The First Haircut

“What if they cut it all off? Like at the end of Tangled? I need my long hair!”

“I’m just telling them you need a trim,” I explained. “That’s a little bit of hair.” I held my thumb and index finger a little bit apart. “It’s like this much.”

Natalie gripped her hair. “I need it long like Rapunzel. Or I’ll cry.”

I gritted my teeth. I understood her concern but geez. “They won’t cut too much off.”

We headed to SuperCuts—I know I could have taken advantage of the free haircuts at JC Penney that is going on this month but I didn’t want to wait around for an appointment. At SuperCuts you can just walk in.

“Don’t cut a lot off. I need it long like Rapunzel,” Natalie told the hair stylist seriously.

“Of course,” the hair stylist replied, a little taken aback. She probably had taken a look at Natalie and thought, “She looks sweet!” And then after Natalie spoke she probably thought, “And she’s demanding!”
This was Natalie waiting to get her FIRST hair cut:



Yes. It was her FIRST ONE EVER.

I had never taken her because she always loved her long hair so I didn’t see the point. I only took her now because her ends looked dead and yuck.

She did really well.

The results?

Still long! Like Rapunzel.

  1. She's a gorgeous girl! My youngest wants to be a princess when she grows up, so your Natalie reminds me of her. If only being a princess brought in the cash! :)

  6. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. False sexual harassment charges (men are now afraid to even talk to women in the office because all it takes is one woman to make up a false sexual harassment charge and then the man's career is finished)

    4. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    5. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    6. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    99.9 percent of American and western women are liars, hypocrities, and criminals, who support women committing crimes against men. Women refuse to condemn their fellow women who destroy men's lives. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

  7. It's beautiful! I was forced to start cutting my daughter's hair when she was a little over a year old. She was born with a full head of hair, and then she lost most of it, and it started growing in funny. She had a mullet. Good times. But now we're growing it out like Rapunzel :)

  11. Wow, that boycott American Women comment is something!

    I always wanted long hair when I was little, but my mom always cut it short!

  12. Love the SPAM comment. *rolling eyes*

    Natalie's hair is perfect princess hair. Tell her she did a good job telling the hairdresser exactly what she wanted. That is always the hardest part for me.

  13. Bella has never had a haircut either! EVER! And her ends are shot!!!! Long like Rapunzel....*sigh*....I hear that too!

    But I'd have to drug her to get it done....

  14. Well, there are some girls that really love long hair, and Natalie is one of them. If you don’t want to cut her hair again because the ends look dead and messed up, start combing her hair from the bottom and slowly move upwards. Don’t comb her hair forcibly because it may lead to breakage or worse.
