I'm a 'new' Mom!!

I love my long hair. I really do. I didn't think I needed a hair cut. The 7 inches I chopped off of it a few weeks ago worked well. What I think I needed was a professional hair dye job so I stopped feeling so blah and old.



My hair was looking dry, brittle and grey. So most of the time it looks like this....




Yesterday I saw pictures of myself beside some of my more put together friends and I could not saying to myself ''really? Do I really look THAT bad?"


So this morning I started cutting my hair again....




I failed miserably so before I ruined it more I called my mom's hairdresser.






I did it. I now sport a mommy do. Let's face it. I'm a mom and I'm not getting any younger. I look like I'm in my 30's with long hair, so I might as well look nicer while still looking 30. I don't think I have a problem with my hair...it is the face that accompanies it.....sigh.
Me trying to look 20 something is as stupid as my Grandmother trying to look 80 instead of 90, or my daughter trying to look 7 instead of 8.
So now I look like this....












And it makes looking at my ageing face much more tolerable ;)
