A couple of days ago, we bought Lindsey some children's scissors so she could learn how to cut paper. We pulled them out last night and she was so excited. I gave her a few warnings about not cutting anything but the paper and away we went. Today she was still pretty excited about cutting, so I gave them to her while I paid a few bills. The next thing that I know, she comes up to me saying, "Look at my pretty hair, Mommy. Now it looks just like yours!" She was very proud of herself because her bangs were now out of her face. I calmly asked her if she had done that with the scissors, and she said that she had. I then tried to explain to her that we don't cut our own hair. Mommy does that or we go to someone special to cut our hair for us. She got really upset when I told her that I was going to have to take the scissor away because she cut her hair. She also thought that Daddy might cry and be upset when he saw what she had done. Of course, I snapped a few pictures. I swore up and down that MY child would never ever be the one to cut her own hair. I guess I was wrong. Please tell me that every child has to experiment with scissors and their own hair at some point. I am just really thankful that she didn't get ahold of Megan's hair!
P.S. Any ideas on how to fix this? It is cut almost down to the scalp.
