So, the "after" do...

Weeellll, as expected, I look nicer and more feminine with long hair, and this is kinda ridiculously short. But I wanted them to donate the long locks to the cancer patients, and to do so they needed at least 10 inches, so I boldly told the hairdresser to go as high up as the ears. And, honestly, I don't mind looking like a 15-year-old boy for the time being, since it's MUCH easier to deal with. And in the next few months, as it grows, it will be fun to play with other styles.

Still, I had forgotten how unruly my hair is. ("You can't style it; you can only hope to contain it!" By the way, what is that quote, originally? I can't remember.) This photo is after taming down with gel and water. In the morning, it looks like I did a short Kim Novak style, then took a motorcycle ride without a helmet, then fell off and slept in a ditch. And climbed out through a hedge backward.

It's entertaining, at least.

It's adorable!!!! And so very smart with an infant about. My hair falls below my shoulders, and every baby I have ever picked up has been immediately compelled to wind spit-laden fingers into my hair and YANK. Of course, getting loose is kind of like trying to untangle one wire coat hanger from a pile of hundreds... and by the time you pry one hand loose, the other one is embedded to the scalp. So I think you're supremely wise. :-)

At least you have body to your hair, and it's a lovely color. If mine were that short, I'd look like Annie Lennox in her Eurythmics days, only far less sexy.

Thank you! And yep, far too many times lately have I carefully laid the kiddo down on a bed or changing table, coaxing, "Let go of the hair. Let go of the hair." I'm putting my long earrings away before anything happens with THAT. Eep.
