MOM, Her hair was in her eyes.....

Many parents have faced the nightmare of discovering that their child took the scissors and cut their own hair. Although this is never a pleasant situation to come across, as small children rarely make good hairdressers, it does not have to be a big deal. BUT....when it happens to two GIRLS at the SAME TIME. It was a big deal!!
It is usually easier to deal with when kids cut their own hair when it is a little boy. If the damage they have done can not be repaired through a haircut or trim, you can always opt to shave your little boy’s hair and start fresh. Of course, you can do this with your daughter as well, although many people INCLUDING ME would rather not choose that option for girls.



Madisen told me exactly what happened. "Riley had scissors, and my hair was in my eyes, so he cut me bangs." Okay, so I can deal with that, hers actually isn't bad, way to go bud. I do need to even them up, but still, not too shabby. (of course I didn't tell HIM that.)
Now on to the big mess....

Lily received an awful cut I must say. Seriously these pictures don't even show an OUNCE of how bad it really is. I'm just glad Lily had the "bad" cut, because we can hide it with her super curly hair. If it had been Madisen on the other, that would've been bad.
How could I have let this happen?? Oh ya, it wasn't me!!! I was at work and they were being watch by their one and only, Bill.
Get this...he didn't even TELL me!!!!! I was locking up the house before heading upstairs to I was straightening the pillows on the couch, I saw this.....

This isn't even all of it...the following day, I found clumps of Lily's hair back behind the ottoman.
I started screaming once I realized what it was, walked up stairs telling Madisen and Lily to COME HERE, RIGHT NOW! Sure enough, Riley was in his room hiding!!
Then Bill pipes out, "um, Oh ya, earlier today...(I didn't hear much of what he was saying) blah, blah, snip, snip..then I took away the scissors."
I found this on a website...and it made me laugh.
Bear in mind as well, that children learn everything by mimicking what they see. If you child has been to a hair salon before for themselves or have watched you receive a haircut, it may be something that they wish to try.
Looks like I'll be in trouble...A hairdresser is kinda my profession.
