Well Miss I decided it was time to finally cut off her hair and donate it. We only needed to cut off 8" but when we got to the hairstylist's chair she said "A bit shorter, a bit shorter... there. that's good!" She ended up cutting off about 14"!!! What a change! I do have to admit, it is a pretty cute new do and I don't have to yell at her to brush her hair. She said, "Mom it's so easy to do!!!"
