that all you other mom's out there with daughters don't go through the fights every morning like I do! The "go brush your hair, don't go out of the house looking like that, please, brush your hair, your hair looks like a rat's nest".....yea, that one!!
Well, I DO go through that every morning....w/ the oldest girly. Are you surprised? Didn't think so.
Liyah, well she is the princess and she could comb/brush her hair for hours. All the thin, fine, 10" of it!! She loves getting out the detangling spray, a brush & standing in front of the mirror, spraying---combing---spraying---brushing!! Oh, yeah, it's gonna be hard getting her out the door when she gets older, cause her hair won't be perfect!
Lauryn on the other hand....could care less. No, let me say, "she could care less than less"! UUUGH!
The girly has got the MOST gorgeous thick, curly, blonde head of hair....and she doesn't give a rip!
Some mornings she leaves for school without it being brushed, and yes it does look like some mice snuggled in for the long haul. I'm just too tired to fight, again. Yep, I'm lazy like that!
So, I pull the old mother thing...if you aren't going to take care of it then we'll just cut it off! Yep, I said it, I did (just like I say many other Mommy-phrases, I'm a little into the whole recycling craze). Well, bless my big bottom, but the other night after her shower I was going to just trim up the bangs (want the kid to see @ school now don't we) & the little
Huh? How short? Are you sure? Yes, I've been telling her I was going to cut it short....but it's so pretty I'm not sure I really wanted to. She assured me that she wanted it short, & being the mommy who cuts her own hair knowing it will grow back....said, "ok"
Here's how it went down....pulled it into a pony & chopped the pony off. Then I just trimmed it up and made sure there weren't any weird strays. 6 minutes later & voila! She was giggling in the mirror saying it was, "beautiful", it was "so cool" & the dreaded, "it looks like a teenagers hair". The 7 yr. old is jonesing to be a teenager sooo bad it scares me!

|the cute curls & waves! *giggle*|
This is the majority of what we cut off. She named it "Mr. Chunky" & has it tucked into the drawer of her jewelry box!! Crazy Kiddo...but I love her!
