Not-So-Funny Friday

Well, exactly two weeks after her 3rd birthday, our daughter has gotten her first "real" haircut.

From her brother.

To say I wasn't pleased would be an understatement. I actually had tears welling up in my eyes as I took in what was happening. I was washing dishes in the kitchen, and just a few feet away in the living room, our son apparently told our daughter that she needed a haircut. She obligingly stayed still.

He did some serious chopping, and her hair is now approximately 1/2 inch long in some places. Thankfully those places are in the back.

So this is what D cut off. Check out the looooong, cute curls.

This is what I trimmed off, trying to make it somewhat presentable.



















And here's the final result. Actually somewhat cute, but I'm already missing those curls. I know it's just hair - and it's not as though she really cares. When she saw herself in the mirror, she just started giggling. Guess I oughta take my cue from her :)

LOL! Mu 2 year old DD cut her own hair right before Christmas. She cut a big patch out of the side, right down to the scalp! Like, you, I gave her a bob to try to hide it a bit. I had to cut off her adorable baby curls, too. Here's to our little ones' hair growing super fast to cover up their exploration!

She looks super cute, BTW!
