Thirteen






Our youngest had her 13th birthday. She wanted to cut her hair in a "teenager style" for her birthday. I soooo didn't want her to cut her hair. I was afraid it would make her look older. Surprise! It didn't. Oh, everyone told her she looked older, but I saw her little 3rd grade face-when she had bangs and shorter hair. Her big sibs all thought the same thing. But noone has told her. We just let her posture in the mirror, tossing her hair and feeling thirteen.
It sure is easier for this mama to take when the baby still looks like her little girl!

oh so nice. i think she looks absolutely great. whoever did her hair really gave her a pretty look and i even think younger...but don't tell her that. if she is like my two were they loved finally being a real "teen". it's ok mom, no matter how old, she will always be your baby we just keep it on the down low. have a great weekend. ~janel

My oldest daughter is turning 13 next month. Scary. She's been trying to act like a teenager for a few years now. I don't remember doing that. Why are girls so anxious to grow up now? Your daughter's new hair cut looks really cute.
