we have been talking about it for weeks.
I first suggested it as she is reaching an age where she wants to be able to look after her own hair with washing, styling etc. and I could see she was struggling with the length.
She liked the idea but struggled with the thoughts about her closest friends at school having and wanting long hair. At this length, I would not allow her to wear her hair down when attending school. Head lice in Canberra have just been too much of an issue this year and I did what I could in tying her hair up and plaiting to minimise contact risk. This second week of holidays, she reached a more definite 'cut it' mentality. I was excited and nervous for her as I knew she would really feel and be aware of the difference this time.
So here is my Sweet Pea with her new Do.
It so perfectly suits her personality and we all love it, most importantly she loves it.
I'm proud she was able to overcome her own peer pressure perception and make a decision she is happy with.
Sorry for the flash photography. It has been consistently raining here and a bit wintry these last couple of days.
