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!
