i think it's a rite of passage or something. maybe it's more of a flexing of independence, but it seems many a child give cutting their own hair a whirl. Anna had her moment last year. and now, Maddie has followed suit. after months of complaining about her bangs, me pinning them back each day, she finally decided to take matters into her own hands. she chopped them right off. there you go - no bangs! problem solved!
they definitely stay out of her eyes now.
