Lala and I had agreed to grow our hair for Locks of Love some time ago.
It took me a really long time to grow my hair this long. I have slow hair. So it was a huge will-strengthening activity for me to see it through and not just get another trim, despite the fact that in many ways, I love shorter hair and think it flatters me more. I have pretty, thick hair. (Positive affirmation!) I am pleased, though, that a sweet child will now have some temporary pretty, thick hair.
After, 11.5 inches (plus additional styling trim) shorter:
(The kids took these photos!)
I admit, getting a bit haircut is a bit anxiety producing for me. (Like the dentist is for many.) I feel good and refreshed, though, like I have a clean start somehow.
As for Lala, she's still growing and deciding whether she wants to cut it yet or not.
