My Clever Girl with Long Locks

As you can see here, Sasha likes to climb into her toy basket. I'm sure she isn't the first toddler to do this. In fact, I don't think she is even my first toddler to do this! However, today she pulled a chair cushion over and put it into the basket. She made it more comfy... how clever! Daddy actually called me at work to tell me about it, figuring I could use the smile.

Now what you might also notice is how long her curls are getting. They are starting to reach her eyes. This has me thinking... what do I want to do about it? Do I just leave them and continuously push them out of her eyes? Do I get her first haircut? Already?! Do I try tiny barrettes? Then there are headbands. I really hate baby headbands. If you like them on your baby, go for it! I just feel like they are going to squish my poor baby's brains! I realize this is probably entirely illogical, but still... the thought is there. She isn't really a baby anymore, though. Her soft spot has already gotten much smaller since she was a newborn. As a side-note, I really suck at hair. I can braid stuff, but I cannot braid my own hair. I do alright with an older child's hair, but not great. What am I to do with Sasha's hair? What have you done with your toddler's hair?


  1. I cut it. But then, I wasn't as enamored of long hair on my babies as you are. Both kids, but especially Alex would knot their hair something awful if it got too long, and rather than put them through the agony of combing it out, short hair it was.

  2. Tyler's hair got knotted awfully bad, but I was pretty good at being gentle to brush them out. Sasha's hair doesn't get many knots just yet... but I'm sure they're coming.

    Her new-found fear of strangers might make a haircut more difficult... and really I'm just not ready yet, regardless of hair length. lol

    btw - took me a minute to realize who you were! lol

  3. My 3-year-old has a chin-length curly mop and doesn't like bows or ponytails at the moment. She will normally allow a small clip to hold the hair out of her eyes on the side. Other days she says "noooo! I want it down like this!" and pulls the sides down against her cheeks. It looks a bit sloppy but I don't want to cut it because I'd like it to get long enough that someday we might be able to put it in a real ponytail, if she'll change her mind and allow it. It grows so slowly. We had to use bows when she was younger because she put those little clips in her mouth and it scared me. We didn't use headbands much either; they were too hard to get on and keep on.
