OK, so the thing I SWORE would never happen to me happened last night...Gwen cut her own hair...now, before you think, chops and chunks of hair, be forewarned that Gwen is, after all, my daughter so it actually isn't that bad...I'll post a pic as soon as I take one:)
I was feeding Graelyn and had cut open the package of pizza rolls for dinner and left the scissors on the counter in the kitchen...moments, many moments passed and Gwen came in, walking slowly with an extremely odd look on her face...I think she was proud of herself because she was smiling. I saw what she had done (and the coif of hair on her shoulder) and my jaw dropped. I was totally shocked...she had given herself bangs...sort of side-swept bangs...not all together bad looking but DEFINITELY NOT what mommy had in mind for the summer! We have spent over a year getting her hair one length and now, we're basically back to square one...I haven't "fixed" it yet or trimmed it so its a bit more even but we did have a talk about how the only people who are allowed to cut her hair are Ms. Jodie (her hairstylist) and mommy...ugh...tears...more tears and sad faces...she knew that she, indeed had not made mommy happy. On the upside of this whole ordeal, it could have much much worse...I'm just not all that happy to be in the boat of mother's whose daughters cut their own hair...ugh...and besides, I'm growing my own bangs out so I can only imagine how horrible its going to be to grow hers out now too!!!
