My daughter has been letting her hair grow long. She wants to look like Rapunzel, she says. It is almost down to her waist… golden and gorgeous.
I am quite jealous.
And, secretly, rather proud.
However, there is this certain part of a certain Disney version of Rapunzel where her hair gets cut and it changes from golden blonde to brown…
My daughter had to try it out at school yesterday.
Now there is a very big chunk of hair missing from the right side of her head. Very big.
I cannot be mad. Hair does grow back, after all. Secretly, I am proud of how ballsy was to chop her hair off and I am proud of her curiosity. Truthfully, I feel bad for her now that she knows her hair is not magical. HOWEVER, her school program is on Friday and Santa is visiting tomorrow and there will not be time to get that hair “fixed” beforehand. It is going to require a professional and I just cannot rationalize canceling patients for my daughter’s vanity and my own bitter pride.
So if you happen to see her before Saturday…. yes, I know. Just pretend it isn’t there…
