it was bound to happen sooner or later


Violet gave herself a haircut.  In fact, I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner, actually.

Snipping the hair off all her toys is just about the only activity that will keep her occupied for longer than 10 minutes.  So I’m all for it.  I walked out onto the porch last Sunday where she had been trimming the stuffed kiwi bird and discovered her holding this in one hand…


…scissors in the other and looking at me with a mix of fear and excitement.   “I wanted to have hair like yours!”

Well.  Geez.  She SO knows how to play us.

I’m just happy she didn’t do this to herself:


Off to the salon.  No barber shop this time. And NO LOLLIPOP.


It does look awfully cute.


The scissors are now hidden.

    She looks gorgeous. My sweet Violet! I can’t wait to see her and have her show it off to me. Tell her that Miss Amber thinks she looks beautiful. I miss you guys so much!

    She does look gorgeous and sooo grown up! What will little Miss Violet do next??? You have to admit that she definitely makes you see the world in a whole new way.

    She is just soooo cute (and very creative)! And I love her little color streaks too.

    I keep looking at these photos because they capture perfectly Violet’s range of feelings during the event. Brilliant shooting Cheris!
