"Well our daughter has done her first"
Me: "Her first what?" I'm thinking leave it to my hubby to draw it out with 50 questions.
K: "Well, she was playing in the play room and came out and told me that she sneaked past mommy and that's when she showed me the basket."
Me: "okay. What's in the basket?"
By this time my SIL is looking at me a little concerned by the expression on my face, she's listing a run down of all the firsts that my kids have gone through and what possible first could he be calling about.
K: "Her hair"
Me: "WHAT?" my eyes start watering immediately. My SIL gets more concerned, I mouth to her "she cut her hair"
SIL: "which one" meaning which girl
K: "well, there's a lot in the basket"
Me: "how could we not have noticed that she did that"
K: "no idea but it doesn't look good."
Crap. This is J, J of the long golden blonde hair that sweetly curls on the ends. J, who I have recently started getting into doing fancy dos with her hair. She's 3. She's never had her hair cut, except her bangs that is.
To be truthful, J has been telling me lately that she wants her hair cut. Her hair is so fine that it gets knotty and like any kid, doesn't like having to suffer through getting it brushed out. But, I was reluctant to cut her hair cause it's just so darn pretty. Was.
I can't believe I never noticed. I was on the computer (of course) and thought I had an eye on where the scissors were. She must have taken the scissors and then sneakily put them back. I can literally see them in my mind's eye where they last were and what time I had to rescue them from O cause he had gotten up from his nap. So the entire time I thought she was playing so nicely with baby in the bedroom, she was going snippety, snip, snip. Later while I was cooking supper she fell asleep on the couch and when we picked her up to bring her for supper her hair was messy so we never noticed.
So here are the photographic evidence of her crimes.
It's like that on both sides. Some sections barely reach her chin with a long mane in the back still, which is probably why it took us so long to notice. The little sneak.
So it's off to the hairdresser's this morning to see if we can get the rest of it fixed. Sigh. I don't think we'll be able to keep much.
So... ask me later if I cried.
