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.
