Mom Hair

Hello, my name is Amber and I have been haunted by my mom hair. It all started when weeks (or months) ago I was watching the Today Show and they had a piece on "Mom Hair." They kept flashing that teaser promo...DO YOU HAVE MOM HAIR??? To tell you the truth, I don't even remember the content of the story (which I made sure to see after 45 minutes of teasers, news and other stories), but since then I have not been able to get that term out of my head. Mom hair. Because I knew. I knew without seeing the piece that I had it. Nate has been a hair puller for as long as I can remember. As a result, I have been wearing my hair up for as long as I can remember. A quick review of my pictures shows that by the time Nate was three months old I was regularly wearing my hair up in a a ponytail or clip:

Now I have had shorter hair most of my adult life. But my thought was that I could let it grow out and on occasion actually style it and get back a bit of sex appeal lost from birthing that baby. So as the weeks have turned into my months, my hair has gotten longer and longer and more unruly. I mean look at it here, it won't even fit into my clip!


So today I decided enough was enough. My BFF reminded me that before Nate was born I had feared I would turn into one of those moms who let themselves go completely. Well I manage to shower and put on some makeup most days, and since I take Nate out everyday I get dressed at some point. Sure, I no longer get those regular mani/pedis but I need to be able to walk outside my home without the shame of MOM HAIR. So I walked into a nearby salon and had her chop it. AHHHHH....Sigh of relief. I didn't have her dry and style save time and money. But I think I already love it. Pictures will be forthcoming.

Now I can turn my attention to equally pressing issues like World Peace.
