Wordless Wednesday — First Haircut

by Janice


Olivia’s First Haircut

Most children have had their hair cut before they are in kindergarten. But, not my Olivia. Olivia’s hair has taken its sweet time to grow and I just couldn’t part with one millimeter of it.

Finally, at five and a half years old, I gave in and let scissors snip away some of my daughter’s baby soft hair. Olivia was thrilled — albeit a little scared that the hair dresser might slip and cut her.

Of course, for the finishing touch, Olivia asked the hair dresser to paint on a little temporary pink. A girl can always use more pink.


What is Your Weekly Photo?

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I usually just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a thumbnail linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Aw, she is adorable! My daughter is about the same age as yours (turning 6 this summer) and she got a first hair cut a few months ago. I think I was more nervous than she was!

What a sweetie! She’s too cute. I haven’t taken our 2 1/2 year old for a hair cut yet, and don’t know when I will. I can’t bear to part with her curls.

Ah yes. Pink is a good thing and Olivia is adorable! Love her new ‘do’! My grand daughter’s hair is still baby fine at age 7 although she’s had a few haircuts because of styles she and her brother have given her themselves! Ooooooo

Through your blog I can relate my childhood moments with your daughter. I remember my days when my mother took me for a hair cut and I started crying because I want to grow my hairs but I think somewhere my mother was right.
