Would you cut this child some bangs? Am I being a cruel mother by making her have to wear a hairbow just so she can see? I hated hairbows as a child. Is it torture? Am I wrong in being sentimental about her hair? Hanging onto every strand like a thread of gold (Well, try silver. I don’t care much for gold.). She was born with every bit of it, and I want her to keep it. I think of a day when her hair can hang like Mommy’s and all she’ll have to do is brush it or giver herself a ponytail and go. But, maybe she isn’t a tomboy like me. She knows nothing else, so is it wrong? Am I failing as a mother because of neglecting to cut my baby’s hair? I could get all Biblical and say a woman’s hair is her glory, but folks would say that was then, this is now. So, I’m left with a question and the feelings of a mother for the creation God blessed her to grow in her womb.
