It's a Coming of Age Thing

Every young girl feels that pull very early on that they need to take a stand and be independent of their mother.  Although this is a natural wonderful thing to have happen, sometimes as a mother I struggle with the loss of control.  Izzy has recently decided that her beautician skills have surpassed that of my own; she is insisting that, at the age of 7, she is old enough to do her own hair. 

Ah, who needs cute hair with a smile like that anyway. :)

 (And here's Kira's )
