We started a new era at our house last night. Nugget had her first hair cut. I had been contemplating it for awhile. Put it off. Pretended it didn't really need it. Realized I just needed to bite the bullet.
I remembered a conversation with my BIL, Chad, shortly after she was born. He, having only had boys up to that point, asked me what you always ask the parent of a new boy: "When do you think you'll cut her hair?" I just stared at him and said, "Never?"
Fast forward 2.5 years, her hair is getting long but there are quite a few split ends.
This was very difficult--and I'm not just talking emotionally here. She had a tendancy to turn her head right as I was snipping, Zita would come up and reach up, she would sneeze, etc. It was something else. It ended up shorter than I was hoping for but I think it looks thicker and better.
