Back In SA...Jetlag Proves Disastrous!

Well, we arrived back to South Africa on Thursday. We had a good flight and the kids have slowly adjusted to the time change...sleeping a little later each morning. Saturday, however, had a little unexpected excitement. Jeremy and I thought it a good idea for everyone to have a quiet time, so the kids watched a movie in their room and we watched a movie in our room. We ended up giving in to the jetlag and falling asleep. I awoke suddenly and went into the living room to see what time it was and what the kids were doing. I found my kids sitting on the couch...Joshua scissors in hand and Emma Grace happy to be getting attention. I shrieked in horror to find a pile of beautiful hair on the couch! This was Joshua's proud creation The picture doesn't really do it justice. Joshua's reply when asked what prompted him to do this? "It was just too long!" Yes, it was. Long and beautiful. I haven't figured out how to fix it. If I were to cut it even to the shortest strands, it would be above her shoulders, just below her ears. I just can't bring myself to do it! I'm not sure what I'll do...

My mom reminded me the other day of how I helped my sister out when she was tired of her bangs... I cut them right off, down to the roots! She and I were happy with the results, but mom was horrified.

And for months my sister's bangs grew back standing straight up. Good thing I decided to pursue engineering rather than hair dressing!!

Hey Jen....layers are in! I wouldn't cut it for sure. Maybe you could just try adding a few more layers in to even it out, then wait for it to grow out before you even it out all the way.
That is just my two cents because her hair is so cute long!
Steve wants to know when you took the picture of Joshua with the scissors in his hand. Was it right after the deed or later after you had calmed down :-)
Oh the adventures our kids involve us in!

WHOA! I just read about your haircutting experience. Her hair is so long and pretty. I ca't believe Joshua cut it. I know its probably not funny to you, but I can't help but laugh a little! It'll grow back!
