I bought my 5-y-o DS a new pair of safety scissors today, since he wore his old ones out. We were going to start working on making Valentine's cards.
Long story short -- phone rang, I was away for about 3 minutes. When I returned, my 2 1/2 y-o DD who has never had a haircut was now sporting a left-sided mullet and a 2-inch circumference of a bald spot on the crown of her head. DS cut the hair down to the roots.
Surprisingly, I wasn't mad, just sad. I cried for about 2 hours, I think. Then I went on an ebay spending spree and bought about 5 outfits with matching hats!
I don't think DS has ever seen me cry. He felt absolutely terrible, and gave me his "Martin" to sleep with tonight. He has never, ever slept without his buddy Martin.
Any ideas what I should do? About the hair, I mean? The only way to blend it in would be to shave her whole head, I think. Hats for the next 2 years?
(BTW, I realize this has nothing to do with my December babe, but you guys are such a huge part of my life now, I had to share this "tragedy" with you. Oh, and it's okay to laugh. I know someday, maybe in 25 years or so, I'll be able to laugh about this, too.)
