When I was 4 and my oldest sister was 5 (yeah irish twins, 10 1/2 months apart..) she decided to cut my hair. I have a vague memory of being held down for this. Anyway when my mother saw it she was furious because I had long thick blonde hair....that was transformed into a chopped up bob type thing. So she took us to the hair salon and told the beutician to cut my sisters hair like mine! Now I was young and I don't remember that part, but this is what I was told by my aunt years later...however my memory of my grandmother's reaction is my own...it went something to the effect of "now you have two daughters with ugly hair!"...LOL

I have to say my mother died shortly after that but I will always remember that story, and I have used that theme in disciplining my boys...it works really well!

Default Cut his eyebrow...

My son snipped out part of one of his eyebrows when he was about 5 or 6. I kept asking him why he did this and he just kept replying "that it just seemed like a good idea at the time" I don't think he continued to think it was a good idea after that, though, because I forced him to let me "fill in" the part he cut out with an eyebrow pencil until it grew out!

Ha Ha!..Yeah my son wouldn't have liked that either...LOL My little sister had beautiful long eyelashes when she was little and people used to comment on them all the time...well one day she got tired of hearing it so she cut them off! Well it was a nightmare because everthing would get stuck in her eyes until they grew back...but at 5 you just don't understand those things.
