i'm so upset...
for the past few weeks, daniel has been asking me if we could take danny and get his head shaved. well NO was the first thing that came out of my mouth. i was NOT for it at all!

it's funny, everyone here thinks we should, and everyone in wv thinks we shouldn't. of course, everyone in wv has never heard of doing that to a baby that young...

well i started thinking about it and tried to weigh the pros and cons if we would do it, or if we wouldn't. his hair is long-ish on top, but short everywhere else. and it's not growing. i would look at it and think it was, but it never got any longer.

so i decided to go ahead and just get it over with. the reason that mainly made up my mind was that if it's done, his hair will be all one length, and i won't have to worry about evening it out later.
and we went yesterday and had it done.

i sent lisa a text message and here's basically how the conversation went:

me: we cut the baby's hair. don't be mad
her: i am mad why in the world would you do that?
me: it'll all grow out even now. it's not like it won't grow back.
her: his hair would have grown anyway. what's wrong with his hair? i know that's your kid but that was dumb

and i guess her saying it "was dumb" just hit me the wrong way. i wish i never would have told her. the reason i did was because i knew i would have recent pictures of him up and she would've noticed. it just really hurt my feelings. i feel like she could have put it another way and not said it like that.
