She is beautiful

Marissa turned 5 in June and she had never had a real haircut. I have snipped at the ends a couple times, never trimming off much more than an inch at a time. On several occasions I have asked her if she would like her haircut. She has always looked at me like I am out of my mind and said a very disturbed “NO”. Like the kind of no that says why would you ask me such a bizarre question mom!!!

Until yesterday.

I was brushing and playing with her hair and I showed her what it would look like shorter. She got SO excited and said “Let’s do it!” “Get the scissors mom.” I was shocked, hesitant, and excited. As the day went along she kept asking and asking and asking when we would cut her hair. At bed time she asked again if we could cut her hair tomorrow. She had made up her mind and she wanted to do it now!

So, we did!

At 10:00 this morning she chopped right at 8″ of hair off grinning the whole entire time.

Best part is she cut just enough of to donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. She was excited about being able to donate her hair after I explained the cause the best I could to her five year old brain.

She absolutely loves her new hair and can’t wait til daddy gets home so she can surprise him.

She is beautiful, inside and out. I am so proud to call her mine.
