The Haircut

So much impatience in the world these days! Here are the before and after pictures of the haircut. I know they are not the greatest pictures but I was struggling and a couple of them were taken on my phone.

I am getting used to the haircut. People keep telling me that it isn't even short but it feels so much shorter than it was! If I put it in a ponytail, it almost all falls out after a few hours! That could be caused by the toddler I am always wrestling. A few times I have thought that it would look better a little shorter but I don't think I am ready for that. For now, I am keeping it the way it is and I like it. I am still trying to figure out what to do with it but it is so fun to have something different!

Sam loves being able to run his fingers through my hair and I love that it isn't a tangled mess.

A few times recently I have remembered a birthday party I had when I was about 11 years old. As gifts from my friends and family, I received a total of six hair brushes. I still use one of those brushes and my mom uses another one. I laughed when it happened and thought, "Here's your sign, Emily." I have been neglecting my hair for far too long. I am ready to take care of myself!

It looks great! I think it was definitely a good choice. And Sam told me about your Halloween costumes. They sound awesome. I look forward to seeing pictures.

I love it. It looks great. And you're right it isn't as short as I was expecting from your last post.

My husband is clueless though. He was looking at the pictures and he actually asked which one was the before and after. I asked him if he was serious and he said, "Well in that picture it's wet and curly hair shrinks when it dries."

I'm still laughing at him.
