I'm Not Surprised. At All.

I recently mentioned that snoozing on the at-home parent job can lead to problems.  (See #5.)  Well, of course, my comment about hair being cut turned out to be prophetic.  Less than two weeks later, a certain Miss Amelia took advantage of a moment of lax supervision to experiment with cutting her own hair.  I knew it was going to happen sooner or later and Amelia did not disappoint.  The funny thing is, her new haircut completely fits her personality.  Yes, it's a little ridiculous looking, but she's quite proud of her handiwork and it's now a constant reminder of the independent little teenager I'm raising.  Too bad she won't actually be a teenager for another decade.

So proud of herself.

If I hadn't caught her in the act, I'm sure much more hair would be gone.

Celebrating her achievement with some cold milk.
(Yes, in a Budweiser glass.)

Whenever she's asked what she did to her hair, she simply replies, "It's beautiful."

It's too bad she didn't start with the kid who actually needs a haircut.
Coulda saved me a trip to the barber.

There was a period of several years when even the nail scissors in our house had to be kept under lock and key.

I can't stop laughing at her "it's beautiful" comment.
