Notes from a New Mom: This is seriously an amazing story -- amazingly ridiculous, that is. I came home from work the other day, and my husband had just finished chopping off our 1-year-old's golden hair. To make things worse, she is a girl! I could sort of understand possibly trimming a boy's hair, but a girl's?! No.
"She had, like, a mullet!" he said, when I began screaming about why the hell he would just take a pair of scissors and cut off her beautiful hair. "She needed a trim!"
"SHE IS 1!" I yelled. "Her hair was gorgeous and just hadn't grown out all even yet!"
There are stories, of course, about toddlers and kids cutting off their own hair, so I guess my husband was acting like a toddler. I know it's just hair, but my daughter now looks ridiculous. (My husband, by the way, is a real estate agent; he has no business cutting any kind of hair!)
I am so pissed I don't know what to do. For many months prior to this, my daughter had worn little caps because she was bald. Then her hair started growing in -- this beautiful, honey-colored, soft, whispery hair. And now it's gone. He didn't just TRIM, he CUT: He cut her bangs, he cut the back of her hair; he cut all of her hair off, not just the part that looked like a "mullet." (It didn't look anything like a mullet, by the way.)
I loved putting her hair in little pigtails or putting in a little clip to the side. Now I can't do that anymore.
Seriously: Sometimes men are just ridiculous.
