Yesterday I picked up Audrey a little early from daycare. I told her we were going to do a something special just the two of us. She immediately started dancing around and jumping for joy. She ran up to the daycare director and told her, "Miss Laura! Me and my mom are going to do something special!" When Miss Laura asked what exactly we would be doing, Audrey answered with cheerful enthusiasm, "I don't know!" I told her we would be going to get her hair cut, which she had never had done professionally before. She was sooooo excited!
Here she is before ...
And during ...
We were at the cutest little children's hair salon. As Audrey rightfully noted, there was lots of pink.
Audrey had about four inches trimmed off the bottom and bangs cut. The stylist kindly informed me that my previous attempts to cut Audrey's bangs (a full year ago) had probably messed up Audrey's hair for the foreseeable future. What is it about motherhood that makes us think we are suddenly gifted with the ability to cut hair?
Also, check out Bud's new 'do! Alex cuts Bud's hair because apparently fatherhood actually does give men the magical ability to cut hair.
