So my cousin Tammy offered to take Emily for the day earlier this week so I could get some unpacking done (and a little shopping - don't tell!). When I met her to pick Emily up, Tammy was so upset saying she only left them alone for a minute to go to the bathroom. I thought she was going to tell me she got hurt. What she told me was that her 3 yr old daughter Faith cut Emily's hair. The bad part was that Faith had cut her own hair just a few days before. You can see why Tammy would be so upset.
She got a chunk of her bands and a pretty good chunk out of the back. The back wasn't real noticeable because her hair is so wavy, but it needed to be fixed.
We were at a mall yesterday, so I decided to get it cut. We had to go short to even it up.
I almost cried when she started cutting. I thought it would be too short and not look good, but by the time she finished I saw it was going to be ok. I think it looks adorable. And now it will grow out even. I will miss pigtails though. But as I told Tammy. It's hair - it will grow back!
Tammy still feels badly about it, but I told her now we have the best family story. We'll be telling it at the girls' weddings!
I have been married since 1990 to a wonderful man. We have one (grown?) son on his own, one son in 8th grade who loves to beat his drums, one son in 5th grade who makes beautiful music on the piano, and a beautiful 2 yr old who loves everything pink, purple, and girly whom we adopted from foster care. After 22 years in New Mexico we have recently moved across the country. I love Jesus with all my heart. I love my men. I love my girl. I love to read. I love to knit. I love digital scrapbooking. I love chocolate. That about sums it up!
