"The Scissors Cut My Hair"

That was the response I got, when I realized the end of Emma Sage's one long braid had been snipped. Yes, my daughter cut her hair. Thankfully it was after the hair tie and only a little bit, but my heart paused at first.

You see, one of the little guys I watch did that to himself over the weekend [and exactly the reason I know that Emma Sage decided to 'try' it herself].....except, he is bald. Cutting it all over the top of his head to the skin. His Mother tried the best she could to camouflage it....but his constant itching of his head is a tell tale sign of the damage that was done.

Then, I saw that one of our online friends daughters did the same thing last week.....except, she really took a hunk out of her hair [to look like Zack and Cody from the Disney channel show].......and her Momma was able to work with the angle cut she did to create a cute doo!!!!

So, I'm breathing a sigh of relief.....after a very serious conversation of why we are to NEVER do that again.

But I'm not leaving it to chance......I just did a scissor run and all scissors are up and away. [we have art bins that all the children use freely and that is where she got her pair from.

But you do have to admit, her response was quite it was not her who cut her hair, but 'The Scissors Cut My Hair"

ugh - this is one of my fears!! I am way too attached to both my girls' long hair, and I'm always afraid Paige is going to end up one braid too few.

I can barely bring myself to trim it when it gets so long that she is sitting on it, or that she leans back and sits on it and pulls her head backward.

She has a little playmate that has cut her own hair a couple of times, and they go to school together - I'm just waiting for that day she decides she can "cut cut" on Paige too!!

Oh my gosh I am dying laughing at this post. When she was 4 cut her hair. When we found the locks and the scissors we asked her if she did it.

She replied "no", I asked her who did then, She says "The scissors did it"

My husband trying to refrain from rolling on the floor, says, "were the scissors in your hand when they cut your hair?"

And she looks up at us with those big brown eyes filling up with tears.."UH HUH!!!"

At that point we couldn't be mad, we just busted out laughing. Once she realized she wasn't in trouble she too started laughing.

Needless to say we hid the scissors for about a year!!
