Hair today, gone tomorrow

Well, the time has come to say good-bye "Princess Sammie" and Hello to "Dora Sammie". Of course, she has the hair I have always wanted (corn silky and straight). I, on the other hand, have straight in the front and wavy in the back (think Roseanne Roseannadanna)

Anyway, it was time to for a new do for Sam. It reached past her waist and it was not fun to maintain. It reminded me of the poem below. When we started talking about cutting her hair she was not having any part of it. Then I told her about the little girls who were sick and didn't have any hair. We went to Locks of Love and she got to see the girls without and with their "new" hair. She was on board. Our friends cuts our hair and she chopped off the 10" ponytail. I have to say as much as I loved her long hair, this is definitely more "her". Short and Sassy, yup, that's Sam.

Janella's Hair
Teresa Bateman
Janella's hair flies everywhere
And crackles full of static.
It leaps around
With bob and bound
And acts most acrobatic.
Janella's hair flies everywhere;
It's living on its own.
It leaves her head
To stay in bed
And giggles on the phone!
At school it said, "You knucklehead!"
The teacher was appalled.
Janella's in the office now
(and wishes she were bald).

She is adorable!!! Her new look is VERY cute!! And it's so wonderful that you gave her hair to locks of love - what a blessing for some sweet little girl. Also wanted to mention, you had asked about the roses in my yard and if I knew what kind they are - I don't know, I sure wish I did. They were here when we moved in - lucky us. Thank you so much for visiting me!
