Yes! She did it again. Just when we think she has learned her lesson, she does something like this....again. A couple of nights ago we put the kids to bed and were just sitting down to watch a movie together. We had been watching it for a while when Abby came out and stood right next to me, who was sitting on the couch. She handed me a couple strands of hair. I took them, not thinking anything of it because it was only 2 or 3 strands, and sarcastically said thanks. Then she handed me a couple more strands, and then a couple more. I finally said "Abby, where are you getting all this hair?" I looked at her and still didn't notice anything wrong. Then, Clint asked, "Did she cut her hair?" I said, "No, she wouldn't do that again." Clint said, "Look at her, she did." I looked closer and sure enough she did, and a lot worse this time, as you can see from the pictures. As I was brushing her hair and collecting ALL the loose hairs, I kept asking things like, "What am I going to do?" or "How am I going to fix this?" and so on. Abby kept insisting that she looked pretty. Anyway, the next day, as you can see I tried to hide her bald spots with a bandana, which would've worked if she would've kept it in her hair, but Abby is so picky about that and doesn't like anything in her hair. So I started to cut it off. (Sniff,sniff...I loved her long hair.) As I was cutting it she kept telling me not to make her look like a boy. I kept telling her that it was too late for that, she had done a good job of that herself. Well, it is now cut, and I dare say it is kind of cute. Although I'd much rather have it long. As far as learning her lesson. I don't know about that, because later that day she was combing my hair and suddenly I saw my sewing scissors pass by my head. I quickly took them away from her and asked,"What are you doing?" She simply stated, "Cutting your hair."
