It takes a little time and a lot of aloe vera gel to make it look nice. Usually it is up in a large, heavy bun out of the way of dirty diapers and baby spit. During a season in life when I don't feel very good, having a short, fun cut makes me feel less frumpy when I have to get everyone out of the house and don't have the time or energy to fuss with my hair.
I decided to go big and get enough cut so could donate it. I tried to donate my hair when Tony was two but he got into the pony tail and pulled it all into a terrible mess. Here's the pony tail we cut off. I'm keeping it hidden from Amanda until I can get it mailed off.
So, are you ready to see the cut?
How about a little more?
Here's the back.
And finally the front!
I really like it and it feels great. It ended up being a little shorter than I was expecting, but it will grow back soon enough. Especially since I probably won't have much time for hair cuts anytime in the near future.
Today, I had to leave Tony in charge of the girls because Mike couldn't get away from work. As Amanda was throwing a fit when I was leaving he begged me, "Please can't you take her with you?" She was happily watching Sponge Bob by the time I came back so he must have survived. Christiana was still sleeping like I expected.
