Recently, it seems there have been a rash of do-it-yourself hairstyles in my "circle of trust" (the moms, and their offspring that don't usually find MY offspring scary or offensive). Strangely, in the last 6 months I've been noticing the aforementioned, skipping about with strange hair spikes, 1/2 inch bangs, or a new type of comb over. Perhaps what made me suddenly start noticing the handiwork of the little people, was the increased interest in scissors by MY offspring. I imagine these sighting were sending my brain a message to be mindful of my towels, linens, shirts, or basically anything I valued from these little destructors.
The above photographs capture the masterpiece my 7 year old male child created with manicure scissors. Sadly I didn't notice til the next afternoon, AFTER sorting the laundry and finding a clump of dark brown hair rolled up in a towel. Here is how it unfolded...
He came in crying to tell on his sister for some assault that I'm sure he had no part in inducing. "MOMMM-EEEEEEEE - Shelby hit me!"
"I was jumping on her hand and her doll and she hit me! I didn't do nothing!"
Perhaps you shouldn't ju- what happened to your hair?(at this point I retrieve the camera-got to photograph the stupid. rules are rules)
Your hair, it's missing in the front of your head...in a oblong shape?
The shape of the missing hair on your-DID you cut your hair?
"I didn't do NOTHING"
Did you cut your hair? (picture 1)
"NO!" (picture 2)
Stand still....you know the rule.
"NOOOO don't talk about me on facebook! Don't make fun of me!"
It's only because I love you little man, you will make someone laugh, don't you want to brighten someone's day?
A word to the wise, even manicure scissors can help your child destroy all you've been working for. Here endeth the lesson.
