Locks of Love

Kenna has been asking to get her hair cut for quite some time. I am always somewhat hesitant because my girl loves to twirl her hair...she always has. From the time Kenna was a baby and had enough hair to hold, flip, twirl she has been all about it. I really wanted her to think about this instead of just rushing off and doing it. After all, if you know Kenna and you know how long her hair is it will take a loooong time to grow back. Thursday evening I had a hair apt and Kenna begged to come along. Well, she had gymnastics so she couldn't but she begged me to schedule her an apt to get her hair cut. She wanted it like mine. How sweet but how short! I mean especially compared to how much she has. I was okay with the thought, Josh not so much. He was afraid his baby would look too grown up. Alas today we did it. Kenna got her hair cut. Let just say at least 10" maybe more didn't measure it. It's adorable! She loves it!!! As we were walking in knowing that Kenna wanted a shorter "do" i was compelled to not waste a gift. We've thought about locks of love for a long time but this was such a short notice thing that we didn't have much time to research it...or to even check if our salon did that. When we got there and Kenna climbed into the chair I asked my awesome stylist if they participated in the program. She said YES, and that just made it all seem right! Daddy handled it so well especially after finding out his princess' hair would help another little princess out there somewhere. Kenna had so much hair we got 4 ponytails worth! I didn't take my camera because I was running behind and didn't want to be late but the stylist let me take a picture with her camera so when I get the pictures I'll post them. For now I will add pics of a before picture and after. **okay maybe i'll add pictures later since something is up with blogger**no spell check either so forgive me if i spelled something wrong...i love sp ck**

What a sweet story! My best friend (since 7th grade) was growing her hair out for Locks of Love. Took her so long. The irony of that...she was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of this year. I went with her 2 days before her first Chemo treatment and she had just enough length to do it!!! What a wonderful cause! Your Princess should feel very good to help another Princess be able to feel beautiful!
