I should have known...

When she came to me last week and said, I cut my bears hair!! Full of excitement, holding a little purple chunk in her hand. I, of course, gave her the spiel (is that the right spelling?? hmm) about only cutting paper (she has dull kid scissors that she likes to cut with). Then this morning, she comes to me holding "baby Dresden" who is really a cinderella doll from Aunt Ruthie, and a nice curl from cinderellas lushious blond hair! So, I tell her once again all about what we use scissors for and blah blah.. one more chance.. I warn her that if she uses the scissors for anything other than paper one more time.. I'll put them up where she can't reach them. So fast forward to the evening.. Gwen runs and hides.. next to me on our bed...as Shaun comes to our room, holding a piece of hair.. REAL HAIR! Gwen's hair! I try to figure out where it came from, luckily it's not obvious... esp. since she doesn't have much hair to spare! Hey, on the bright side, I thought we wouldn't get to use the sweet little lock of hair heart box from Aunt Jeanene for 5 more years!! We got to use it today.. Gwen's first curl. :)
And now, off to put those scissors up!

That's awesome! Every little girl has to do this. I remember Emma's was right in the front which meant "Barbie Doll" hair cut.

It must be hard wired in girls to cut their hair when they're kids! I think I waited until I was 4, but I went alllll out and chopped a ton. Then got scared and hid it all under my bed.

Hopefully she won't get a hold of those scissors again :)

Thank God it wasn't a bad cut;-)
A good family friend of ours picked up her daddy's hair clippers that he left plugged in the bathroom and went right down the middle of her hair...LOL

I'm glad it isn't noticeable. I remember cutting little pieces off of my bangs and putting them in a basket in my closet. lol My friends daughter cut her bangs...all of them almost to her scalp.
