Beautiful Girl

I love Andrea’s hair.  Over the past few months she’d say, “I wonder what I’d look like if I cut my hair?” and I’d say “NOOOOO!”

It was a love we have in common, at least, because she tells me to never cut my hair so I can be a pretty granny with long, gray hair.  Nice.

Photo booth pictures of Andrea and friend and Andrea’s hair:

Off to get a trim:

But wait!  Dude talked us into getting some length off!  LOVE it!  (It’s still long).

Oh it doesn’t stop there.  Me before:

My hair:

And after:

Still technically long but it feels damn good to have that old, old hair chopped off and thrown in the trash.

(But I am glad our hair grows like weeds.  Don’t think I’ll be cutting it soon).

This weekend was mother/daughter weekend at A’s college.  Friday night was music and dessert…

and gabbing with all the other mothers and daughters.  Saturday was a fancy brunch.  They took our picture which I cannot wait to get because after some snapshots like this:

…Andrea stood up and declared that she didn’t like this stuffy, old-fashioned posing and hugged me tight instead.  We saw that picture on the monitor and it’s fantastic.

At one point in the banquet, they played a video of some of the girls saying stuff to their mothers.  It was hard to take pictures of the screen because I was trying not to cry, but right when Andrea said on camera, “and mommy I know you’re probably starting to cry about now…” is exactly the point I was losing it.

She knows me well.
