india’s big cut

India has been begging to get a “bob” for about a year now, every since her best friend got this cute cut:

Then India fell in love with the 1999 made-for-tv movie Annie, in which the darling actress also wears a cute bob.  The questions started coming more frequently, but I kept putting her off.  I love her long hair, and figured she would regret cutting it.

India was determined, though, and finally I relented.  Her hair was so long that I figured we could probably donate it, so I did some research and decided we would give her hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, who makes wigs that are then donated to cancer patients.

I made an appointment at a “big girl salon”.  India was so excited.  I was hovering, slightly worried that she might have a moment of panic once all that length came off.

I was wrong.  She was thrilled.

She loves her new hair, and I think it fits her. It’s short and sassy, and she’s been walking around with a new swagger.

Best of all, we were able to donate 10 inches.

I’m off to Ethiopia tomorrow morning with Food for the Hungry.  We’ve got almost 24 hours of travel ahead of us . . . wish me luck sleep!
