Today Carolyn donated 10 inches of hair to Locks of Love. She hasn't had short hair since she was a baby. It's ALWAYS been long. Last spring, we talked about her donating her hair; she wanted to do it but we decided to wait until after she was a flower girl in Stephanie's wedding. After the wedding she changed her mind.
Since school started, however, she has talked and talked and talked about it. We decided to wait until after school pictures, which were yesterday. So today, SHE DID IT! I'm so glad we waited because she has been so excited about it this time and has told everyone she sees that she was getting it cut today. (To the horror of some!)
I didn't know if she would be sad after the deed was done, but she smiled and loves her new 'do.
Her brother, on the other hand...
As she was getting it cut, I noticed that Coleman was very quiet. I asked him if he was tired and he said no, that he was just sad that Carolyn was losing her beautiful hair. How sweet is that? (And so typical of a guy!)
The ladies at the salon were so sweet and made a big to-do. Carolyn got a certificate (and a free haircut-nice for mom!) and they told her how wonderful it was that she was donating her pretty hair.
We filled out the donation form and I asked her what she wanted to say. Then she signed her name to it and waved good-bye to her ponytails!
How cute is she?
Except that she looks about two years older now...
I can't believe she had ten inches cut and still has THIS MUCH HAIR! We should have cut twelve...
