I did it. I cut my hair short - quite short for Becky standards in fact. I always swore I wouldn't run to the salon after having a baby like so many other moms do to get the infamous MOM CHOP. When moms would tell me they just HAD to cut their hair because of the baby pulling on it or because of the lack of time for washing, blow drying, and styling, I would think to myself, I'll never do that - I will keep the long locks I love and deal with it. Well, like so many other things I told myself I wouldn't do when I had kids, I did it. The fact is, my baby takes chunks of my hair and pulls as hard as she can while being held, when breastfeeding, you name it. I also am absolutely incapable of styling my hair everyday, but when I do, I need to do it in record time - no standing in front of the mirror admiring myself like I did pre-baby. Life has changed. And now I want to go back to that person I was before I had my daughter and tell her to shut up, to not judge, to understand that every parent does what they need to do to stay afloat. Having a child is hard so be nice to those mamas who may seem to do weird things to keep their sanity. If you have no children, then how can you possibly judge anyway. If you do have children, well then you know you'll do just about anything to make life just a little bit easier.
