That time when Audrey cut her own hair

I looked at her freshly chopped hair with big eyes and calmly gave her a hug and handed her back to her papa. Then I walked into my room, closed the door, and I cried big fat alligator tears. We were in the other room when it happened. Phil walked in the lounge to get the girls dressed when I heard, "Oh no! Audrey! What have you done? LOVE! IT'S FINALLY HAPPENED!!" My first thought was, "We don't have any markers? She couldn't have drawn on furniture."

We had just finished watching Tangled and finished the part where Rapunzel's hair is cut short and Audrey wanted to cut her own hair too. We've watched it a dozen times but I didn't think that she'd actually TRY it!

After my sadness subsided we parted her hair differently and trimmed it all over to um... blend it in. And actually it's not so bad! I mean... it could have been worse right? And it'll only take another three years for it to grow out again. *big deep breath*

I told her cutting her own hair was very naughty but that hair doesn't matter, she is still beautiful. And then I kissed her cute little nearly-3-year-old cheek and reminded her that I love her very much.

Phew. The adventures in motherhood.

Happy Mother's Day to me! ;)

  7. My daughter did that to herself too, most recently last year and she was 11 then - left herself a patch right on her forehead about 5mm long. It does grow back - they learn the hard way.
