sooner or later

Well, I knew it had to happen sometime.


Look at this face. Realllllly study this sad, sad face. Why do you think this adorable little girl is so sad?

Think about it….hmm, what is she holding up? Is that–no. It isn’t.

Is that a clump of hair?

Yes, it is. And what do you suppose is in the other hand? That’s right: scissors.

“Mom, I axtidentally cut off my hair,” she said.

“Accidentally?” I replied, eyebrow up.

“Axtidentally on purpose.”

“Ah, I see.”

Not too bad, at least. But what did I say? “That is NOT OKAY to cut your own hair. Here, make a very sad face for the camera. That will be your punishment. Next time, ask for a barrette.”

Hee hee. I don’t really mind. It’s only a little. And it had to happen sometime, right?

It’s inevitable! Emma cut herself the cutest side swoopy bangs two summers ago while Ben and I were putting in the screen door to the deck. I was so relieved it wasn’t the back of her hair!

I’m pretty sure that every child at some point in time cuts their own hair. (or even better, has a sibling who cuts it for them) Welcome to the club! Just be glad it was just a little bit of bangs!

I know, that’s why I can’t be mad! Just a little off the top, please…!
