Locks of Love

Our sweet little M decided she wanted to give her long gorgeous blonde hair to Locks of Love. I couldn't be happier with her decision to give to others. I just wish it wasn't her hair. I am way to attached to it and I know there are many moms out there that feel the same way. I had to make her appointment a month and a half early because I needed time to adjust to the idea. Now that it's here...I am left with no choice.


Mrs. Rachel was too cute. Thanks, Paula. She was so sweet with M. When she was all finished Mrs. Rachel said, 'She looks so grown up, Mom'. That's when the tears welled up in my eyes and I had to look strong. So, no, I didn't cry. I just got teary eyed thinking about my little girl growing up. It goes by so fast and I can't keep up. M is so excited about her new haircut. We all love it.
M, you are going to make some little person very happy.

Oh I love it! She is so beautiful. Don't you just love a nice clean cut though? I still say every time my kids get a hair cut they age. I LOVE the haircut!

I almost cried seeing her hair cut off - but it looks so cute. I am attached to her locks of hair! what a sweet heart to donate it.

What are a good mamma!

What a sweet thing of her to do! I would have cried; granted that London could actually grow her hair that long! She looks so, so cute!

What a sweet and very brave thing for her to do. There are so many girls in our ward that have done this as well. In fact, two of them have done it twice! It is so neat.
