Shelby's New Do (AGAIN)

Shelby went from this:
to this on Friday:
She has been saying for a while that she wanted her hair cut "short". Last time we cut it, it was pretty short. She plead her case and talked her father and I into letting her go a bit shorter than last time she had it cut. I spoke of creative control for young girls back when she wanted her hair cut before. I decided that hair was not a battle I wanted to fight too much as long as it was a reasonable request. Who wants to run marathons on treadmills? It will do you no good. I must say that when the first cut was made in the back, it looked VERY short. I just knew my husband would have a fit. But, upon seeing the finished product, he was okay with it. It was a bit shorter than he had anticipated, but over all we are all happy with her new hair cut. The "bob" is a cute look for her and she's very excited about it, so that is what matters in the end. She is stoked about going to school tomorrow so everyone can see her new hair do.

The great thing about hair is that it grows out. If she wants it longer later, she can do that. No problem!
