I failed to heed my own warning.
All this just four days before she performs her flower girl duties in my cousin’s wedding.
I didn’t think about the potential since I was just in the kitchen finishing the dishes and she was having a grand time cutting her Sponge Bob coloring book into little pieces, much like she did on our Seattle trip.
At least her hair is curly so it just looks layered. Like the lead singer in a 1980’s rock band, that is. I remained surprisingly calm as I had her repeat the phrase, “Only Mama can cut my hair, not Maddie,” about 20 times.
I didn’t get a picture of it but she cut the very top piece of her bangs all the way back to the middle of her head. It could be much worse. She could have cut the bottom portion of her bangs all the way to her scalp.
I best remember to keep scissors secure lest she attempts that look.
