Well, I finally did it. I shaved my head. I was losing enough hair every time I touched it to realize it was on it's way to falling out and knew I didn't want to watch it come out in large clumps and be traumatized, so after talking it over and crying with Jonas, we decided it was time. Talk about a bonding experience! I think we both had tears in our eyes as he picked up the scissors and chopped it off. Even for a husband, I can't imagine what a weird experience that must have been for him. But, as soon as he did it I felt relief. No more time spent worrying about when and how it was going to fall out. It was almost kind of freeing! Jonas actually loves it and begs me not to cover my head with hats and scarves. I was worried about my 4 year old son and how he would react the next morning to me coming out of my room with no hair. Although we had prepared him for that, I'm not sure anyone can be too prepared for the actual site of it. But when he saw me he told me I was still beautiful and then added that my hair felt like sand paper and I could now sand things around the house that need sanding. :) so cute. My 1 year old just laughs and then slaps or licks my head. Hoping that reaction changes soon. :)
I've been stocking up on scarves and practiced lastnight how to tie them and accessorize them and I won't lie, I'm pretty excited about all the looks I can do with those. And really, it is SO great to be able to wake up and not have to do a thing about my hair!!! I'm loving that.
Aside from the hair I've been having a wonderful weekend. Thanks again for your prayers!
