Ack! I totally forgot to post about Syd's hair. She had a salon appointment for a trim, and at the last minute decided that she wanted it, "short, like yours!" Honestly, it was the end of a long day and I had no negotiation left in me, so after double-checking with C I told my stylist to do whatever Syd/Nina asked for. Guys, she saw the first cut and sweetly, quietly said, "Can it be a little shorter please?"
So when it's all said and done we head home to show off the new look. We walk in and a visible relief washes over C's face. Later he told me, "I was so worried she was going to look like Dora!"
