A Summer "Do"

I HATE cutting the kids hair!

Thomas has only had one hair cut, and Gracie has had...well, less than five.

Not only is it hard to get the child to sit or stand still, it is just so hard to watch the locks fall to the floor.

Now, I know I am a "different" kind of mommy, but I have heard from other moms that it was hard for them too. They were talking about the first haircut...but I digress.

It is so hot here, and I know the last week of school Gracie has several outdoor activities. Not only was her hair getting very long, but it is so thick.

So, I asked her what she thought about getting a trim.

She was all for the idea, and I sank each time large chunks of my child's beautiful hair floated to the ground.

Okay plopped, but I was going for a beautiful description there.

She seemed to like it, and while wet it was a pretty good length, I know when she wakes up in the morning and I see just how short it is I will cry a little inside.

Yeah--I am pathetic, I know.

And, this is why Gracie has had 3-4 haircuts in her lifetime--including tonight's!

Of course Thomas is in desperate need of one, and I am thinking I will have to do better by him so he isn't mistaken for a little girl.

I think I will enlist Aunt Ruth's help this time though! I got too lucky last time!
