Gracie's New Hairstyle

Grace took it upon herself to experiment with her scissors on something other than paper today. It's hard not to laugh because we have some friends whose daughter also did this years ago. My first instinct tonight was to call them as soon as this happened to figure out how they dealt with it.

Anyway, apparently, this all happened during Grace's quiet/nap time today. Her school supplies are in a storage unit in her room, which we only take out when she does her homework. I wonder if she got the idea because Jason just cut his hair last night. Not only did she experiment on her own bangs, she pretty much gave all of her dolls new looks. When we discovered her "new look," Jason made her sit on her bed, closed the door, went into the family room, and the two of us lost it- we laughed so hard. It was even harder to go back in and talk to her without both of us cracking up. It's going to take quite some time for those bangs to grow back in, considering how short she cut them. I don't even know how to "fix" them, so I guess that's how they'll have to be until they grow out. I really hope her preschool classmates don't give her too rough a time tomorrow when they see her. Ah, the joys of parenting!

OH MY WORD! I can remember, sooo vividly, walking around that corner and seeing Audrey standing on that chair with the scissors in her hand! And they still looked funny on her first trip to Disneyland, 2 months later. But those memories are just priceless!
