What Was I Thinking?

I know what I was thinking. I was thinking that it was too much work...too much of a struggle. I was thinking that I was pregnant, and I was tired, and she fought me on it every morning. I was thinking that I had never been a fan of rats nests, and that's what it was 90% of the time.

Granted it has been over a year, but I found these pictures the other day and I really found myself asking WHAT WAS I THINKING??

Then, it happened! I woke up one morning, and I made the decision to go ahead...and this was the result

Granted, the girls hair grows like wildfire, and we just cut another 3 inches off this Christmas (those pictures were from last Christmas), and she still DOES have some curl....but I don't think she will ever have that much curl again....and I miss it.

Seriously, when we didn't wash it the day of and put curl control product in it...she could've been mistaken for a miniature Bob Marley with the dread locks she had goin' on, but I do miss it:).

I never realized how long it really was!

No matter how short or long you cut her hair it will always be beautiful. I love the color.

Long or short, she's just about the cutest thing I've ever seen.

Addie's had 2 haircuts only in her entire 5 years. The knots are a big drag, but she's relatively patient with the combing.

She is lovely!

Karen took the words out of my mouth!! She is gorgeous and as a fellow curly-head, shorter is so much easier to manage and her hair is just as beautiful long as it is short!
