The fewer words said, the better

Once upon a time…

There was a sweet little girl who liked to read.

And because she likes to get in character, she started wearing this bonnet everywhere.

And she was very cute.

When her mean mama said she couldn’t wear it to school, she wore this headband instead. Adorable, no?

Only she was covering up THIS.

Curse you, scissors.

Does anyone know when they stop doing this?  This is the 4th time!

    Oh no! I love her face in the second bonnet photo, with her little fist. Luckily she looks darn adorable in that headband…

    Mary cut her hair four times also. The first was a major chopping…seriously we called her “Bob” for 6 months. The second was another major chopping, although with more flair since she was seven, and she had long hair in the back and short hair on each side. The third time got by me until I looked at a picture. It was a bit up front…some really short bangs that she plastered down with gel each day. The last…she had sideburns, and not in a good way.

    Hopefully four is the magic number for Rachael too!

    (It ended in third grade for Mary…so you might have a bit of time still. Sorry!)

    I still do it. I’m 42. Looks like she has “the gene”. Crap.

    My daughter hasn’t figured out that regular scissors cut hair. She thinks hers are just for paper, and that Mommy has “special scissors” for hair.

    Rofl! I am lucky that I have only boys and if they do that it is not a huge deal, I can just buzz it shorter.

    LOL- luckily it’s just hair. Knock wood, my kids haven’t figured that scissors can serve that purpose…yet.

    Carley did hers twice-then hid it under the bed-both times (and she is a gifted child!)-I didn’t even notice the second time until I found the hair-she did a pretty good job for a 6 year old.
    I think that was the last time???
    I never cut my hair-I cut my sister’s instead….WAHHHH!

    ***snicker, snicker***

    I have boys that want their hair to NEVER be cut, so I cannot relate (yet, there’s always tomorrow). However, a friend’s daughter just did the same thing – for the third time – and she is 9. Sorry!

    Points for creativity, though. And sneakiness. I like that.

    OH NO!! ;o) I am so happy mine never went through the scissors-happy phase. Or maybe they just haven’t reached it yet?!

    […] is vastly different from the books…but still fun to watch. And they DO wear those awesome bonnets she’s so fond […]
