a quiet day.......too quiet!
i know every parent has moments like this one. there i was, making dinner while the girls watched a show upstairs, the normal routine. i took a deep breath feeling uncommonly relaxed. it was quiet.....too quiet. i called out, "Anna?" and heard guilty footsteps move too quickly over my head. i ran upstairs and was met by this face:she had found the scissors! i wanted to cry. my sister's wedding is in only a few weeks. i assessed the damage. it's not too bad. she cut a massive amount of hair as evidenced by the mound i found in the trash can. (next to my empty coconut m&m's bag, which are too good for words.) but luckily she has long hair and most the damage can be hidden. we just need these bangs to grow out a bit. and i've got to be okay with the slightly seventies flair she'll have to have since her bangs now start from the middle of her head a la Toni Tennille of the Captain and Tennille. oh well, it was bound to happen some day. hopefully the lesson is learned and there will be no more repeat offenses.
