    Sorry but on this one I side with dad. Its hair it grows back. Why should he not have those firsts too? I have realized if I think hard enough and am honest with myself my daughters daddy is better at things like that than I am I always try to interject my oppinion on what it should look like and daddy lets her be her own person. It is a memory for her like you had its just with her dad. You and her will have plenty of memoires. Heck shes her own person this memory may never even make her fav list and it could be full of times with you. xoxox

    I would’ve been pissed and I probably would’ve blown my top and then apologized later. I understand exactly where you’re coming from. Your hubby needs to understand that you’re probably having some Mommy Guilt from not being there and then she has this big THING and you’re not there for it. Good luck…take her out for a pedicure or something girly and fun for the two of you!

    I picked up on the you two are alike part. I have a 13 year old that is “like” me…drives me nuts most days. But since I have learned to let her be her strong person and not take it personally it’s gotten easier. I have the I don’t care about things attitude and it makes her want me involved, reverse psycology kinda thing 😉
    Good luck 🙂

  4. I would have reacted just as you did. Especially since you already had the earring incident, which just makes the hair incident even more of an incident. My husband wouldn’t see the big deal, either, and would tell me I was wrong for blowing it all up, but…still. And not to take sides, but you already have to miss out on those little moments when you travel, so that makes every other moment even more special, if that makes sense. Sadly, I don’t let incidents fade from my memory too quickly, but I hope they do for you. BTW-I’m not bashing your husband, in case he reads this, just saying that I so understand where you’re coming from.

  6. Monika, our husbands sound a lot alike! Mike wasn’t trying to do something to upset me. He just thought it wasn’t a big deal. After the dust settled, I told him why I thought it was a big deal, he listened and then told me in the future he’d try to be more respectful of my view on this. His thought was: Shelby asked to do it; it didn’t seem like a big deal; and since hair grows back, so why not? After I cooled off, I could see why he didn’t see it was a big deal to me. He’s a boy, it’s different. I’m sure if I did a major “boy” thing with our son and didn’t consult him, he’d be upset. Anyway. I’m trying to let it go. As you can tell, I’m still holding onto the earring incident and that was two years ago … so it’s easier said than done!
