Joni has freakishly thick hair, and regularly gets comments on it. When other moms act jealous, I always want to say, "Do you really want to dedicate half your life to brushing out tangly hair, washing it, conditioning it, brushing it out again, blow drying it (because if you don't, it'll never dry), and then curling, styling - only to start over again the next day?"
So when we were staying in Colorado with family, I made a decision one morning that I had had enough. Luckily, Joni's cousin, Ava, had just chopped her hair, so Joni was in agreement that it would be cool.
I did not encourage the diva look, I swear. I did, however, find it hilarious.
We cut off her 8 inches just in time.
