Abbye (my 2 year old) cut her hair Monday. No, we don’t have any scissors laying around! She used the baby fingernail clippers!! I found her with them and had her put them up. I vaguely remember her saying something about her hair. However, I really don’t remember what happened that caused me to not get more information from her! Soon after that we ate supper. As I was taking Abbye’s bib off, I noticed a long piece of hair had fallen on the bib. My first thought was very scary: Cancer! I know that it’s the chemo that causes the hair loss, but I guess with my grandpa dying a little over a year ago from cancer it’s still on my mind. (Thank you, Jesus, that our family is healthy and strong!)
Matt said that every girl cuts her hair sometime. I couldn’t argue…I did when I was young. I usually chose to do it before my birthday and Christmas — when the most pictures were taken!! However, since I found scissors and usually worked on my bangs, the damage was very noticable!! So, is this a rite of passage or something for girls!?! =)
(This song came to my mind when I was thinking of cancer. Have you hear Skin (Sarabeth) by Rascal Flatts? Wow! What a awesome, yet heart wrenching song! Here’s a link to the video…make sure you have Kleenex handy.
