A few weeks ago I took the girls to get their hair cut, and had them cut Charlotte's in a bob. It was actually just like my hair cut - shorter in the back, a little longer in the front, and it came out just too too cute.
I purposely DIDN'T have Katie's cut like that, because I wanted them to look different. I had them trim hers, and flip up the ends and at the time it looked adorable but on a day to day basis, it was pretty much just a mess. Both girls have inherited my hair which has it goods points (it's THICK and at their age it's a really pretty color) but it also has it's not so great points (tons of cowlicks and weird waves – later in life they will both become very good friends with the straightening iron, I’m sure).
The other night Katie's hair was driving me nuts, and her bangs had gotten way too long, so being an idiot I figured, how hard could it be to trim her bangs myself? While they were in the tub that night i tried to cut them and of course she didn't cooperate or sit still. They didn't look THAT bad though - until she woke up the next morning and i saw her hair completely dry.
Let's just say YIKES. I did a BAD bad job.
So, off we went to the hair dresser to try and get it fixed, where the sweet woman who cuts their hair kept saying “Mommy, don’t cut their hair again! Please!” and now Katie has a haircut like Charlotte's. Except with much shorter bangs. PJ calls her Buster Brown. I just call her ADORABLE.
It’s also made them look so grown up. My pretty babies are definitely little girls.
