Our life has certainly been full of the unexpected, but there is one moment, although not fun, that I antcipated would be in our future at some point, and on Friday night, while my husband was out of town, it happened.
I thought I would make the night special for the girls, "slumber party with a movie in mommy's bed!" Even I was excited. But, I am not great with technical things and I was trying to get a movie from amazon to work on our TV upstairs. It wouldn't work, so I went downstairs to get the computer and figure it out. I was downstairs for maybe 5 minutes........
you know this is going somewhere not good.
I ran back up with the computer and what do I find. .....
Norah, with ALL OF HER HAIR CUT OFF!!!!!!!!
You have got to be kidding me!!! Ahhhhhhhh. Norah, looked mortified, she knew she was caught, you can't really hide a hair chop. Maya was mortified too, she just said, " NORAH, you DO NOT look like Rapunzle.
I just started to cry, which made Norah start to cry. I was pretty upset.
For me it was so much disappointment. Norah has never ever had her hair cut, the bottom of her hair was the hair from when she was a baby, from when Carrisa was her mommy. I had in fact made an appt for Norah to get her very first special hair cut on December 9th..... I know children do this, cut their own hair, and I actually expected that of all my children Norah would be the one to do this. But really, the first hair cut, the special one, the one that had been waiting 3.5 years?
And yes, to me it was bad. It was just so chunked on one side! My friend Lindsay came over, well, to evaluated the damage and be moral support. She kept looking at it telling me, "it's not that bad, I have seen worse." Such a sweet friend, so reassuring, but I couldn't get over how chunked it was on one side see
Very mullet/rocker like
I also just felt like a bad mom, I must have left the scissors on my desk, that was totally my fault. Things aren't always easy with Norah, and I am constantly praying for wisdom and understanding with her, and this was the end of a very hard day, the culmination of disappointment and failure was at a high. Sigh....
Sorry sis, I didn't want the first cut to be this way either.
My friend Celine (who always does my hair & was scheduled to do Norahs) was out of town!! Of Course, if she was in town I would have driven Norah to her house that night, but alas, not the case. So a friend of mine, sweet Sarah who is also a stylist came to the rescue and scheduled an appt for Norah, for Saturday.
Come Saturday morning I was feeling a lot better and just giggling and laughing at Norah, who kept saying she was a "princess" and all I could see was her chunked hair.
We did a little photo shoot
|I actually really like this photo, crazy hair and all|
|Yep, she got to the left side too|
and then we went to get her hair fixed
|Sarah was sooo sweet the whole time, she kept saying, "silly silly girl"|
And the After
What can I say, she is her mothers daughter and now she looks exactly like her too
