Emmy had her first haircut.
I tried to put off this day as long as I could. The Hubs started talking about cutting her hair the minute it could be pulled into a ponytail. I was horribly against it. Then about a month ago, I took Noah to get his hair cut (boy's hair grows like a weed) and Emmy wanted Marlene to brush her hair. So she got up in the chair, put the cape on, and let Marlene brush Em's horrible hair. At this point, we noticed that Em's hair came to a point in the middle of her back. Marlene said we should cut it off and make it even. My heart sank. Of course, I wasn't prepared for this monumental occasion (ie no camera, no ziploc bag) so we postponed it until the weekend before school.
Side note about Emmy's hair....she has the most ridiculous hair. It is wavy/curly. She can have perfect ringlets one minute, then the ringlets are gone and she's got waves everywhere. I'm so jealous of her hair. However, it is a hot mess about 95% of the time. It gets all nappy and matted after she sleeps on it. It takes about 15 minutes to brush it, if she'll let you. Detangler is the only way it will brush out. The knots that I find are crazy. It's like a rat's nest on the back of her head. And then, poof, it's back to beautiful curls. It's ridiculous I tell you. Here's photographic evidence of the crazy that is attached to my daughter's head
|And the best part is, that's not even close to the worst hair Em has had. It's just be best picture of it|
|She did so good! I guess it could have been a lot worse.|
I guess haircuts are a part of my life now for Em. I just hope the Hubs doesn't think this means she will get a trim whenever he feels like it. And there will be NO BANGS!!!!!
