On the Tuesday after she made her First Holy Communion, C decided it was time to get her hair cut. Daddy started the tradition (with a small "t") of letting the girls decide if they want short hair after they've made their First Holy Communion. This way they still look like a little girl on such an important day. He figured they are old enough at the age of reason to start taking a shower and washing their own hair, if they decide to have it cut. C had Grammy, who is a beautician, cut her hair before she left to go back up north. Grammy cut off about 12 inches of hair. C will be sending it away this week to the Locks of Love organization that makes wigs for kids who've lost their own hair through either cancer treatments or the disease Alopecia.
I think it made Daddy a little sad to see her cut off all her hair. I'll admit I really haven't gotten used to the new look, yet. However, knowing that her hair is going to be used to make a little boy or girl very happy, is a consolation. C looks so grown up now with her new hair cut. I thought she'd regret it, but she still says she loves it.
