She then asked me if I would straighten her hair. So I did. I hate doing it though. She has beautiful curls and it makes me sad to straighten them out. After I did she was very matter of fact when she said to me "I want my hair like this" and demonstrated a short bob-ish hair style. I then proceeded to tell her that I couldn't cut her hair. And she said to me "yes you can, just get cut it straight across!"
All day she talked to me about having short hair. So after much talk about it today I decided she could do it.
So we marched over to my sisters house (who is my neighbor...isn't that clever?) and she agreed to give her a little chop chop.
Ava went through a gamut of emotions. Happy, scared, nervous, silly, excited, scared, silly...did I mention silly?!
Ava loves her new "Avie hair" and says she feels like "A New Ava".
I was sad that we cut off her curls but she has never had a hair cut so at some point we were going to have to cut the baby ends off. We will see once it's wet if it's curly...but for now it's just a cute little bob.
