What is it about scissors?

What is it about scissors that make children want to cut their hair?   I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. I'm pretty sure Ellie and Silas both cut their hair at an earlier age.  I was thinking maybe Avrie was learning from their mistakes. Apparently my soon-to-be six year old girlie would rather learn first-hand why it's not such a great idea.

Sweet Avrie found a small pair of scissors from a sewing kit and lopped off a 6 inch long hunk of her hair in the front. Of course not exactly in the front where we could incorporate some bangs. Nope. Sort of in the middle/side/ish part of her head.  I admit it could have been worse.   Like when Ellie cut her bangs down to about 1/2 inch long. I really should look those pictures up.

Here she is in all her glory.

Thankfully you can't really tell when it's down. Sadly I can't pull it back in the constantly-asked-for-all-up-pony-tail that she loves. Her bangs had just gotten long enough to make it work.  Poor thing. As soon as she did it she knew it wasn't too smart.

Live and learn. 

Have a blessed day! ~Tammy

Oh no!

I had 4 boys before our first girl and we keep their hair buzzed, so I didn't even think to keep the scissors away from my daughter. She originally cut her hair when she just 2. :P

Hair cut or not, your daughter is super cute :)

Christy - Yes, my oldest daughter cut her hair early on and then she did it *again* when she was about 4 or 5. I was so surprised that Avrie hadn't done it yet.

I will have to agree with you...she is super cute! LOL We are having her 6yo birthday party today and she is quite excited. :)
