Our annual tradition of watching the Portland St. Patrick’s Day Parade with the Benson’s continues. It was a cold one but we had lots of fun. It was short parade followed by lunch at Gritty’s.
Abby’s most awesome hair cut!!!
Abby had been talking about getting a haircut for awhile and we made last minute plans at Snip Its following the parade! She had 8 ½ inches cut off and donated it to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths. She was so proud of herself and I was so thrilled that she went through with it. Her cut is so much more manageable and adorable! I do love her long locks, but this was all her idea. We just helped execute it. I recall making up a bed time story the evening before about a 5 year old Abby who had long hair, and her friend Maria who was 6 and was very sick. Maria had to take strong medication which made her hair fall out and Abby wanted to cut her hair and donate it to help Maria get a wig. Abby still asks me to tell that story. I often will take a different twist and have them playing at the playground or go swimming in the lake. Abby loves those stories and she will smile as I “tell” them. I truly believe she knows the character Abby’s impact on her friend.
