I'm very proud of her. She got the idea from watching a kid's news program quite a while ago and brought it up again recently. I finally remembered to do some research on it and made the hair appointment yesterday.
It'll be quite a change. She hasn't had short hair since she was 4, and that through her own wiles. She gathered up her hair into a ponytail, whacked it off with scissors, then presented it to me on a lacy doily. I cried. She had beautiful Shirley Temple curls and they never grew back. But now her hair is long and lovely and she's ready to give it away.
You go, girl.
Oy, now I'm all verklempt.
Awh, shucks. Moments like that make you proud to be a mom. When my oldest was about 8 he started earning all his pocket money by busking. One day he came in and told me he intended to busk all day and donate it to the MS society. When I asked him why, he said because people with the condition couldn't go and busk for themselves. I was chuffed. Kids can be so sweet when they're not being monsters.
I'm very proud of your kiddo. It'a really a wonderful tribute to her parentage.
That is wonderful!!Hope you enjoy your new, much shorter, hair.
I did this some time ago, donated 18inches of hair!
That's awesome! If I could, I'd do it but I dyed my hair one two many times to make it worth anything!
I remember when I had red shirly temple hair and then my sister lit my hair on fire. My hair grew back straight and strawberry blond.
Your dd is a sweetheart!
[[now I'm all verklempt]]
Me too! [sniff]
