So, the night of the zoo, I let Hazel spend the night over at her cousins house (Thanks for taking her Amy). I thought I would try to give the other kids a good time at home. I set up some sleeping bags and put on a movie and gave them a bunch of candy, and didn't make them brush their teeth. Could I be any cooler? Violet came up at one point with a care bear in her arms, crying, saying Thomas had cut the little curl of hair off the top of all of her bears. I took the scissors, and thought that was the end of it. I hear a lot of playing, and just ignore it, mostly because I didn't feel like leaving the comfort of the couch, and the good company I was spending time with.
I wake up the next morning with Atticus, and shortly after I have him eating breakfast, Violet waddles sleepily up the stairs. Her hair was bird's nesty, like it usually is when she wakes up, but it seemed different. I call her to come closer...She explained to me that she wanted hair like Hazel's, and asked Thomas if he could make it happen. He gave it a try. He told me that without Hazel to model he didn't know how short to cut it, so he thought he should cut it to eye length, just to make sure. I have seen worse kid haircuts, so after a time out and an unnecessarily long lecture he seemed regretful. The funny thing is, at lunch that day, he didn't want to sit next to her. He said her hair was grossing him out.
