Oops! I Did It Again!

I don't know what possessed me to do it.

Parents all over the world do it every day.

We commit this unspeakable crime all the time. We think it's our God given right to do this to our children.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. I am talking about butchering our children's hair!

Unless you are a professional hair dresser, please put the scissors down.

My little one's hair was getting quite long, but I didn't want to cut it. I love being able to fix her hair and make her hair look pretty.
However, it was growing in such an unruly manner and always looked so messy and unkempt. Yes, it was cute, but it was always in her face!
I did it. It was as though some unseen force was guiding my hands. Before I knew it, I had chopped off FOUR inches of her baby fine hair! A little crooked okay, A LOT crooked!, a little lop-sided, but finally not in her face anymore!
I almost cried! WHAT did I just do?
Hubby came home to see me (obviously distraught) and looked over at Little One, who was dancing around in circles, showing off her pixie 'do.

"I cut her hair! It was driving me crazy that it was always so messy looking. Now she looks so grown up!", I wailed.

"It looks good. Don't worry. It will grow back. It actually suits her!", Hubby said.
I don't know what it is about haircuts and children, but it just makes them seem like they're no longer babies. Yes, I realize Little One is no longer a baby.  This just reminds me that she's growing up so fast and will be going to school before I know it.

Shockingly, everyone who has seen her new 'do has said they love it and that it looks great. It was a total fluke though.

I know what you mean about haircuts making our kids look so much older. :( I feel the same way!

C said...

You are so right! It's only hair. It'll grow back. :) Happy Holidays to you! xo

It's adorable! I love it. Funny thing is, you're right, she looks a little older. Then she'll grow up some, and get to the point where cutting it makes her look like your baby again...that's how it is with Maya. She looks sophisticated and grown up to me now, but if she cuts her hair short, she looks at least 4 years younger. Funny.
