"I'm just a (girl) with a new haircut
and that's a pretty nice haircut"
Well, it's done. Little Bird is officially 9 inches (of hair) lighter. There were actually a lot more people at the event that I had expected, which is a nice thing and it's nice to see so many people doing such a good thing. However, we did have to wait a little bit longer than I had planned to, which meant I had to entertain Little Bird! We spent a little time looking at other people getting their haircuts and talking about Little Bird getting hers done. Finally, it was Little Bird's turn and she suddenly lost her nice, calm demeanor. A very nice stylist measured and remeasured and remeasured her ponytail (since Little Bird kept pulling it out and walking away from her). We got the 9 inches all measured and ready to cut.
Okay, here we go.....
Deep breath....in....out....in... and.... SNIP SNIP!
Little Bird was so upset!! She hates having her hair brushed. So, I think having a comb run through her hair was more upsetting than the actual cutting. A very nice lady who was also donating her hair, took pictures for me while I held Little Bird's hands.
No, I am not on Facebook while she's getting a haircut. I'm simply putting a Dora episode on my iPhone in attempt to distract her!!
It's not working.....
After it was all over, they were still friends....
Front and back views
She is so adorable. I swear, she looks more grown up! I can't be sure, but I think after Little Bird, the hair stylist might be reconsidering her willingness to work with kids again!!!
Look how freaking cute this is!!
When it was all over, we were asked to write WHY we donated this hair.
In case you can't read that, it says "practicing random acts of kindness."
