My baby girl has been asking to cut & donate her beautiful, long hair for several months now. Last night I just decided to go ahead and do it today and be done with it. Her hair really needed the cut and it IS just hair but I will admit that tears welled up as it was cut. Aaron loves his girls to have long hair so it was especially tough for him to let us go through with it but I've reminded him (as I've reminded myself) that it WILL grow back.
Hannah has had one trim and one cut (couple inches) in her lifetime and that's it. She wasn't thrilled about sitting there to get it done but I've caught her admiring her hair and running her fingers through it several times since we got home. In fact, she JUST walked in as I was typing and said, "Mama, I really like my hair." I also think it's sweet that she was very concerned about HOW they were going to make her hair into a wig. Apparently she was under the impression that they'd do it right there in the salon. haha
