My agenda today did not include a trip to the hair salon until I noticed that Katie had taken scissors to her beautiful locks right in front and center! I couldn't believe it. We are in the middle of preparing for a birthday party and was planning on making the cake today but this halted all those plans.
I agree, this is not the most flattering picture of my baby. But after crying for an hour, what else might we expect? Just after I took the picture, Katie laid down and took a nap. She was exhausted from all that crying!
We woke her up to take her to the salon of miracles! Damage control is what I called it. Believe it or not, this was Katie's first professional haircut. They trimmed, thinned, layered, and straightened. And this is how it turned out...
It was well worth the $12 I paid since we were there for about 1-1/2 hours! I'm still not sure if we should enforce discipline beyond our discussion this afternoon, or if the hour of crying was enough.
Today, I am thankful for...
- the hair stylist that disguised Katie's short bang.
- dinner out at a great restaurant.
- strawberry shortcake...YUM!
- the rain we had today.
