New Haircut

Ashlyn wanted her hair cut. She started telling me maybe a year ago that she wanted short hair, like Granny and Grandma. Or Daddy and Christopher. Um, no. I wanted her to still look like a little girl, but she kept saying that she wanted short hair. We still don't think that she understands that the hair grows back very slowly. Finally, I convinced Ashlyn (and myself) that maybe we could deal with shorter hair, but more like mine than Daddy. I told her that we wouldn't be able to have ponytails and braids anymore. She just reminded me that she always takes those out anyway. So, today I took the kids for haircuts.

I think the cut really suits her. Hopefully, her hair won't be as much of a mess at this length, either. (Christopher's hair cut didn't turn out as well.)

Cute. And, you can still do lots with it. I think. You could, for fun, put it in curlers and get it curly, or do some pigtails, etc. I think it's great!

We had McKenzie's hair cut shorter a few years back and I find it much easier to take care of now and she gets so many compliments on it short.....

A grown up look. She looks very stylish.

She looks very grown up! and you should have waited for ME to cut Christopher's hair! I could have promised not to go so short :)
Can't wait to see you! I'll be the one at the airport with my boobs out :)
