Chopped

Long hair is beautiful, but not when you where it in a 1.97 second pony-tail 29 of the 30-31 days a month. And not when the only time you where it down is when luckily the night before when you went to bed with your hair wet it dried magically well on your pillow, so you think it is presentable for the day. And not when that long hair is shedding because your post pregnancy hormones are raging (or not?), and clogging your shower drain to the point that it needs unclogging every 3 days.
I always swore to myself that I wouldn't be a chopper (one of those mother's who chopped their long hair off), until I figured out why they do it. Now I respect women who chop their hair off. Just means that they are filling their lives with a lot of meaningful things and don't have more than 10 minutes a day to devote to getting "pretty" for the day, but do want to look pretty. Not saying the long haired moms that style it every day aren't doing meaningful things with their lives, just saying I now COMPLETELY understand why a mom might want to chop their hair off. [Want to be hottttt for their husbands, yet want to spend time with their babies, and need to do house work, and need to take care of the yard, and need to blog (is this a need), and need to pay bills, and need to run errands, and need to call so and so, and need to write so and so a thankyou/happy birthday/ get well card, and need to fulfill their church callings, and need to...... you get the point).
Anyway, here are the before and afters. I LOVE short hair; I have since the 6th grade when I chopped maybe 2 feet off of my L-O-N-G hair and recognized all the pros to short hair, plus the cuteness of it (in my opinion).

I'm totally the same way as in my hair was shedding for the first 6 months and everyday I wear my hair up in a ponytail/bun. I don't really know how to do hair so the bun works for me I guess. At least it's fast but not so pretty. I love your short hair. If I could do it like that I would.
