Here’s a re-cap of a conversation I had with a girlfriend (not Abby) a few days ago that made me remember not to judge … just to accept … because accepting leads to appreciating and appreciating makes us happy (I’m paraphrasing):
Why is your daughter’s hair so short?
Um. It just is.
But she’s such a pretty girl.
But … did you cut it?
I, uh … I cut her bangs a few weeks ago.
What about the back.
Have you ever cut it?
Nope … just the bangs.
How old is she?
And that’s it?
But she’s so cute! Like a Fairy.
Here’s what I hope is the takeaway from the conversation … my little one doesn’t have a ton of hair … not because I cut it … but because that’s just how much hair she has .. and regardless of how much hair she has … she’s still beautiful. She just doesn’t have long hair. She might even be a fairy. At the very least, that’s her plan for Halloween.
