OFF with her hair!

Yeah, yeah. It wasn't too long ago that Cassie had her hair cut to make a donation to Locks of Love. And lil' Candace begged and begged to have her hair cut. Recall at the time....MOM was NOT too keen on the idea. I LOVE her hair!

But after a week of school mornings and combing through her wind-blown-from-playing-outside hair snarls.....

When she begged once more this morning with tears in her eyes from the "gentle" hair brushing....I was PERFECTLY fine with her request.

My response: "Tonight Candace, okay?"

Her response: "Do you pwomise, Mom? Cuz you CAN'T break a pwomise!"

Me: "Promise!"

This is the FIRST time her hair has been cut, other than a lil' trim here-n-there, and of COURSE her bang cuts.....

She was nervous! Every time I grabbed another hair-tie, she thought I was grabbing the scissors to cut her hair, and she pulled away from me.

"I'm afwaid Mom..." she kept saying. {{She's trying so hard on those hard 'r-sounds'. She's ALMOST there!}}

I calmed her, as did her bigger sisters. And I asked her ONE FINAL TIME if she was SURE she wanted the shorter hair....

"YES MOM!!!!! Just DO it already!"

She BOLTED to the bathroom mirror once I made the complete cut across the pony-tail, squeeeeeling and giggggling! Caitlyn wasn't far behind her, either.

I had to convince her to sit still a bit longer so that I could trim up and even out the cuts.

And if she weren't a whole foot (and then some) shorter than Cassie, I would have a hard time telling the two of them apart from the back.

She looks great! Seriously a good cut for her. Some lucky kid will really enjoy her extra hair too! Tell her I said so, lol!

Well, doesn't she look the bees knees! I had long hair like that when I was small, but was so pleased when I had it cut off when I was about ten, y head felt so much lighter and freer. I wonder if she'll ever go back to having it long again?

What a smile, I'm sure it will be much easier in the mornings now. Congratulations on being brave.

Such pretty hair!! It will make someone a beautiful wig. And she's every bit as cute with shorter hair.

Awww so cute!!

Her hair was beautiful, and still is, and what an unselfish thing to do. My father used to go from having a red wavy head of hair to cutting it into a crew cut and he'd say he was tired of being handsome and wanted to be cute for awhile.
