And here I am, 20 minutes lighter (at least). We’ll see how it looks when I style it myself. It still fits into a teeny-yet-super-thick ponytail, and, if it turns out actually as I wanted, I will be mistaken for Kate Hudson* the next time I leave the house.** The kids didn’t notice for about 30 minutes, then Vaughn said, “Mommy! Your HAIR!” and that was it. Ailsa liked the curls and gave me a hug, and Tamsin said she liked it too.
When Chris got home, he sort of looked like he was going to cry, but then I started to look like I was going to cry too, and he got over it and told me it looks nice. And that he supports my growing this out, “should I want to”. And also, he really liked my long hair.
