My Worst Fear Come True

Macie Cut Her Hair!

I don't know if I have ever been so upset with any of my kids as I am with Macie right now.
Matt, Maya and I were in my scrapbook room setting
up Matt's face book account and I thought Mae was watching a show on TV. Little did I know, she was watching TV with a pair of SCISSORS!!! Normally this wouldn't be a problem. She loves to just sit and cut a piece of paper into a thousand tiny shreds, which I always thought was fine, it kept her very entertained and helped develop dexterity. Unfortunately this time her HAIR was cut into a thousand tiny pieces.
My heart dropped into the pit of my stomach wh
en Maya left the room and I heard her gasp and say in a very worried voice, "Mom, I think Macie cut her hair!" I ran into the family room to find Macie looking at me with very nervous eyes, half her hair GONE and a pile of hair with scissors on the coffee table next to her.
Of course, I started crying! I immediately picked her
up and stuck her in time out. I told her that we should NEVER, NEVER cut our hair and that now she wouldn't be able to have braids (which are her favorite), pony tails or curls. I asked her if she felt sad about cutting her hair off and she said "no", can you believe that?! I know darn well she feels bad, she had silent tears streaming down her face, she's just so dang stubborn she won't admit it! I, on the other hand am torn between throwing up and kicking her!
I so hope that this is fixable or blendable . . . something!!!

I can't believe she did that.... ok I can. I am sorry but it is funny and one day you will both laugh. Until then good luck and I know she will look so cute with short hair...

WOW! I remember cutting my hair in kindergarten, I was in big trouble. Remember it will grow back & I agree with Julie it will look cute short and one day (probably not soon) you will laugh.

Hey at least she didn't do what Andee did and cut another little girls hair!
When Andee was in Kindergarten, she cut the little girls braid off that was sitting in front of her. hahahah
BIG trouble!

It seems as though you are not a certified mother of girls until one of them cuts their own hair. I can't believe you've avoided it for this long!! Hilary did a number on herself when she was just about that age. Good news is it grows back and you have good stories to tell her children.
