It's a girl thing.
Friday, March 4, 2011

It happens to all of femalekind.  We think we want a drastic hair cut.  We're quite sure of it. Confident right up to the minute of the first snip....and then that confidence shatters.

Turns out,  5 year olds are not immune to this particular drama...

Fade to last Tuesday:

Stylist:  Okay, now show me again.  How short do you want it?

Lauryn:  Right here. [touches her cheek below her ear]

Stylist:  Does your Daddy know you're cutting off all this blond hair?  Show me again.

Lauryn:  Right here! [repeat gesture]

Stylist:  Okay, I'm about to cut it.  Are you sure baby?

Lauryn:  [enthusiastic nod with a huge smile plastered on her face]

The stylist makes that first snip....and cue the waterworks.  A pitiful chorus of "I look terrible.  I don't like it.  I don't look good!"  Lauryn was crying. The stylist was crying. And I'm just shaking my head at the entire female gender, remember how many times I was in her same shoes, holding in the tears by sheer force of will and pride.  Crazy.

She would barely consent to me snapping a picture to send to Daddy, in spite of many reassurances that she looks adorable.

Love that girl so much.  Short hair or long. I'm confident we have many, many more hair related dramas to live through together!
