Hair Today...Gone...uh...Today

The following photos were inspired by one thing and one thing only. Wait, make that two things: pain and whining. My girls let their hair grow pretty long. They both have gorgeous hair. But the chopping was inevitable. Why, you ask? If one was to enter my bathroom on any given morning between 6:30 and 7 am, one would witness the following:

Mommy: brushes daughter's hair oh so delicately and sweetly

Daughter: OUCH! OUCH! OUCH! YOU'RE HURTING ME!

Mommy (in snotty mommy know-it-all tone): Well I can cut it off for you and we won't have to deal with the tangles anymore

Daughter: No, I (ouch!) like it (ouch!) long (ouch!). STOP IT, MOMMY!

Mommy (no longer brushing so delicately and sweetly): Then you're just going to have to put up with the tangles every day. Now hold still. I know those tears are fake!

I'm omitting the rest because, 1. you probably can guess how it goes from there, and 2. you never know when a social worker might be reading.

At any rate, long hair or not, I think these girls are just pretty. dang. cute. You know you do, too.

Don't worry, I will come visit you in prison . . . that's what friends are for.

I am speed dialing right now . . .

You have the authorities on speed dial? Or is that the prison? Do tell.

Oooh, Locks of Love, anyone? Those are some looong ponytails. Now, I think you should let Hallie grow her bangs out. She has, what I call, "Kindergarten Bangs" (I have to ask my hairstylist to NOT give me that specific type of bangs when she cuts my hair). At any rate, they are very cute girls. When are they coming up here again? :)

BossyMommy said...

Around here, we call them "Mommy can't cut hair worth a crap" bangs. And she's 8. She can pull off the little girl bangs. I'm gonna let her for as long as I can.

Gosh! That's a buttload of hair they had! They look darling. Oh, and I can NOT believe that Hallie still has her baby teeth. What cuties.
Also, sorry about Friday night. I'm not used to Emmalee crying in the car along with Braddock talking and Jim ordering food all at the freaking same time. I about lost my marbles. I don't know how to take care of 2 kids.

BossyMommy said...

No worries. But I do hope you figure it out soon, since you DO have 2 kids. Plus Jim.

Kristi Smith said...

Bethany, "a buttload of hair"?!?!?!?

EEWWWW!

The Epps Fam said...

Hey, I must say I've improved upon my words. Growing up, my friends and I would always say, "Oh my, that is so butt cute" or "butt ugly". Don't ask why. I was weird. WAS is the key word.

Kristi Smith said...

Hey JITT J., I have a new nickname for your sister . . . "Buttload Bethany"!

Kristi Smith said...

I wish you could see me dancing to SexyBack when your blog comes up! ;)

hee-hee

Holly said...

I just had the SAME EXACT NOTION for the SAME EXACT REASON today while brushing The Pinkiest's(5) hair. That's so funny. Great mommies think alike?...
