What can you say?? Brooke was born bald! It took 2 years to grow any hair at all, and 2 more years to get it to this length. Maybe it will grow back before she starts school.
She wasn't to fussed about it, until I showed her the photo. We got half way to school - to pick up Ben - and the water works started "my hair won't grow back" . She kept her hand glued to the back of her head for about an hour.
Brooke's best friend is a serial self stylist, but this is the first time she's tried it. Her friend has styled her hair before, in the middle of Brooke's 3rd birthday party, before cake and photos, but she did quite a good job! After that, we made a rule about only mummies cut hair. After she had done it, but before I knew, she came out to the lounge and said " only mummies cut hair eh? That's the rule". That rule was made almost a year ago, and she still remembered it.
I am thankful that she did the back rather than the usual 'mullet' type do that the pre-school set seem to be so fond of.
