it finally happened....

I've lived the nightmare that I prayed and prayed would NEVER happen....

My five year old Little Prince decided to try his hand at hairdressing. Yep, that's right. He took the scissors to Princess K's long, lustrous, gorgeous locks and turned her into the achy breaky heart Billy Ray Cyrus!!!

Picture this...you're sitting at the computer, just finished a phone call and in saunters your precious little three year old, smiling ear to ear. You look at her, realizing something is different, but not quite sure what until she turns around and you see that all that remains on her head is a three inch strip of hair, the rest of it has been chopped as though it got caught in the Pampered Chef food chopper. Then, your son comes out and proclaims at his handiwork, "Look, mommy, now we can see her pretty face!"

Cut to a few screams of terror provided by yours truly and a "what do I do??" to the hubcaps. I did the first thing I could think of.

I made a quick call to my hair stylist, "I have a hair emergency" -- they got me in in ten minutes and the entire salon gasped in horror at my baby girl's lack of hair. Half an hour later and she looks adorable - it's kind-of a Katie Holmes/Suri Cruise haircut. Hubcaps thinks she looks like a boy, but this is better than shaving it and starting over!!

Three hours later and I'm still finding clumps of hair around the house, most of the evidence was lying in her closet. What I've found I've put in a Ziploc for her baby book, there's just SO much hair, it really makes me want to cry. Especially when she looks up at me and asks if its growing yet!

Hope your day was better!! Happy Wednesday.

Repeat after me: someday you'll laugh. I know my mom did -- eventually -- when her best friend's daughter (who is a hair stylist) cut my hair because she wanted to play beauty parlor & be just like her mom.

Oh no!!! that is one of my worst parenting fears, glad you were able to get it fixed a bit.

Dawn is right. You WILL laugh. I did. After all three times Gracie did it. Eventually anyway. :)

Oh yikes! My daughter chopped her own bangs off when she was 6 and my son chopped off giant random patches when he was 6 (he has to be buzzed).

Ack. But it'll grow!

Okay you can't tell that story and not post a picture of the new hair cut. Come on!!!!

I love her hair too, but I am sure with a face like that and just like her mama....she can be bald and still be stunning.

I think they'd have to put me in the loonie bin if Ava got her hair chopped off... all her blonde curls. ARRRRGGGGG!
But they do say it will grow back quickly and better he did it now then when she was 17 ;>

I'm just amazed that she sat there while her brother cut her hair. She must trust him alot.
