The pleasantness and fun was over when Ella came down holding a pair of scissors and some strands of hair. I immediately ran for the stairs and entered the playroom to find Kate and Sarah happily cutting away at each other's hair...it seemed as if there was hair everywhere. Apparently everyone had a hand in both the cutting and in being trimmed.
Oh, there was lots of ranting and raving on my part, but amazingly after I confiscated all the scissors and settled down I discovered that I couldn't even tell where Ella and Maggie's hair had been cut. Kate and Sarah were not so lucky, but I don't have any pictures of my little Rascals yet.
While I was complaining about the goofy hair to Kate this afternoon she declared, "I'll just go brush it out. Then it looks bootiful." When I told her that SHE was, in fact, still beautiful, just her hair wasn't looking too cute anymore, she said, "But mommy, I like it that way!"
