I gave in...

Feb 7, 2014

When I first saw the word "girl" typed over a blurry ultrasound photo, I immediately pictured pigtails and hair bows.  But since day one Scarlett would have nothing to do with anything frilly cramping her ragamuffin style. On any given day, you could find her with a rats nest in the back and a row of knots clinging to the front. Scarlett has always twirled her hair into tiny spirals as a method of comfort. So, instead of cutting out each individual knot or suffering through the dreading comb, I finally gave in and let Scarlett chose her own hair style...she went from this, self cut style...

After she cut her hair by herself, I told her that if she really wanted short hair I would make an appointment at the salon for the both of us.  I was extremely over due for a trim so my mini me tagged along and made the very big girl choice of a short pixie. She walked away with a huge smile and a bounce in her step and I walked away wishing I had joined the pixie club too.


  1. I know right...is it weird that I am jealous of my 4 years olds stylish hair?

  2. I LOVE it! I think you have given us a glimpse into the big girl Scarlett has become...amazing what hair a whole lot of personality can do!
