"mommy I just want to be like you"...those words just melt your heart don't they. They are super sweet....until you "do" hair for a living, have recently chopped 10ish inches off your hair and your daughters are saying "mommy we just want to be like you" after showing you they have CHOPPED THEIR OWN HAIR. Well played daughters, well played.
Ok I'm back. Oh, you didn't know I left? Yep I've been gone for about an hour now. My children decided they needed to eat, imagine that! :) Ok, lunch done and cleaned up back to blog.
So my girls had been playing oh so sweetly all day I thought and it wasn't until later that night did I even realize they had really been playing Edward Scissorhands. We were getting ready to leave and I went to put Joslen's hair up and as she tossed her hair around she said "look momma, isn't my hair beeeeeautiful?"....my jaw dropped. Kenna walked in at that moment and said "mom, please don't make us look like boys." Joslen must of known she was in trouble because her next line was "momma, we just want to look like you!"....
See their LONG hair?! It had FINALLY grown out. I tried to explain to them that the mullet is NOT in style, and I am definitely NOT bringing it back. I haven't kept their hair short by choice. It has just never grown! You know those little girls will long flowing hair down the middle of their backs? The ones I was sure my precious girls were gonna be? Yeah, so not my girls. They didn't really even have hair until they were almost 3. Really. I promise. I'm not lying. This was their 2nd birthday.
See! No hair!
3rd birthday, finally some hair!
Anyhow. So off to the salon the next day we went. They were pretty concerned they were gonna end up with boy haircuts.
As you can tell they were SUPER UNHAPPY with their haircuts. (the italics was my attempt at expressing sarcasm). The words out of their mouths when we were done?
Mommy, we look just like you!
