When her hair is wet, it reaches her tailbone. It was getting pretty hard to manage, so we decided to go for it, and get it cut (against her Auntie and Grammie's insistent pleas of NO, DON'T YOU EVER CUT HER HAIR!
Well, I'm sorry loved ones. I had to do it. It was time.
We had been prepping Riley for awhile. You never know how a toddler will be, day to day. If you have raised a toddler, or are in the process, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.
I made the appointment at our local Supercuts. I told Riley she could sit up high in a very special princess chair. Today, she decided that she was Snow White. Snow White was oh so very brave! What a trooper!
Although, she was a little apprehensive at first. How much do you want cut off her hair, the nice lady asked. Well, she is 3 1/2, so how about 3 1/2 inches? Sounded about right.
Brushing those gorgeous locks!
She thought it was pretty cool that she could watch in the mirror.
Look of shock? Hmmm, I don't know.
She loved her animal cover-up!
SEE! I told you it was SUPER LONG!
To get her to look down, they asked her to use her chin, to hold the comb!
Look at those locks on the floor! I already felt like a crazy Mommy, snapping all those pictures. I thought I would really look out of my mind, if I asked for some of her hair!
BUT, I was so thrilled when I saw the hairdresser grab
a curly piece of heaven,
and tapeit to a certificate!
Talk about, making my day!
I then took her to Tim Horton's to celebrate. She, of course, picked the prettiest doughnut, for a pretty-princess-girl!
Pink Sprinkles, or (Pink Sparkles), as she called them.
I EVEN splurged and got her chocolate milk!
Mommy got coffee. Now, it's NO Dunkin Doughnuts. . .
but I AM partial to the name :-)
What a special Mommy-Daughter Date!
She was thrilled!
And so was I!
