Never make empty threats--that's one of the first rules of parenting. I should have remembered that before I threatened to cut Hannah's hair if she didn't stop chewing on it. Really, cutting her hair hurts me more than her.
Cute hair moments:
She looks nervous-- She knew I wasn't pleased with her, even if she didn't really mind the punishment. Daddy teased her that she'd look like a boy, but afterward, she said she looked like a tennis-girl...and wants to take lessons.The chin length cut.
And the happy girl:Of course, her new 'do is cute. I actually really like it. I'm just taking a moment to mourn the loss of her beautiful long hair. I need to remember all the times she's screamed and cried as I've tried to comb her long hair, and the frustration of watching her chew on her hair and make it sticky with food.
This has been a bit traumatic for me--can you tell?
