My kid is better than me...

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Hands down my kid has guts. For months K has been on my case about cutting her long locks for the cancer society. I'm not sure how this idea came into her 6 year old head....I think she saw something on TV and started to probe me with questions. Unknowingly, I think told her the little folks without hair get donated wigs....and that's pretty much all it took to get K's wheels in motion. Together with her aunt J they went to the salon and chopped off about 10 inches of hair. My sister had more anxiety than K. K was remarkably calm and very excited that her hair was going to a good place...that someone sick would be just a little happier. No doubt about it ...this mama is proud and is inspired by her little one.
Lovely long locks.
 After months of her asking I did the research after and found out we needed a minimum of eight inches. K was patient enough to grow it out.
 Here we go.  She was a trooper...didn't flinch for a second. I think I was the one gasping...I needed a moment to say goodbye (I know, its just hair). 
 Aunt J here needed more moral support.  But she was a trooper...with gorgeous hair.
 K getting her hair 'did'.  Thanks to the salon artist over at Donato's Salon & Spa.
 All gone! K & aunt J rocking their new stylish bobs.
K's little letter to Pantene to include with her hair donation. Someone pass me a tissue..I'm going all mama emotional right now. All images via me.

For any of you interested in donating your lovely locks for a good cause...check out the Pantene Beautiful Lengths programme. If my six year old can do it...you can too.

I'm amazed at how our kids are so in tune with the needs of others. I don't remember being like that at ALL! Way to go K and Aunt J.

Oh my gosh, I love this post! What a little sweetie! I've donated my hair a couple of times and now you've totally inspired me to talk to my little 6 year-old about it. I think she'd be just as eager to help as your little muffin.

Love this!

My 8 year old and I do it as a mommy-daughter ritual. She joined me only this past spring after seeing me donate a few times now. We both love long beautiful locks, but we love the act of giving even more, especially one that is grown with so much love and patience (yes it gets tempting to chop off those locks during hot, humid summer months, but we never waiver in our cause).

It so happens that this tradition is catching on and my mom,colleagues and friends have also started doing the same. This simple act of giving reminds us that you don't need a big wallet to give; you only need a big heart and it multiplies as more people get inspired.

BTW Locks of Love is a similar program, but unlike Pantene requires a minimum of 10 inches of hair. Pass on the love.
