Yesterday, I posted a story about our granddaughter Avery, and I have one more "Avery adventure" I want to share today. If you'd like to read yesterday's post about planting morning glories, you can click on the link.
Avery is our soon-to-be-five-years-old granddaughter, and one day last week, just out of the blue, she decided to cut her hair. We can't imagine what possessed her to do it (and I guess we never will) ... but cut it, she did.
Here are some "BEFORE THE HAIRCUT" pictures of Avery which were taken Easter Sunday ...
We loved her hair, and it had finally gotten long enough for hair bows and ponytails and braids. But, with just a few snips of her little scissors, Avery created a brand new look for herself. She cut chunks out on both sides and in the back, and a section in the middle of her bangs about a quarter of an inch long!
Her mama cried when she saw it, and could only think about Avery's fifth birthday coming up in a couple of weeks and how her hair will look in all the pictures. It was bad, but it could have been a whole lot worse!
The next day, I took Avery to her mama's hair stylist to see if she could "fix it," and here are some pictures I captured with my cell phone before we went into the beauty shop. Can you believe those bangs!
Miss Wanda, the stylist, did, indeed, work wonders with her scissors, and transformed the disaster Avery created with her scissors into a cute hair style for the summer.
Avery's reply to her Mama when she asked her why she cut it was, "It will grow back, Mommy." Yes, it will "grow back" ... and I'm just thankful that she didn't cut it as short as her bangs all over her head.
