Saturday afternoon I walk into the den where eldest is playing a computer game (featuring the Backyardigans). Middle Child is in their watching.
On the floor are clumps of hair.
"What happened?" I ask.
"I cut my hair!" Middle child announces proudly/"she cut her hair!" Eldest informs me.
I guess they found the scissors in the desk...
ANyway, after a discussion about not playing with scissors and not cutting hair, and a bit of a pout from Middle Child -- normal when she is scolded. All was well. And really we go off easy -- no baldspots, only a short spot where one ear now sticks out of the hair cover. ANd hair grows back after all.
As long as it is the only time it happens(fingers crossed)
