Accidents Happen

I thought, I'd better warn you...accidents happen.

Especially when you have a migraine and are just trying to live until nap time. And then you sit in the room with the little Flower until she falls asleep, because you have a foreboding feeling that something could happen. But once she is sound asleep, you feel that all is safe, so you creep away seeking the darkness of a quiet room for your aching head.

Accidents can still happen.

Because she may wake up. And as she makes her way to her toy room, your large recliner may accidently jump in front of her, placing her in the little corner where you keep your cross stitch materials.

And while she is in the corner, that she is not allowed to be in but is now accidently there, the scissors may accidently jump into her hands. Not just any scissors, the extra-pointy-extra-sharp ginghers.

And while the extra-pointy-extra-sharp scissors are accidently in her hand, they may accidently jump up and cut some of her long, beautiful blond hair. Accidently. On both sides and in the fringe. And these remnants may accidently be left behind as evidence.

All of this will of course lead to a rushed visit to the hair dresser the next morning.

Where you may find yourself accidently smiling, because the new do is kind of cute as well.

So consider yourself warned....accidents happen. Just ask Flower.

I am so glad she didn't cut off so much that it couldn't be fixed.

Looks good, maybe she will be a hairdresser when she grows up.

I am sorry, but could not help put smile reading this post. Flower has the cutest look on her face :)
I think that we all try to be hair-dressers when we are that age.

Be blessed today and always...

Yep. This accident has happened at our house too, except it involved TWO kids and much shorter haircuts (a buzz cut for our son!). I'll never forget the feeling of panic I felt when I saw a bucket full of my daughter's long hair. Your picture of the pile of hair brought it right back to me!

It's a good story now, right?

All children do this at this age - truly. I have a two page scrapbook spread documenting this very exact thing with my daughter at this age. I even saved the hair in a little clear plastic pocket ;)
