Below are pictures of the last 3 days and 3 haircuts for Kelly.
To start Molly has been asking to cut a lot of her hair off and I have put her off for awhile - but during a 4 day house arrest with 3 cases of pink eye I caved. One night once Jon got home we washed her hair and then cut off over 8 inches so she could donate it to kids who need wigs. Her sisters saw and wanted to be apart of this too but only Kelly had enough to donate. I allowed her to do this so we had 2 girls with pretty short hair and Riley did get a little cut but not 8 inches. The girls got one day with their new hair style that I had cut and then Molly felt she needed to help Kelly out.
I went to workout with a friend and came home and noticed something was off with Kelly's hair. I sat there thinking man did I really butcher her hair I thought I kept the front pretty long and so I asked what happened to Kelly's hair. Molly burst into hysterical tears which gave away that something had indeed happened. Jon and I asked her to show us where she got the scissors so she took us up to our bathroom and showed us the upper shelf of the medicine cabinet -all while having an emotional breakdown with full on wailing at this point. Jon had to leave for work and left me with this awesome scene where I just kept walking away because I didn't want to say something I would regret. Right before taking her to school I asked why did you do it - her response was "I thought it would be great, but it wasn't" again weeping the words out. I called my mom to get another adults views on what I should do. The plan was to have Molly pay for Kelly's haircut but there were no open appointments so we came home and I just thought is there anyway I can fix this - I'm not really that good of a hairstylist. When we got home from trying to get the hair fixed I sent the little 2 up for naps and had Molly write - I will not cut hair. 10 times. By the time she finished writing them I could see she was about to lose it so I said "you know I love you" and she burst into tears again. This time over and over "I thought it would be great, but it wasn't." I don't think she will be cutting hair again anytime soon. We had our bible study tonight and I asked our friend to help me fix it so Kelly got her third haircut in 3 days.
