I'm proud of my little girl tonight. I told her this morning that I would take her to get a hair cut because she was over due. During our conversation she asked me how much length was needed to donate to locks of love. I told her 10 inches and she wanted to know if she had enough. I told her she would have to ask the hairdresser. She was really torn because it had taken her awhile to grow her hair out and she was liking her hair long. I told her it was completly her decision to make and that she could think about it. I really didn't think she was going to go for it but she surprised me by saying yes while sitting in the chair. Her hairdresser was really good about explaining exactly how much hair she would cut off and where her new hair line would be. You could tell she was really nervous but I stayed totally out of it. I really wanted her to make the decision. I think what helped her finally decide is knowing what her hair would be used for and where it would go. When the hairdresser cut off the last part of her ponytail, her face went red and my heart sank a little bit because I thought she was going to cry. I think because all the hairdressers were giving her lots of attention she was able to pull out of it (it was only for just a second) and then she was all smiles after that. It was a great experience for both of us and I think she came away looking as cute as ever. Great job Stevie!!!

Way to go Stevie! You look so cute! When Megan read this she asked if she had 10 inches of hair she could donate. What a great example you are.
