The Tale Of A VERY Brave Girl

A few years ago Hattie got an adorable haircut. She sat so still and was so good for the hairdresser that we felt safe getting her a very short pageboy/bob. She wore it like that for a while and we loved it because it kept her from chewing on her hair. Also, because it just fit her so well.

Then about a year and a half ago we were at a shop getting a trim. They were running a special and had balloons and such to get people in the door. As Hattie sat for her cut a lady behind us was blowing up balloons ... can ya see where this is going?

As expected, one of them popped with a loud burst. Hattie whipped her head around to get a see what made the noise. Unfortunately, the girl was going for the bangs at that second and Hattie ended up getting stabbed just above the inside corner of her right eye. She screamed, jumped up and ran away and that was the last of our easy haircuts...

Until today.


Mrs. Sue very bravely agreed to take on the task.

Hattie knows and like Sue and so we figured it was worth a shot! I went first and prepared her for her turn coming up next. And, as amazing as it sounds, when her turn came, the girl could not get in that chair fast enough!

And she sat like a CHAMP the entire time!

So, of COURSE she got a reward ...

A little drum time! She is FASCINATED with the drums! It is always the first thing she goes for if she makes it up to the stage at church and she would drum her little heart out if we let her!

And, sucker that she is, Mrs. Sue let her!
Here are a few shots of the finished project.... In an effort to fix the awkward attempt at bang cutting by the mama (yours truly) she had to leave pieces a bit longer to grow them out to the rest of the hair, but how cute is that cut?!?!
I LOVE the back of it!
And Hattie thinks it is a "beautiful haircut".
And, what more could I ask for?

I think even I would have been traumatized by that. It looks SO cute... give her a high five from me. :-D I want to do something similar to my youngest but I'm not sure I'm ready to get rid of her baby curls yet.
