Hair Cuts, I Mean Hair "Trims"

I got my hair cut yesterday.  We decided it was time to get Maddie used to the idea of getting her hair cut (breath in- breath out).  I really don't know why that's a big deal to me...so weird.  But anyway, we brought along our little booster seat and sat her in the chair.  She was not impressed.  Kelly, my hairdresser suggested she sit on my lap instead.  A little better.  I kept saying, "cut hair, cut hair" and one of the other hairdresser suggested we use the word "trim" instead because if they know the word cut, it makes sense why they would be so frightened!  Brilliant! 
Anyway, it was good practice to get her used to the idea.  Maybe we can find an Elmo video of getting hair "trimmed".  In the meantime, I guess we'll by putting up a lot of pigtails for the summer heat!
that's just cheese on her chin and nose   

Here's my new hair cut...I always have to take a picture of it after Kelly has fixed it so I know what's possible.  I can never re-create the style like he does it, but I'm going to try!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE your new hair cut.
