I decided to cut a few inches off my hair the other day and get some highlights. When I got home Joni looked... I don't know... shocked, I guess. She asked, "Mamma, what did you do to your hair?" It made me nervous because she didn't sound very pleased. So I asked, "I got a haircut. Is it pretty or not pretty?" She said, "It's pretty! Can I get a haircut, too?" So the next day I took the plunge and cut it myself. Her hair stays nice a LOT longer when it's shorter.
