~ Haircuts by Addy ~

Tonight while I finished up some work on the computer, the girls stood on each side of me on little stools brushing my hair and styling it with bows and hair ties. Even though I was battling hair tugs, I still managed to stay completely focused on sending some invoices and emailing ship date messages. So focused, that I was oblivious to the fact that Addy had hopped down from her stool, disappeared to her room only to return with a pair of scissors in hand. Yep, I heard the snip of scissors just above my ear and an immediate burst of nausea set in. I am guessing that the look I gave Addy as I pulled out a chunk of freshly snipped hair must have been pretty good as she immediately started crying and screaming, "I didn't mean to, I didn't mean to! I want to go to Nana and Papa's house!"

Oh my gosh, that is hilarious!!! I read this story out loud to Dave, and Eze laughed with us when I finished reading it. (I love when he pretends to get what we're laughing about :)

My favorite was what she said afterward. Your girls are so funny! I hope it didn't leave a noticeable chunk!!

That is so funny! At first I was reading thinking "oh no, I'm going to have a girl soon and I don't know how to teach how to do girlie stuff like that". Now after completing the post, I wonder if that's okay that I don't teach her that,haha. I'm sorry that it happened to you, but it will grow back and you'll laugh about it forever. I'm glad to see you have such a good sense of humor to blog about it:)

Thankfully, I have kind of a stacked haircut in the back so it blends in for the most part.

Today, when asked what she did to mommy, Addy just makes a scissor motion with her fingers.

Jenny. This is priceless. Tyler (5) and Emily (2) recently "trimmed" Katelyn's (4) hair. Really not too bad, but I flipped out. I don't know what I would have done if it had been MY hair. Just found your blogspot off of facebook page. I was getting curious about your adoption status, so now I can check in and see how things are going. Good luck. I'll keep you in my prayers.
