Don’t Cha Wish Your Mom Was A Freak, Like Me — Don’t Cha, Baby!?!
Brat Bully Beware - This Playground’s Made For Walking!

She May Be Short…She May Be Cute…And She May Be My Kid…But, She Did It In The Name Of Love…And That’s What Makes Her Pretty!

I'll tell you, I am one of the proudest momma's in the whole blogosphere...right about now...I'm feeling this warm, fuzzy sort of feeling that I just had to share.

Look it what my kid did!



This was Thing Two before school, this morning. 



This is Thing Two -- after she (and about a dozen other school mates) donated ten inches of hair for the Locks of Love! 

What is Locks of Love? 

Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children 18 years and younger suffering from long-term medical hair loss.  We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics.  Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure.  The prostheses we provide help to restore self-esteem & confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Quite honestly -- even though she and the other student council members came up with the idea for the charity event -- she was a bit nervous and nearly fell out of the chair when the hairdresser asked her four-year-old sister:
"Would you like to cut off your sister's hair?"

But, she did great -- once the hairdresser assured her that she would be "right there" after Thing Two screamed:

Obviously remembering the time that Mini-Me decided that she needed a haircut and -- because I was "too busy" in bed with the flu -- when Daddy wasn't watching...ahem...took matters into her own hands and gave herself a mullet!'s like Thing Two said to her classmates - especially those girls who thought she was "crazy" or who wouldn't be "caught dead" wearing a style "like that":

"It's only'll grow back...DUH!"

Okay, minus the "DUH!" part -- she really felt too good about what she did, to care if anyone liked her hair, or not -- actually, I might of, sort of know...the "DUH!"...slip out.

Because it was obvious -- not just to me -- even the lunch aides smiled as they watched Thing Two skip to her table, perhaps feeling as if she were walking on air, and I bet you (all the hair products lying around our house) that her head felt a little more...I her inner-soul, perhaps.

As light as a feather!  

And who wouldn't want a piece of that? 

You may not have 10 inches of hair to donate -- and that's okay! -- there are plenty of other ways you can help.

You can send a pledge, or perhaps would like to show you care by posting this banner on your website (right click and save to hard drive) and link it to

Isn't it pretty?

Thank you Locks of Love for making us (along with a whole lot of people)'s like Thing Two told her student council advisory teacher:

"My hair feels short, but my heart feels really, really pretty!"

Did I mention how pretty you look, today?!?
