melody's bad hair day




Today is a day I won't forget. I was doing my own thing this morning... taking a shower, etc. The girls were watching a DVD, like they usually do each morning when I take a shower. I walked into the living room where they were and noticed a big chunk of Mel's hair on the couch. I looked at her with a startled expression and said, "DID YOU CUT YOUR HAIR!???" Her response was nonchalant, "Yeah, I wanted a short cut. I tried to get it everywhere." She succeeded at both of these. Her short cut was like a mullet on one side of her face. As Ellen pointed out later, the short cut was also very emo. A pair of skinny jeans and some skull art on her shoes would have finished the look nicely. (What's up the all the skulls?! Any other moms creeped out by this?)

We headed to Walmart for a haircut. Melody seemed pleased with herself. She is always vying for control of our days. Today she won. We were going to stay home all day working on the house and laundry. I'll post pictures of the new do tomorrow...

Going for an object lesson, I showed this to Char then asked if it was pretty - she said yes. Huh.

I had to tell her it didn't look pretty and that's why we DON'T cut our own hair. Then once again reinforced who cuts hair and asked her to tell me who is allowed to cut her hair. The lesson was obviously not as simple as I'd planned.

Am I feeling nervous by her thinking Mel's self-done cut was pretty?

ps...my word verification is "poise"...

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

I can't believe it.

Silver Lining: Her face couldn't be any more beautiful. You could shave her, and she's be gorgeous.

OH fun! I have had three girls do this in one form or another. It grows and really, someday you'll laugh about it. She's beautiful, she can carry off whatever coif she wishes! great stuff. M
