Michael's 6 inch Haircut!

Today started out like any other... mommy trying to comb out the tangled rat's nest that is Michael Anne's hair after a long night of sleeping & squirming in her bed.
You know how it goes, first an "ouch" then a tear or two, followed by gallons of tears, sobbing, screaming, running away... Poor girl. We even employ the wonderful de-tangler spray but even that sometimes doesn't work well enough. So I said to her what mothers of all eras have said to their little long haired beauties "Beauty knows no pain." She replied "This beauty knows plenty of pain!" So then I said we could cut her hair off so the pain would be less & she got all excited and said "LET'S DO IT!" So we did & here it is... (By the way, Daddy doesn't know yet. He'll see it when he picks up his little girly on his way home from work from her playdate - Michael wonders if he'll know who she is!!!)

Not sure why I didn't take a before picture but it was down to the bottom of her shoulder blades in the back, which is about the end of this next picture!

Very cute!

Nick said to me one Saturday morning: "what is this Saturday morning ritual you have? You take Alison into the bathroom and then she starts crying." I replied, "oh no, this isn't just a Saturday thing. It's everyday you just aren't here to hear it."

I'm thinking I will cut her hair too.

i have the same problem with emma. her hair is the epitome of difficult to comb/brush. it is a constant battle. however, whenever i say we could cut it, she immediately answers NO WAY!! so she endures and i continue to try ways to do her hair with less pain..detangler is a joke doesn't work. we have to often braid her hair at night and that helps with limiting the snangles in the morning!! oh, btw....what a beauty and a cutie!!

Wow, it's been a while since we cut Michael's hair & I think it is so cute but I was just looking at some old pics of those pretty, long, braids & wondering how I could have cut them off!
