UPDATE locks of I HATE YOU Mom Forever

Crisis is over. In a moment of extremely fine parenting, I forced the generous hair donor to sit in front of the computer and look at heartwrenching photos of kids with cancer, while using my shrillest mom voice to say things like... That kid? That kid gets to have a tantrum, not you.

And now? We are going to eat icecream.

We have a friend with alopecia areata. She is in 6th grade and completely hairless and will always be hairless until she gets a wig from locks of love, so on her behave, thank you Carlie.

That was some extremely fine parenting. I'm impressed with Carlie and her donating. I think I would have been too shallow to even consider it when I was her age.

Aw her hair still looks cute to me :) Maybe you could take her to get her hair layered? If she'd like that anyways.

I am pretty much satisfied with a haircut if I can still make a ponytail, so based on the pic = success to me.

But I am over 30 and one of those sucky mother types (albeit one who is mucho vain about my kids' hair; sue me).

I hope ice cream = solution to every problem in the world, including cancer.
