But since then, Abigail's hair has grown with the exception of the small snip of 'bangs' she gave herself about a year ago. Bethany has never had a hair cut that I recall, although my brain seems to be recalling at least a desire to rid her of her baby mullet. I'm not sure I did anything about it, though.

But there was a small part of me that resisted, mostly because (if I am to be perfectly honest here) I coveted Abigail's hair. A little. Okay, a lot. Her silky, shiny, straight blond hair was right out of my curly-haired daydreams.
