Had to Happen...

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)

    Sorry, can't help but laugh. You know this will be happening again with daughter #3. I'm glad no one was hurt in the styling experiment.

    I'm glad we can amuse you and I know that you would help us out if you could. Thanks

  3. It's only amusing because we've been there, done that....
