Running With Scissors, sort of

Some things are best left to the professionals. For example artfully preparing fois grois, representing ones self in legal matters and trimming the bangs of an almost 2 year old that has NO desire to sit still. Ergo, the literal running with scissors. Devon's bangs were getting long and I was feeling too cheap to go the fancy kid salon so I took matters (and scissors) into my own hands. She ran around the living room and laughed and I chased her and mumbled under my breath. Her perfectly straight hair is a wee bit crooked. Needless to say, she will be sporting little fountain ponytails for a while and I will never attempt this haircutting business again! She's smiling because she hasn't looked into a mirror yet to see what I did
Ketchup makes perfect lipstick

All pulled up....no one is the wiser

She still loves me :)

Your so funny!!!, She really is just cute as can, love her top ponytail. Mu hubby cut the boys hair....(having no previous hair cutting experience I should say)way to short, they both looked like bowling ball heads. We won't be doing that again either :)
Have a great weekend!!

I did that too to Mia! Only I cut hers so stinking short! My goodness I would have to say Devon is one of the most beautiful little girls I have ever seen! You did a great job masking the bangs!!

She is just a doll!

She'll forgive you I'm sure as long as you NEVER do it again!! LOL!! She's a cutie anyway!

I also want to say I know the feeling of cutting hair crooked as I tired it once myself!
