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.)
