What is that you ask? You would be right to assume my carpet needs a serious vacuuming - living in a house with two furry dogs and two furry (okay not furry but messy) kids - it normally does. However the carpet had actually been vacuumed just a couple of hours before this picture was taken.
This is my apology to all the mothers out there that I have judged when their children cut their own hair. I always had the same response when I heard a child had done that: "What kind of mother leaves a child alone with a pair of scissors long enough for that to happen? That is just bad parenting."
Well now we know, apparently I'm that kind of mother - hence the gobs of hair on the floor. Thankfully my daughter has a pretty thick mane and you cannot tell she went all Edward Scissorhands on her head - but I was not pleased when I found out that she had done this.
This is something I would expect from our crazy 2.5 year old and so he is never allowed to be alone with anything sharper than a tennis ball, but my smart, rule following, timid daughter? Never in a million years would I have thought she would have been that kid - or more importantly I would be that mom. I'm guessing this is a first in a very long line of days that I am going to have to eat my words.
Originally an Okie, I ended up in Kansas City by way of Lawrence, KS, Chicago, IL and Denver, CO. My husband and I have 3 kids.
As of a few weeks ago I am a full time stay at home mom. Boy oh boy, let's see how this goes.
My blog covers all the dumb stuff we do around here and believe me there is a lot of it.
