A little hair "incident"

So, I accidentally chopped off Ada's hair last night.  It was such a mistake.  I know you are wondering how I could accidentally chop her hair off.  It was wet, and it's curly, and I meant to just give it a trim.  It turns out I can not cut hair evenly, so I kept trying to even it up, until we ended up with a short-haired girl.

The good news is that I really think the length is cute on her.  I have actually wanted to try a short cut on her for a while, but I loved her long, curly hair, and I didn't have the nerve to cut it short, so it's a "happy accident" of sorts.  I was feeling a little sick over it last night, though.

The only problem is that it desperately needs to be "cleaned up" by someone professional, but we are having no luck getting Ada to agree to that.  We made it into a place today, but, again, that resulted in lots of tears from Ada.  Luckily her hair is very curly, so it is forgiving of my mistakes.

Ada LOVES her new hair cut, and she is so confident with it.  Scott, who loved her long hair, is still upset over it, I think.  I keep telling him he has to forgive me;) 

And, by the way, that picture you see above was taken at 8:30 this morning.  My house was that messy by 8:30 am.  Oh man.  We were headed out the door to an open house for the Homeschool group we will be joining next year (Classical Conversations), which is super exciting, and I will post more about that later.  Ada did not actually need a backpack this morning, but she insisted that she couldn't go to "school" without it.  Anyway...I just had to post about Ada's big hair cut.

I love it! It is on her what that first short haircut was on Ellie - granted that now I prefer Ellie's long hair - but there's something about that young age. I did the same with Kate when she was about that age. Very becoming. I saw the images you texted me this morning - I tried later to call you. I really like it! Very very mature looking Ada and I bet it's boosted her confidence!

Ada reminds me of my grandaughter when she was little,she also had curly hair. Your daughters hair is pretty short like that. And as long as she is happy,well that's really what matters. I am following your blog, you are welcome to follow mine as well. Blessings jane
