When Disney's version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe came out a couple of years ago, I was struck by how much my Brenna resembled Lucy. At the time, Brenna was maybe 2 1/2 or 3 years old and even then she looked like her.
Fast forward to now...a darling 4 year old with long hair. Everytime we watch the movie, I still feel that Brenna looks like her. Now, we get to Saturday....and I am finding Brenna with her over grown bangs falling into her face. I've asked her many times over the last few months if she'd like me to cut them, but she refuses! So on Saturday I asked her if she would like mommy to cut her hair to look like....Lucy. She looked at me with a happy little smile and said, yes!
Now, don't get me wrong...I love her long hair, but the bangs were out of control and so I thought if I cut the hair just a little longer than the bangs, it would grow out all one length. We could start fresh. Thankfully, the idea of looking like Lucy was good incentive for her.
So, yesterday, I sat her down with her long tresses...
And began to cut her hair(mind you, this was my first time ever cutting one of my kids hair)...
Now, you all tell me....doesn't she look a little like Lucy?
Either way, I think she looks so adorable with her hair cut short and I am certain she is quite pleased. But don't tell her she looks like Lucy....right now, she's a penguin!
