Lily Cuts Her Own Hair

Lily’s hair has never been cut apart from her fringe when little and a tiny trim one other time. Her hair had golden ringlets on the ends and I’d just got her fringe grown out.

Lily's hair before yesterday

Just before tea yesterday she sneaked the sharp kitchen scissors and hid under a table in the lego room. After snipping and hacking she hid the wads of hair in a shoe.

This is some of the hair she snipped off

Susanna found her and we all got a surprise. Matthew groaned – he liked her long curls. I didn’t say a thing while I absorbed what had happened.

Later in the evening I pondered how to fix it so it didn’t look so peculiar. Here is the new look:

It will grow again!
