Goldie Locks

We have our very own little Goldie Locks. Her name is Isabel and she's 3 years old. She has the most gorgeous blond hair; it's silky with amazing low-lights and highlights...it's what grown women pay fortunes to achieve.
Here is Al blow drying her hair (enlarge this picture for real detail)

However, with her hair being this long, she always seems to look like the picture below, not the pictures above.

There's always food and who knows what else in her hair which makes it impossible to brush. I keep telling my husband she needs it cut and he insists she just needs more conditioner. Isabel screams anytime you come near her with a brush, but my husband refuses to allow me to cut it. It took him 4 years for him to allow me to take Lillee to get her hair trimmed. I tried trimming it at home once and he did not speak to me for 2 full days so I knew this was a serious subject for him and not worth pushing. I figure I have one more full year of begging before we'll see a change in Bel's hair.

Al took Bel out for her dental appt today and turns out the dental office had no power. So they rescheduled the appointment and went for another date....this time she didn't get her nails done, she got her hair done :) See below:

Yes folks, I nearly fell over when she walked in the door. Al never discussed this with me, he did not call me on the way home to prepare me, he just stood there staring at me as I grasped for words...none came. I literally stood there unable to speak. Not sure whether I loved it or hated it because I did not have a chance to prepare for it. I came around after a minute or so and LOVE her new do! And I really look forward to no screaming while brushing and not having to wash it constantly just to keep her from looking the part of a rag-a-muffin.

Cute! I wish Abby would let us cut hers- she has outgrown the age where I have any say in it

Adorable! I think it'll be a lot more manageable.
