LMAO! Yes, I don't know why C-D doesn't offer that one as a regular smiley. It's just a PITA cuz I have to log into photobucket and grab it....is there an easier way?

I gave myself a haircut at around the same age.....now that I think about it. I guess we were too poor to afford the Barbie Hair Stylist set, so I made my own. Only, mine didn't grow back out when I pulled on it.

Anyone know of a great kids stylist / salon on the far north side / Stone Oak area?? I normally cut my own kids' hair, but this is beyond me. I don't even know where to start in fixing this.

(Okay...breath in, breath out. It will grow back. Just relax. Do not strangle 5-year-old child. Do not strangle 5-year-old child. Research boarding schools -- yes!! Strangulation -- no.)
Relax, breathe in and out...my daughter's cousin did a similar deed years ago. Try Victoria at Great Clips Brook Hollow...she can work miracles!!

Default Update

Thanks for the comments everyone -- I took the plunge and gave her a short, cropped haircut last night so at least it's a bit more even. Thankfully her hair is quite curly -- particularly in this humid air -- and is hiding the bald spots.

Older child came clean late last night and said she cut her sister's hair because she didn't want it to be long like hers. Typical sibling rivalry at its best.

I did take pics to mail to grandma and recall the "humor" in all this in years to come. Mostly adding this to a long list of reasons I can and will make my 5-year-old's life a living nightmare when she's a teenager. "Oh, so you want to stay out an hour past curfew? The answer would be NO! And let me show you why -- Exhibit A: A photo of the famous haircut incident of 2009... Exhibit B...a photo of the cat after you colored her with magic markers...Exhibit C..."

I have been down this road twice (I have three girls). First time, my oldest (then 5, must be the age?) cut my 3 year olds hair and then her own. The second time, my 3 year old (then 4) did it to herself. It will grow out! When I went in to "fix" the haircut, the stylist told me it was the 2nd child that week. You are not alone! We have picture proof also to use as blackmail down the road. Can't put a price on that!

My oldest has curly hair also and it does help. My middle child, not so much. She walked around with a terrible hackjob-even with a professionals help-for months.

I always say, "Curly hair covers a multitude of sins!"

Not to mention that fact you can PRAY that she has little ones that think JUST like she did when she becomes a mommy!!! You did good mom, KNOW she pushed your buttons yesterday!

The differance between a good haircut and a bad haircut is 3 weeks. they are kids, let it grow and enjoy the humor of it in time.
