A new look

This morning I had finally had it. The crying, screaming and hiding the hair brush had to end. I have a total of 6 hairbrushes in this house and all of them were in hiding because my darling daughter hates to get her hair brushed. She wants it to be long and beautiful and down to the middle of her back, but can't stand the brushing. I can't stand the brushing either.

So, we talked about it and decided it was time for a cut, a new style, something different and fun. We searched the internet for some pictures of something she might like to try and she picked out the above picture. She loves the colors and the lipstick. {Ummm. you are 5. Not going to happen. Even when you are 15, NOT going to happen.} We kept looking. She didn't like most of what she saw. When I asked her what it was she wanted, she chose a short wedge style. That was a little shorter than I wanted to go, so we compromised. Not quite to the ear, higher than the chin with some layering in the back to give it some style.

It turned out really cute but I still wasn't prepared for the change, even though I wanted it. She went from little girl to big girl in just a few snips. Kindergarten, here we come!

She looks like you at that age. Super cute. What about hair chalking for a temporary punk rock color girl?

It's so funny that Megan picked the rainbow hair. Audrey is sitting behind me and saw the picture and told me it looked so pretty. Then she asked if I liked it and when I said no she was puzzled. I explained that hair isn't supposed to be those colors, except maybe for Halloween. I still think she isn't sure why I don't love the rainbow hair. It must be a little girl thing. And Megan looks so cute and so grown up with her new haircut! Audrey got a bunch chopped off hers a couple of months ago and she immediately looked like a big kid. So sad for us, but they seem to love being big!

Very cute!

I keep thinking that I need to cut Cozy's hair, but I just can't bring myself to do it.
