Phoebe’s Short Hair Plan

 

“You WHAT?????  You want to CUT your long hair you’ve spent the last 2 years growing out?!?!?!”

IMG_4076That was my reaction to my girly girl fairy child Phoebe dropping the news on my busy Mamma plate last week.  She had pictures and all.  She didn’t just want to trim it shorter for summer – she wanted it SHORT.  I couldn’t believe it.  Mainly – I just didn’t want her to REGRET it.

Haven’t we all been there??  You see a rockin shorter cut and want that spunkiness.   Phoebe persisted.  She was convinced.  I was not.  But she’s always been her OWN person\fairy.  I knew that SHE knows her own mind.  What a great attribute for a kid!!!   I never had that when I was little.  So I made the appointment.

Once we were there, and she told the stylist what she wanted – every woman’s eyes got big and they looked at me with the understanding that THEY knew my fear.

She did great.  I was more nervous than she was.  She with every scissor cut, she got more giddy.13428553_10153629113350205_8784091843992277924_n13445529_10153629113380205_4575483157250071097_n

She also wants to donate the 15 inch pony tail to Wigs for Kids – a great non profit that provides wigs for very sick children. (CLICK HERE for more information about this organization and how you can donate, or you can go to www.wigsforkids.org)

Meanwhile, she has the face to pull this cut off!!  In fact, she ROCKS it.  It makes her look a bit more grown up L.  In an effort to continue “selling” me on the idea afterwards, she said “Mom, think of all the money we’ll save on shampoo.”

Jodi and Murphy, Enjoy your self assured girls. They are rare, any young person that stands alone not following the pack is a super person in my book. Be assured the wonderful values you have taught will be with them forever. look forward to many more joyful surprises.

Your girl Phoebe is rockin’ her new “do”. Way to go girl! And you did a good thing in the process…wigs for kids with cancer. You are a rare gem in today’s world and mom and dad are hopefully, more than probably, very proud of their young lady!
