Battle Over Brushing Hair - The Hair Lost


This was long time in coming.
She didn't want to put it in a pony tail.
I didn't want it in her mouth
or hanging in her eyes.

Problem
Solved.

We killed three birds with one stone.
Part way through the cutting she threw the mirror,
though, 
which might tell you how well she liked the idea. 

James was outside. He came in while I was cutting it.
After the first glance he wouldn't look at her.
I asked, "So, what do you think?"
He looked away.
"It's kind of short."
"I know but what do you think?"
He glances her way...
looks down,
and says,
"It's kind of cute."

I cut my girls hair short if they are old enough to comb/brush it and they won't. I hate snarly hair. My 7yo asked if she could let it grow long and I said, as long as you brush it and I don't have to get out snarls... she sunk her head... she doesn't like to comb her hair. ;p

Which is where Hope's dreds went. The battle over haircare is NEVER worth it.
