We went over to Aunt Missy's today to see if she could try to fix Charly's hair. This is what she had to work with:

Missy is a genius.
It looks really cute. Missy parted the hair on the other side so we could create some length on the left side, and it turned out to be a really cute little bob. Charly has had a hard time with it today, but she'll get used to it. Here she is at the beginning of the blow dry. . . holding in the cry
On the verge of tears:
And then there was a total melt down. She cried over the loss of her long hair. She was so so sad, and so it made me sad. This is after the meltdown when we were able to talk about it. I had just finished saying that I wished I could make it long again, but I can't. She made a choice, and it's going to take a while for it to grow back.
This is such a great lesson to learn. We need to be thankful in all circumstances. Her hair is adorable, and she still has a full head of it. Thanks to Missy, it still looks cute too! There is MUCH to be thankful for, and mommy is SO SO grateful that Ridge & Charly weren't hurt. Those scissors had come awfully close to the scalp on both of them (safety scissors really aren't THAT safe).
