My youngest daughter wants to get her hair cut.
She actually has made the request to have her hair all shaved off, like her brother did this summer for 'wilderness' camp.
Her reasoning is that if she gets it cut really short then I won't bother her about brushing it any more.
She does have a point. My son's hair was so short this summer that I couldn't bug him about keeping it neat, there simply wasn't enough of it.
But on my daughter?
I think not.
I am however thinking of taking her to my hair-dresser and letting her get a cute 'bob' cut with bangs.
But I must admit I'm reluctant. She lives in an eight year old world of Hannah Montana 'wanna be's'. Just about all her buddies have that messy scraggly shoulder length hair 'look'.
She wants to be different.
I'm worried about tomorrow.
Is eight years old too young to agonize over radical hair cut choices? Can an eight year old have hair cut remorse?
I think I'm about to find out – the hard way.
