Yep folks…I thought you all might enjoy a little Monday morning laugh at Savannah’s expense…
I was enjoying a nice little Saturday Christmas brunch with friends when I received a photo text from my dear, sweet husband- who was at home, “watching the kids”. (cough, cough)
Our overly sophisticated, smart as an 18 year old, sassy as a 13 year old, darling diva of a 3 year old daughter, had managed to give herself a haircut- using scissors that had been accidentally placed in the wrong drawer. (We had to move them months ago from curious toddlers who are much taller than they used to be).
Joe claimed that Savannah pranced upstairs where he and the boys were watching Disney’s “Cars” (naturally)…and exclaimed, “Daddy! Daddy! Do you like my pretty haircut?!”
As she casually sat down to watch the flick, Joe caught a good look at her profile and thought, “oh jeez”…He ran downstairs to find several long clumps of hair on the kitchen floor and scissors laying on the counter.
Let me also take this time to mention that Savannah, at this point in the morning, had already gotten into my makeup bag and had given herself a makeover.
JOE! WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE YOU DOING WHILE I WAS GONE?!!!! He claims that he was “watching” a movie upstairs---but we all know that he had probably fallen asleep (doesn’t take much).
I laughed SO hard when I saw her…(she was SO proud of herself)…and I immediately gave her a quick lesson about why we do NOT play with scissors, nor try to give ourselves/brothers haircuts. EVERRRRRRRRRR! Then I took her to the salon to get “fixed”.
Its SHORRRRT! (and just when her hair was FINALLY getting long! It takes forever to grow!)
You KNOW its baaaaad when the hair stylist cannot stop laughing as she surveys the damage and tries to figure out how in the world can she manipulate the tattered remains into any type of feminine cut. She kept saying, “Oh hunnney (giggles)…you are going to make a great stylist someday! You even knew to cut hair from both sides. (giggle, giggle)”
There were no layers in the back, so of course- I had to come home and stack her bob. Turned out pretty cute.
Going to be wearing a lot of these:
maybe even pierce those ears?…lol
A recap, because I cannot stop laughing at these pictures:
So, I know that apparently this is a certain rite of passage that almost all girls go through at some time or another…(the majority at age 3?! What is up with that?!)
I am DYING to know your stories! Have your kids ever given themselves/siblings/others a haircut? Do tell!
