A little off the top, please...

When Bryan came to pick me up after my retreat at Jamers' lake house, I received quite a shock. At some point in the previous 24-hours, Brigitta (4) had decided to giver herself a makeover. In one of those "I have no idea what possessed you" moments, she had managed to hack off half her hair.

I tried (poorly) to remain calm when I saw her. Not only did she previously have beautiful long, curly hair, but she was the only one whose hair I could play with. Emelie and Meghan are mostly too old, and Heidi's hair is, well, difficult. We both loved the time spent with me making her hair look like a princess'. I'll have to search the Girly Do's archives to find some "dos" for short hair while I keep repeating to myself "It'll grow back..."

Last August with her "Messy Buns"

A look at the damage done

After I trimmed things up. Cute, but we all keep thinking that she doesn't look like our Bitta.


  1. She looks so much older! Wow.... It will grow back but so sad so sad. At least you fixed it for her! :)

  2. Oh my goodness! She does not look like little Bitta! Can you use miracle grow on hair? Just a thought! :)
