    I Did It!

    Can't quite still believe it myself, but I really did cut it off! Number 1 was the winner from the pics in my older post below - it's SO short! But I am actually enjoying it, I have NEVER had my hair CLOSE to this short!

    I haven't gotten any pics yet that I feel capture how cute I think it looks. It must look better live, because it looks kind of not-cool in pictures, I think, compared to how I think it looks for real. Or maybe the pics are more accurate and no one has the heart to tell me it's a dumpy middle-aged 'do.

    Anyway, without further ado, here are some comparison shots:

    It had been 13 months since my last haircut. Ready? Set? HAIRCUT!

    So now, for your viewing pleasure . . . the new 'do!

    Crazy, huh? Like I said, I think it looks cooler than the pics, but maybe I'm just kidding myself. Everyone has said they really like it, and for once, I can't say that no one even notices that I got my hair cut.

    Certainly not my son, he DEFINITELY noticed . . . he wouldn't let me hold him, touch him, talk to him, or be near him for the rest of the day after I got it cut! Broke my heart! MAJOR re-adjustment required for Jackson! You could tell by his facial expression, he just couldn't "get it" that this was still Mommy. He would look at me and get SOOO upset - he would just cry and cry and only wanted Daddy! Daddy enjoyed some time being Jackson's hands-down favorite, but in the end, the one with the boob came back into first place, ha ha. He's completely over it now and likes to touch my hair. . . now that I think about it, maybe he was just pissed that he didn't have my hair to yank and pull anymore! It was certainly one of his favorite pass-times.

    Greg is, as always, very supportive, and says it's cute, and refuses to say he doesn't like it, but I'm secretly pretty sure he does NOT prefer me with short hair. I've assured him it will grow back...someday. Samantha loves it and tells me repeatedly, "Mom, I love your new hair!" That's my girl, stroke Mommy's ego some more. She's always honest, right?

    Your hair looks so cute! Tim and I both fully approve! You will love having it short in the summer - it dries so much faster and is so much cooler! Yay!

    No, I think you have it all wrong. I dont think Greg "secretly" doesnt like it. I think he is worried about how F**KING Hot you look. You know maybe some short, fat, Mook will come sweep you off your feet. You know, You do have the ultimate "Soccer Mom" hair cut now. I am sure Greg Loves it, do not confuse not being use to it for not liking it. You made a huge change. Give it time, then he will never think of you with anything but short hair. I'm just gald you didnt "Sinead" yourself.
    See you soon, SEXY MAMMA
