Deja Vu




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."

Oh Britta, I so feel your pain. Faith has cut her hair twice but it wasn't that bad. Why we girls feel its necessary beats me.

P.S. I love two things about the photos: 1. The mullet pictures...she totally had a mullet there for a little bit!
2. Her total "mug shot" face.

SO FUNNY!!!

OH MY GOODNESS! I talked to Clint on the phone last night and he asked me if I had seen the blog about this. I told him I hadn't checked blogs for a few days. Oh my. I have to agree with Hannah on the mullet thing...oh...I am glad you are good at cutting hair...I think I would have made it worse. Oh my...maybe I need to get her a barbie head that she can cut their hair and not her hair for Christmas. Oh my...she looks so young with it all chopped off, but she still looks cute. Wow! I bet scissors are up high now. I hope James never does that...but he probably will some day. I hope you kept the hair to scrapbook. I will miss her long beautiful hair...but the new do looks cute!

How funny! Abby's hair is cute short too. Short hair must be in! We just cut Sierra's hair and it's darling. Thankfully we iniated the cutting :)

Hey Britta-
My Abby did not need to cut her hair since Sam did it for her. Anyway, I love your music selection on the blog.
