Here is little miss innocent on Valentines Day...enjoying her tulips and teddy that
her daddy sent to her that day. Notice the beautiful LONG curls on her head.
Here is what I saw when she came down the stairs from her nap yesterday. Words cannot explain the devastation that suddenly came over me.... I mean, I have heard of those "other kids" cutting their own hair.
But a full on hair cut!
I mean, all the way around the head???
all of the back...(other then a rat tail)
I felt the back of her neck thinking......... trying to understand how my baby girl could have done this.
After the many many manymany tears I shed....I made it clear never to do that again!
Which was hard because I knew she felt bad enough and she wanted her long hair back but didn't understand that it could not re-attach itself.
And I must say...
This girl has got some hair cuttin' skills! The back was soooo straight!
Then I questioned her as to where her "hair" was.
She told me in her room on the floor...
I know...gasp...ughhhhhhhh, that was a tough one to swallow.
All her beautiful curls on the floor. This was the neat little pile that she left it in.
(why is this underlined?? I can't get it to go away)
Anyways...after the shock set in I took her up to my bathroom and evened it all out. I shaped up her new layers and bangs and here are a few after shots :)
I guess I am just thankful that she did not take the scissors to her scalp or cut herself!
everytime she looks in the mirror she gets a little sad because she says she looks like a boy now...
So I tell her not to ever do it again and that
She is beautiful no matter what her hair looks like!
Hey, we are the Elmers! Brad, Katie, Kammy(almost 5), Jameson(2) and Beckett (almost 5 months). We (Brad and Katie) have been married six years now, and have been together for nine! Where does the time go, can't say that enough! We have the cutest kids ever, they bring so much laughter into our home. Kammy is always saying something new, she's our little comedian. She is not shy, at least not when you get to know her. Jameson is our handsom, high maintenance, "terrible two's loving" toddler. He is so sweet, when he's not being a grumpy pain in the butt haha! Beckett is our most smiley child of the three. All you have to do is look at him and you get an ear to ear grin. He is almost an exact replica (boy version of course) of his older sister. We love all of our kids (3 children and 3 dogs) more than we can express and we couldn't feel more complete...at least as of right now...
