Holy Short Haircut Batman!

When it comes to hair, I have zero attachment issues.... when it comes to my own hair, that is. My hair grows fast and I get bored so easily, it's nothing for me to, on a whim go in one day and get it cut super short. No biggie, it grows back. Evidentally when it comes to the Munchkin? I have issues. Husband and I have been "discussing" the future of the Munchkins hair for a couple of weeks now, we both agreed that it needed a cut. It was getting stringy, tangled and hard to manage. I was thinking a couple of inches, he was thinking chin length bob. I was then thinking he had lost his brain!! Cut her gorgeous long locks into a chin length bob? I've been looking at her little friends hair and getting inspired about how cute they look with their little bobs, but was still reluctant because I was afraid she was going to go from looking 3 to 13 with the snip of a scissor.

We went today and I told the girl what Husband wanted, and I told her what I wanted, then told her to meet in the middle. I really felt like I could get to the bob, a couple of inches at a time, but the thought of doing it all in one sitting made me physically sick to my stomach. Seriously. I can't explain it, I've never felt that way before, not even with her first hair cut.

A deep breath from me, and she pushed Munchkins chin down, and before I could speak, off it went. Off with her hair! Of course the under cut is always shorter, but I was fuh-ree-king out, watching all of those long pieces float to the floor. Silly, I know. Husband does not understand this at all, but he's a man. He says, "it's no biggie, it will grow back." Yeah, Yeah....

All in all, she looks ridiculously adorable and I know it's going to be so much easier to manage. Besides if doesn't grow back fast enough, I can always slip her a prenatal vitamin or 2.... right?

I present to you, a shorter haired Munchkin.
