A month or so ago, I’d gently planted the seed with the girls about growing out their bangs. I think they look perfectly adorable with their now-standard cuts, but I am guessing they won’t want bangs forever…and they’re painful to grow out…and we might as well do it when they’re younger…and summer is probably the best time to start.
Baby B was very open to the idea. She talked about how she could pull her hair back to play soccer. She was sold.
Baby A was not very excited, though. She’s sometimes resistant to change, and I think that’s probably what was driving her reaction.
I continued to market the idea to both girls ahead of our haircut appointment last week. B continued to be excited, and A continued to balk. I even got our hairdresser in on the idea, and she talked it up as an adventure.
When it came time to make the cut (ahem), Baby A was adamantly against it. I didn’t push her any further. And so, here we are…the beginning of different hairstyles. Gulp.
Baby B is learning the ropes of barrettes and hairbands. Baby A has shown some slight interest, seeing B pick out some cute accessories. She’s still loving her bangs, though, and that’s fine with me.
