It seems my kids seem to get into the most trouble when I am on the telephone. A few weeks ago after being on the telephone for awhile, I turned around and was shocked to see my 2 year old sporting a new haircut that she had given herself.. I couldn't believe she cut her hair! I couldn't decide if I should laugh or cry. In the meantime while Amelia was getting in trouble, her older brother was pretty quite. I kept asking him why he didn't tell me she was doing it. As I kept looking at her new do, I realized that there was no way a 2 year old could have cut their hair so short, especially in the back. Come to find out, Fischer, her older brother did it! So of course, I said "What were you thinking?" I never got an answer to that one.
I found this weeks challenge at Mixed Media Monday very difficult. I almost didn't do the challenge. I had a hard time trying to illustrate my story. I made so many different sketches of it and nothing was working. My brain kind of hurt on this one! Initially I had a boy and a girl in the drawing but I couldn't get it to work right. I'm still not totally happy with it, but sometimes you just have to move on. Not everything works out.
I included a before and after picture of Amelia. She looks like a little Dutch boy now. No tears were shed on my part, it's only hair. Luckily though, it will grow back.
