Long or short?

Is your hair long or short? Has the length changed since you became a mom?
I've mostly had long hair but with first child I cut it short believing that it was easier to care for. Not really. With my second I did it again, not sure why. Someone commented to me that it is true the more kids you have the shorter your hair gets. I haven't had more than a trim since she said that. On baby #3 and it's past the half way on my back. I'm feeling the itch to cut it!

  • I keep my hair short. I usually get it done in a pixie style cut. After I had my kid I grew my hair out then chopped it all off again when she was about 2ish.

  • I had long hair for over 30 years, then after I turned 32 I started cutting a little more off each year. When I turned 40 I chopped it off in a "Halle Berry style do" a very short, spiky cut. Now I'm letting it grow again- It's cut like Tori Spelling's in her show Tori & Dean. I love to change it ever so often- I don't want to get into a rut again!
