I had a different post ready to go for today... Sweet Surprises, I planned on titling it. It was going to be heart-warming; about the wonderful little things our darling sweet kiddos do to make life full and happy...
But then Gracie got a hold of some scissors and hacked her bangs off last night, and I thought, "There is absolutely no way I'm skipping a post about this event." So, I thought better about my planned post, and here is a different kind of surprise post instead.
Surprise! Gracie now looks like Bjork!
Yes, she regrets her decision. Oh boy does she ever! But unfortunately, this isn't the first time Gracie has done this. The last time she did it (blogged about here) she was two and a half, and it happened to be her first hair-cut ever. Hurray for funny first hair-cut stories for the baby book! It took a full year and a half to grow back, as Gracie's hair grows very, very slowly. I figured that at the age of four, she would know better than to cut her hair again, especially as having pretty "princess" hair is a big deal for her.
Good thing for Gracie: We live in a small west Texas town where mullets run rampant. She fits right in!
Also good for Gracie: After staring at her in shocked disbelief -- and then hiding my snickering behind my hands -- I took her out to the store for an emergency hair-repair shopping trip.
Now she's back to her usual self.
And we are just going to pretend that she doesn't have any bangs at all for awhile. Ah, those darling kiddos and their surprises.
