In anticipation of Nanny’s visit (and also because the ladies at daycare had been combing Della’s hair back with water to keep it out of her eyes), Della got her hair cut.
No, she didn’t cut it herself, as was suggested by one of these same daycare ladies. Asymmetrical haircuts are increasingly popular with the toddler set. See for example cousin Annie.
I love the new haircut! Della and Annie are fashion forward, indeed.
