Locks of Love & a Brand New 'Do!

After months and months of growing out her hair for Locks of Love, the BIG DAY finally arrived for Abby to get those long locks CUT!!!

 4/13 - Yes, she is even wearing a Rapunzel nightgown. And no, that was not planned for the picture. :)

She was already super excited from pulling yet ANOTHER tooth that morning so going to the hair salon to get a new 'do was the icing on the cake!

Mom, on the other hand, had major butterflies in her stomach...


 Especially as the hairdresser took the scissors and snipped 11 whole inches!!!


 Amazingly enough, I didn't cry! I know. I was shocked too. But seeing Abby's big toothless grin knowing that she had finally reached this goal to donate her hair...this mama felt pretty proud, I must say.  


On the way home, we stopped to pick out some new headbands since Abby will now be able to do her hair ALL BY HERSELF as she keeps reminding me. She did, at least, let me blow dry it a little for her "AFTER" picture.

Thank you for your shining example, sweet girl. You have such a giving heart and teach me so much each day. I am so grateful to be your mom. I sure do love you!
