Not long ago, Brenna was convinced she was turning into Rapunzel. She told us she was never going to cut it! You can imagine my surprise when this conversation occurred one morning before school as I was doing her hair:
Brenna: "Owwww, Mommy. You're hurting me!" (add in some more whining and complaining as I am brushing her hair)
Me: "Brenna, you have tangles just like Rapunzel. The only way you won't have tangles is if you cut it all off."
Brenna: "Yeah, let's do that then."
What?! That wasn't really my point at all. I was completely shocked she said that. She continued to tell me she wanted short hair. I told her about Locks of Love and how she could send her hair in to help make wigs for kids with cancer. I explained to her that some kids are so sick that they lose all of their hair. By this point, she had made up her mind to cut her hair. When I asked her if she was sure she wanted to cut it, she told me, "Yeah, I need to give it to the kids with the sickness." I thought that was very sweet.
The picture below was taken at her school Christmas party. They made reindeer antlers using their handprints and one of the moms drew red Rudolph noses on all the kids. So cute! This was her last day of long hair before her hair cut that afternoon.
My mom is a hair dresser so we headed over to Nanny's house after school for the big cut.
Her new short hair with her natural curl.
I love her new cut when I dry it straight and curled under in a little bob. I think it looks so cute. I wasn't prepared for how much older she would look with her new hair style. She is holding her long ponytail here. It was 10 inches pulled straight! We are having way fewer tears when getting ready in the morning. She loves her new short hair.
