again.
As long as you're fine with that, then go ahead.
I then drove to meet them.
And by the time I got there the after was already complete.
In an instant she looks older, she seems more confident.
She seems like a new little girl.
I'm proud of her and her generosity in giving her
hair to locks of love.
