You would expect this from a four year old.....

I am really one that loves surprises-mostly because the good ones come around fairly rarely. Today I got one of the other surprises that sometimes takes place when you have daughters. It has finally happened to me, at least worse than it has before. Whitney cut the front portion of her bangs close to her head on the left side. At least when amber cut hers it was chin length and I could salvage it well. My first reaction was-"why?" I mean she's 7 1/2 years old-you would think she would know better right? Well Whitney has hair that tangles massively. And she was brushing her hair last night and couldn't get a tangle out so she decided to cut it out. Brilliant -attack the problem head on (nice choice of words huh?) and go with the easy fix. Unfortunately I had to explain to her that because she cut it so short, it's going to be a long time before it grows out and now she won't be able to do her own hair anymore. And if she ever cuts her hair again-i threatened to cut it short like a boys. OH the consequences. So with some hair gel and using the comb over technique-i had her sporting a side part style to school, that hopefully will hide her spikeys enough that will eliminate any teasing. Kids can be cruel and I only hope that her hair grows faster than I think it will.

Sad, Sad, day at your house.... Brylie cut hers, but nothing too short even though I just cried. When a friend saw her new haircut and what had happened she told me that she took the hair razor to her head and then tripped and fell a few days later and knocked out a bunch of baby teeth! She was only 3, so the next few YEARS of pictures weren't her best... I guess it can always be worse... They do have darling little girl caps and hats now though...
You need to post pictures!!

Oh man!!!!!!! Who knows why kids do that. I remember being like six and cutting my eyelashes off! Don't ask me why! I hope you can take it while it grows out again.

Oh, and is that why Amber's hair is short now? I guess I missed that she cut it!
