Day 5: Buh-Bye Long Hair
My girls have been asking for haircuts for a while now. I finally found a Saturday without plans and made the appointments.
Today was the big day. Emma, who's hair reached her waist, had decided she wanted to cut it near her shoulder. She also knew she had long enough hair that she would be able to donate it. She was pretty excited to be able to donate it and help someone who needed it.
Maddie wanted her hair cut to her chin. She had it like that a couple years ago and really liked it. This was what she'd been asking for. As we sat in the salon today waiting for our turn, I realized that she probably had long enough hair to donate hers as well. When I told her I thought she had enough her little face lit up!
Our turn arrived and two happy girls climbed up into the chairs. 30 minutes later I was walking two girls to my car that I barely recognized with goofy grins from ear to ear.
It's the little things like haircuts that we often take for granted. We had a fun morning together at the salon today. Nothing crazy or unusual. Nothing overly special. Just a mom and two of her girls spending some time together. These are the little things I know I will look back on and miss someday.
