My Mom Cut

So it's no secret that my hair has been in dire need of a new style for at least the last six months (some would argue the last year.) But somehow I couldn't bring myself to get it cut. I mean I'm not afraid of short hair (anyone who's known me for any significant amount of time has probably seen me with VERY short hair at one point or another.) My fear was that I would look like a mom. More specifically that I would look like my mom. (And don't start with me on this. I know my mom is a wonderful beautiful person who doesn't look her age, it's not about that. It's about the fact that all women are resistant to turning into their mothers so I'm just exercising my right to that age old tradition.)

But today I finally took the plunge. Yes, I look like a mom. More specifically, yes, I look like my mom. My fears have officially been realized. I have a "mom do."

Oh my gosh! My jaw completely fell to the floor and stayed there til I found earlier pictures to confirm suspicions that the bangs were new too.

WOW! You cut off all that length and created bangs! You are so flipping brave. It looks great!

Truly, Cali, when I saw you tonight I just loved your new "do"! It looks really amazing on you. By the way, thank you again for your help tonight at YW. You did a great job!

I don't think the hair makes you look like a mom....I think it's the baby you tote around. :)
Great do..I love it.

LOVE IT!!!! You needed to update. The color looks fabulous too. It's o.k. to look like a mom. You're 30 and you are one! But I don't think you look like our mom. Jacob thinks Jesse looks like our mom the most (shhh don't tell her.)

I already know that I look like mom. Cali and I talked about it while I was cutting her hair. That just means I got the looks of the family. Hee Hee
