Tragedy

TOMORROW we have family pictures with Nate's family. His cousin does professional photography; Gallery Photography to be exact. He did our wedding pictures too. Anyways, I thought I'd give Kaylee a trim to get ready for the big day! Here is how it looked...

I worked last night, so I got a headache and laid down for a nap after cutting her hair. An hour later I woke up, went into the bathroom, and to my horror there were big NEW chunks of hair in the sink. I thought I would throw up. I came out of the bathroom and there was more hair in her little pretend salon sink. I could have SWORN I put those scissors up!!!!

And yes, it was true. She cut her own beautiful hair on both sides. I did have the top pulled back in twists, preserving some to cover the damage...but it still looks, well, like she cut it herself.



How could this HAPPEN!!!! I never cut my hair when I was little.
Well, I appreciate in advance everyone who sees this and mourns with me. DARN!!!!

Ohh Noo I feel your pain...If you look a few months back on our blog you will see when Addie did the exact same thing, her hair was so long and pretty and she cut it herself so I had to get it cut in a bob...
Hey we got our wedding pics taken from Gallery Photography too, is his cousin Kelly? That is crazy if it is, he does an awesome job!

Oh my goodness! How tragic for sure. And of course it has to happen right before pictures! I can only imagine finding all that hair in the sink. She is still super cute, and at least it will grow back.

Oh Sarah! That is so sad, I am mourning with you in spirit. Sad thing is I was one of those little girls who loved to cut my own hair and my little sisters too. Alisha and Aubrey can attest to that. My mom was always so mad cause I would go for the hair on the top and in the front so you couldn't hide it. Good thing you can kind of hide it behind the top hair. I can't wait to see your family pictures, I am sure they will turn out beautiful!

Oh so sad. And right before pictures too. Thank goodness she's still adorable, so your pictures will still look cute.
I had cut my own hair when I was about 4. Funny thing I remember doing it too. It was all uneven with one side to the scalp, because I was leaning sideways from the tub to the sink. We kids had been left with a babysitter. My mom came home from taking my grandparent to the airport and saw long brown strands on the floor.

Oh my goodness :( If I would have seen the hair in the sink I would have thrown up for sure! How come everything always happens before pictures?? I am sorry! It will grow back though! :)

My oldest Daughter would cut her hair all the time. It started when she was about 3. The last time she did it she was 8, just before her school pictures. She literally cut the hair off of one side and in the back. I had to take her to get her hair cut, very short! After people calling her a boy several time after, she never cut her hair again.

this is a tragedy! horrible. i am so sorry, but it also made me laugh really hard. Derek's niece just did this not too long ago but she is five and has really long hair. She told me she tried to cut her bangs which were straight across, like mine where they are a little shorter and swoop. oh man she cut her sides into bangs, she had a hardcore mullet. So at least your lil one did it underneath some of her hair. and at least she didn't cut herself. :) that is the bright side. i am sorry dear.

Kathy Nielson said...

This is honestly my worst nightmare. I am sorry that this happened, and I just hope I can hope it won't happen with my little girl one day. Your girls are so beautiful!! Just like their momma:)

Gary and Jenessa said...

OH SARAH! That is a true tragedy! And that is so close to the scalp so pretty much no fixin it. But definitely a good thing she has hair to cover it. I am so sorry that is awful!

Pieces of Us said...

Oh noo! I'm sorry! That has got to be the worse. Look at the bright side..it's just hair, it will grow back. Nice timing though... =(

Kallee and Duncan said...

LOL thats funny...but not funny. I am sorry for this sarah....be grateful that you can kinda hide. When I cut my hair when I was little lets just say I looked like a boy when i was done. Be happy that she she didn't go that far
