My daughter's "first haircut"

This is in response to Mama Kat's prompt... "This one time I was sleeping and..."

What did you DO????

This one time I was sleeping and I was awoken to my husband yelling out "What did you DO???"

I thought he was talking to me until I looked down at the end of our bed. There I saw my adorable 20 month old daughter, smiling back at us... with a pair of scissors in hand.

And a pile of hair on our bed.

Gah!

Is that HER hair?

When did she learn to use scissors?

And how did she get them out of a drawer above her head???

Is there blood?

What me worry?

I don't think I've ever awoken so quickly. I leaped from my bed, and grabbed the pair of scissors, but it was already too late. The damage was done. No blood, but a large chunk of hair was now missing from the side of her head.

My husband was angry. I was upset. She gave us this look:

Did I do something wrong?
I tried to I calmed down. We can fix this, right? Just trim it up, and she'll be fine. Right??? I took her to my hairstylist that afternoon. She gave me the bad news: the damage is done. I could do my best to hide the hack job with barrettes and headbands, but no trim would fix it.

I wept in front of my hair stylist. Who knew I was so attached to my daughter's hair?

See all those wispy hairs?  Ya, not natural. That's a hack job.

I thought you were going to say she cut YOUR hair. I'm sure I would have panicked either way... but it also would have been hard to be angry at that face for very long. She's got the "who, me?" look down pat!

Silly child! Thank goodness I have boys on this one!! Worse comes to worse we can just shave it all and start over!
I do love a good Pixie-do though! It'll grow back mom, never fear, its just hair! (and a good story)
