Raelin's Haircut

Do you like Raelin's haircut? Bangs and layers...they look pretty cute, don't you think? Well, there's just one problem: SHE DID IT HERSELF!!!! Yup, she's on her way to becoming a hairstylist. Her bangs were a little long and in her eyes, so I shortened them up just a little bit. But the rest was all her. Don't any of you dare tell her how cute her haircut is either! I'll never hear the end of it-- "But Mommy, I know how to do it! I can do a good job and I want it cut! I promise I won't mess up. I did it good last time!" Yeah, let's just not go there.
So I wrote this post a few days ago, but the pictures wouldn't load, so I just saved it. Guess what happened in the meantime. Yup, she took the scissors to her hair again. Yesterday, she was supposed to be taking a nap, but she snuck downstairs and CARRIED a chair from the kitchen to the living room (I would have heard her if she'd dragged it) and got scissors and candy off the top shelf of the bookshelves. She cut open the candy package and dumped all the candy into the recliner crevices and then she cut her hair and her clothes. Once again, it doesn't look too bad! Her hair, that is--the clothes are camping clothes now. Her bangs are a little short and the layers she added are only on her right side, but they are still cute layers! How does she manage that?!? I think we found her calling in life. She tells me what she wants me to do with her hair a lot--stuff that I wouldn't have thought of. After I do it how she tells me, I'm always stunned at what a cute idea it is! I don't have pictures of her newest haircut yet, but I'll get them up as soon as I can. I still have Raelin's birthday and Thanksgiving to catch up on--I got behind this month.
