The girls have been growing their hair out for a while now, with the hopes of donating it.
Last week they couldn't take it another second and begged me to take them to get their hair cut. I love playing with their hair - braids, ponytails, messy buns, french braids, sponge curlers, bows, bows, BOWS! But I reluctantly took them to get the big CHOP.
A certain little blondie chickened out, but still got a couple of inches off.
(I was relieved.)
Emma got THE CHOP.
She barely had enough to donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which requires 8". (Locks of Love requires 10".) That's all she needed to hear! She was ready.
The hairdresser asked Emma, "Are you ready?"
And I jumped in and said, "No! I'm not!"
But... snip, snip!
I love it. She looks adorable. It took a few days for me to get used to it, but I love how fresh and well-kept it looks. And I'm proud of her for wanting to help others in this way.
Thankfully it's still long enough to play with.
I've already done a couple of little braids and a ponytail and a headband...
so our HUNDREDS of hair accessories aren't going to waste!
(You think I'm kidding...)
I just *love* her cute little profile!
Now she says she doesn't want to cut it for a long time because she wants to donate it again. I won't try to convince her otherwise this time. I love it!
