My visit with Jes was good. She went home on Sunday, and is right now flying her way to Washington for a 2 week visit with her family there, including our youngest sister. She talked me into letting her straighten my hair while she was here - something I'd never done before. It was weird - I've never seen my hair actually straight before. It didn't look bad though, just different. See?
Compare that to this - my hair fresh from the bath one night a couple months ago:
Just a slight difference :)
Speaking of hair, I'm at a loss what to do about Joshua's. He wants long hair. I'm fine with that, but in the meantime, what do I do? He's growing out a buzz cut. He has very thick hair. I've been trimming it around the back and around his ears, waiting for the top to get long, but this is just not a great look. He's got so much hair, it's starting to make his head look weird. Here's a couple of pictures, so you can maybe get the idea?
Ignore the dirty face please. You can see the shorter layers on top here.
In this outtake from our Christmas Eve picture you can see how thick his hair is, and how it's making his head look odd. Joshua is the one who wants long hair, and while I have no problem with it, I just don't know how to get there from here without a year of funny looking hair! And considering that his birthday is in 2 weeks, I'd like something decent looking for his 4 year pictures, that won't completely mean starting over. I think what I'm aiming for is something like these boys. (BTW - that's a good blog. She's got 7 kids, and still manages to stay sane!)
Anyway, any and all opinions welcome. On Woo's or my hair :) And I'm officially out of time for this entry, I've got to go get my big kids from school!
