*** Warning: If you are one of my sisters, and you want to be surprised by this in person, read NO FARTHER!!!!!!! ***
A couple weeks ago, I was combing Sweetpea's hair after a bath and I said "your hair is down to your butt!" Her response was "oooohhhhh! We should cut it and donate it!" Now, she is only 3, so you can imagine my surprise. Munch has donated her hair twice in her 11 years. But not in the last 2 years. It seemed hard to believe that Sweetpea could remember her sister doing that. They must have talked about it at some time or another. Ya know, as sisters are wont to do even if there is an 8 year difference between them.
We decided to wait until after the recital was over. So I could more easily pin her hair back.
Last night after her bath, we downloaded the form from Locks of Love, and set to work.
Sweetpea is having a great time telling how it all happened. Here's her version of it (in her words, but without her little Sweetpea accent):
First, we picked out a rubber band. A pink one.
And mama put it in my hair in a pony tail.
I had to hold really still.
Then mama cut the pony tail off!
[fit of goofy girl giggles]
The whole pony tail!!
[hand motions and more giggles]
12 inches. Oddly, this was very difficult for me. I sorta felt like i was cutting off one of her limbs. Like it would hurt her or something. Not sure why I felt like that. I'm usually not one to be so sentimental about things like that. But...
I'm loving the new look!
So fresh and cute.
I think she's loving it too.
