Well after growing my hair out for over 9 months it's over long enough to cut for Locks of Love. Although Jordyn never had a wig or obviously desired or even wanted one we met a lot of kids (especially girls) who did have wigs. This is something I think every woman should do at least once.
For those who know me, you know that I normally get my hair cut after a few months because it starts annoying me, but well I have to get past myself. A little girl, teenager, etc would LOVE to be annoyed by hair, but going through chemo and/or radiation they don't get that choice. Some choose to shave it all off so they don't go through watching it fall out.
I'm calling tomorrow to make an apt to get my hair cut. I'll be cutting off 10 inches. I'm going in with it curly (natural state of my hair) and will take a before and after picture! Not sure what day I'll get it cut on, prob. either Friday or Saturday since Chad has a 4 day and will be home to be with the boys.
If you're wondering how you can donate your hair to Locks of Love it needs to be long enough that you can cut off 10 inches to be donated. Go to www.locksoflove.org and it'll tell you everything you need to know about donating your hair!
Oh....and I was thinking last night our Monday is all nice and calm with nothing extra to do..HA! I have to take Jacob to his German language class (he's learning German!!) that's from 4:30-5:30 and then at 5:30 he has tball practice...Chad's the assistant coach for his team. When his head coach called yesterday I told him Jacob would be a few minutes late. His class is literally right here by us and tball field is on the otherside. It's only a 3 minute drive at most or a 5-10 minute walk. So he shouldn't be too late. He'll go to class in his sweats, I'll have his cleats and glove in the van so we can get as soon as he's done in class!
He's excited to be playing again, I'll take pictures of him!!
Have a great Monday!
