Lately, Lily has been talking of cutting her hair. Wasn't sure if she wanted her hair cut because her sister, Hanna, had her hair cut short. Or if she really wanted it. I kept thinking, she doesn't understand what it would mean to have short hair. Which is ridiculous to think lily does not know what she wants or what the consequences would mean. Lily is always sure what she wants. Whether it is food, toys or clothes. Lily knows! Looking back, I know it was me not wanting her to change. What if all her self confidence is cut away with her hair. What if the only thing that people compliment her on is gone. WHAT IF! After much begging on Lily's and her sisters, part I took her to get her hair cut! I was shaking so bad. Lily was just giddy with excitement. She climbed right into the chair and gestured to the stylist to cut!
|She looked so pretty when the stylist was done. And than I asked the stylist to please giver her bangs.|
I had never seen Lily more happier or confident! In fact, she became one sassy chick!
We went to Publix afterwards. She was showing everyone her new haircut! The sweetest part was donating 13" to Locks of Love. What a great gift my daughter's beautiful hair is. Kind of takes some of my sadness away.
What I keep seeing is an all new Lily. She lost all her little girl look and now looks more mature. She is definitely ready for Middle School! Lily always knows best!
