Chop Chop

So, I’ve been a little stressed out lately.

First I noticed I was grinding my teeth. I don’t normally do that.

Then I found myself getting anxious. Irritable.

Finally, I had the urge to cut my hair off.

That’s when I finally stood up and acknowledged that I was stressed out.

You see, I’ve always had long hair. The only time I cut it off is when I am under high levels of stress, and I can count those events on one hand. Even university exams didn’t do this to me.

Usually I cut it into a bob. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was my son’s age.

The hair is growing on me. Unfortunately, I’m still not 100% on why I’m stressed out.

I go back to work in little over a month, which I’m sure has something to do with it. Given how hard it was to transition from working to home life with a baby, I guess I was expecting the transition back to be easier.

It looks like the switch back is panning out to be even harder.

The hair will probably end up going even shorter before I go back.

      I’m glad you liked it 😀

      Several of the moms I met when our babies were smaller commented they wish they had the guts to cut it all off. It’s almost like a right of passage!

  3. I can totally relate to the difficulties associated with transitioning from work to home life with a baby, I went through all the ups and downs there. I too am expecting the back to work transition to be easier so I really hope it goes smoothly for you. Hope the stress levels start to ease up and the hair cut looks great too btw!

      Thanks hun. I’m working on getting myself organized so that the transition is as easy as possible. I hope your transition is smooth as well!
