Rapunzel's hair cut

Rhianna has always had long hair.After she watched the movie Tangled,she insisted that she be called Rapunzel.Recently however,her language developed more.With more language,come more ideas.With more ideas come reasoning ability.All these combined with a stubborn child resulted in a hair cut.

I love her long silky hair.She needs the long hair.Really.She's very active and a bit tomboyish so she needs the long hair to keep some girlish element.Also,I used to braid her hair tightly over the magnet piece to keep them from falling off everytime she went for her OT sessions or to the playground.

For the last few weeks however she started asking me for a hair cut.Reasons being:

1.All her classmates have short hair (except one girl but she didn't mention that,little stinker).
2.Short hair is cute (?)
3.Her name is actually Rhianna not Rapunzel (really?)
4.Everybody she knows has short hair (I'm not so sure about that)

Anybody who knows this child knows that there is no point in arguing with her.
So here are the pictures.

Setting up the length.She wanted short short!Mommy said not too short please!So we compromised on shoulder length
She wanted short bangs too

Posing with her 'cute' short hair

Again at home with her 'cute' short hair.Notice the fake butterfly tattoo on her arms? She's a future diva I told ya!

We're still around

We're still around,just a little bit busy.

Rhianna is doing very well in preschool.I had a nice chat with her teacher who said that Rhianna is catching up very fast in her language skills.We just need to brush up on her pronunciation (she's due for another map next week).We're also going to do another language assessment on her to see how much has she gained.We wont be able to tell exactly where she's at in comparison to her peers as these tests are not normed (yet) in our country.But we would at least have some ideas of her language development.

We are also working on getting her a new ear which we hope would happen soon.We are now waiting for a surgery date from our Supersurgeon.We so love this surgeon for his superb skill and he is also currently one of the best in the region...So we'll wait until he's available.

So that's pretty much our update..and also, Rhianna decided that she no longer wants to be Rapunzel and had been nagging me for a haircut for over a week.So, today she got one at a salon and has been showing everyone who would look and telling everyone who would listen (on the phone) about her new hairdo.I'll try and post some pictures tomorrow.
