I tried to use various means to cover up the sin - bandannas, rubber bands, barretts - but invariably, it would fall out and expose the truth. Her scraggly appearance had to come to an end, it was time to visit the salon.
So today, PS has been transformed into a little pixie. "Don't worry mommy, " she said, giggling under her kid cape as she sat on the chair at the salon, "You don't have to cry mommy, it'll grow back!"
She easily had 10 1/2 inches to share, so we asked them to donate it to Locks of Love: http://www.locksoflove.org/ to be used to make a wig for a child without hair. In the end, the thought that her beautiful blond hair would be used in this way dried up all my tears.
Way to go little sprout!! You look like a kindergartner now!! She loves it!! I miss the long blond hair of yesterday but I must admit, this cut fits her spunky personaltity!
