My morning routine has changed dramatically, especially as of recent with the addition of our third baby boy. Gone are the days of mornings where I only worried about one person needing to get ready and out the door. Charged with the task of getting three wee ones ready for the day (and only one is truly capable of getting his own, sometimes, coordinated clothes on) my mornings are nothing short of a three-ringed circus.
About a month ago, I did something pretty spontaneous — something I don’t do often — and decided to chop my hair. With the majority of my time spent chasing around a very busy baby, I quickly learned how difficult it was to care for my long hair and often ended up throwing it in a ponytail or messy bun to avoid getting my hair yanked out by little 8-month-old fingers.
I have super thick hair and though most people said my hair would change post pregnancy, the thickness has remained pretty much the same. The only thing that’s really changed is the number of gray hairs on top of my head, but that’s a whole other post for a whole other day. But thick, long hair isn’t easy to tame when you don’t have much ‘me’ time in the schedule — so I was ready to say goodbye to lengthy locks and opt for what I respectfully refer to as my new mom do. Hello short hair!
