Maddy came home from dancing and her hair was in a terrible knotted mess, even though it was in a ponytail, so I cut it. That’s right, I did it. I was sick of the knots, tears (hers) and sweat (mine) everytime I had to brush it out, so I got my sewing scissors and lopped off about two inches. Up to her shoulders. What do you know? The brush runs straight through it now and both Maddy and I were pretty pleased with the results. I know I am no hairdresser but it’ll do for now. It’s neat, all one length and can still go in a ponytail sans knots. Not bad for a non - practicing midwife!
