Tuesday was another big day for the older girls as Leila and Kara got their hair cut, got their teeth cleaned and went school shopping. Mia sat and watched her brave big sisters in the dentist chair. I was so proud of them both. I am sure that was a first for Kara.
I scheduled a hair appointment for Kara with a Mandarin-speaking stylist. When I told her she was getting her hair cut, I was worried she would be upset. Quite the opposite, as a matter of fact. She was so excited and quickly pointed out to me that she wanted bangs and wanted lots of length cut off, which was quite shocking to me. (It's amazing how much you can communicate through hand gestures, by the way.) Well, I kept Kara's ponytail of hair that the stylist cut off and came home and measured it. She got 10" cut off at its longest point! It looks so nice and healthy now. And Leila decided to join her other two sisters and get bangs, too. I love how both of their hair cuts turned out and they are both thrilled!
