When Boredom Gets the Best of Me

Okay, so I guess technically I am not really bored. I do have plenty of things to do. I was just not wanting to tackle the third load of laundry this morning. :)
Let's be honest, Josie's hair is just super thin. I have no idea how this can be. My hair used to break hair ties after only being wrapped around twice when I was a little girl. My hair is very thick, and full. Josie's though...not the case.
The problem is, Josie has a dream. Her dream is to grow her hair as long as Rapunzel's. She wants to have long golden locks of braided hair. I'm sorry, but it's not going to happen. Well, when she is four anyhow. It could get thicker as she grows, right? Someone please say that is? Anyone?
Today I finally convinced her to let me "trim" her hair a bit. Just so it will grow more evenly. Unfortunately she is a wiggler. Something I conveniently forgot from the last hair cut. So, her hair is significantly shorter than "Just a trim", but to my joy she actually likes it.

Here is a picture of Addie and Josie at the park a couple of weekends ago. Notice the thing, stringy wisps of hair?

A little "before" shot.

Here is the back of her new haircut.

Here is the front. To be honest, I don't even notice the hair. She has got one of those faces that just light up a room. Man oh MAN! I just LOVE that girl!

Wow - from the back she looks just like Emma (from that picture of when you cut Emma's hair)!

She is seriously such a cutie. You have got some hair cutting talent there, my friend!

LOVE the new hair! Yes it still may get a bit thicker. Both Hope & Faith's did. We can hope!

Tamara, my hair was very very thin and wispy as a little one....until I was about 9ish. Then especially from like 12 on, it's been thickkk and a completely different texture than it was. There is hope. ;)

And either way, just like you said...she'd be stinkin' beautiful even if she was bald!

I miss you guys.
