The big chop...

I'm not sure if it was pure laziness or just having no clue what to do with it, but for the past two years or so, I've had really long hair. At least it's really long to me...past my bra line. I knew that I didn't want to cut my hair when I was pregnant because I've heard horror stories from other mothers who did a big chop off and their face seemed to grow three sizes. I knew I wouldn't want to do much with my hair after having Isaac, so I just kept it simple and pulled back...all the time.

I don't know if it was the rolling over and pulling my hair at night, the constant "ponytail" headaches, the "uff, what am I going to do with my hair?" questions, or just needing something different that finally did it, but two weeks ago I chopped 11.5 inches off of my head. My trusty hairdresser put it in a ponytail and chopped it right off. I donated the 11.5 inches to Pantene's "Beautiful Lengths" program so I'm so glad my unruly hair will benefit someone who needs it.

So here it is! I'm still trying to retrain my "automatic pump" of the shampoo in the morning (dang, the first morning I did my normal three pump and had wayyyy too much) but it feels so much better to have all of that hair off of my head. That and I won't miss the massive amounts of hair on my bathroom floor.
