Scissors and my 5 yr old don't mix

Last weekend, Maddy thought it was a great idea to cut her hair! I didn't notice it at first but when I did...I nearly lost it! As I began undoing her ponytails I could feel my temperature rising. I couldn't believe that she decided to butcher her hair. 

One part of me wanted to cry while the other part wanted to laugh uncontrollably. Crazy, I know. She didn't have an answer as to why she did it. (Which upset me even more.)  In a moment of frustration, I called my mom to vent and she quickly reminded me, that I too, decided to give myself my first haircut.

So I guess its true, history repeats itself, lol!

Parents, you are not alone. So if you find yourself in a similar situation there are a few things you can do.

1. Access the damage and see how much of the hair can be salvaged. In my case, she took out a lot of her temple. So it was bang life for us!

2. Decide if you can fix or you need a professional. I'm very picky when it comes to my children's hair so I opt to fix things myself. If you're not brave enough check out a local Walmart, they usually offer haircuts for children for under $12.

3. Choose hairstyles wisely! Sure we know it's their fault but you don't want your child looking completely crazy!
