Slice of Life 29

Millie

Today, I finally faced it - one of the most dreaded parenting moments of all.  Mille had been working quietly on an art project in her own corner of the room while Pat and I discussed our day. Pat living the life of soon-to-be Dad is headed off to the F1 race, and I have the exciting task of completing the week's grocery shopping.  Fair? I think not, but when your  9+ months pregnant there are many things which just don't seem fair at this point.  But, I digress.  Anyway, one moment we are chatting about our day, and in the next, there is Millie.  Yellow scissors in one hand and a lock of blonde hair in the other.  Yes, you guessed it.  Her first selfie - selfie haircut that is.

Holding back a scream, I frantically spun Millie around trying to assess the damage.  Fortunately, our child is blessed with enough hair that I couldn't find a hole... But, let me tell you, I was not impressed. Pat was amused, I think, but he had enough sensitivity to suppress his laugher - the look of shock and horror on my face was enough to keep him in check!  A time out, a few tears, and some confiscated scissors later, Millie and I have had a meeting of the minds, I hope. She will no longer cut her own hair. Instead, she will leave this particular task to the professionals.
