But, no. The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 had decided to give herself a fringe. It's interesting that at some time around three or four years of age that so many girls decide to play hairdresser.
However, I feel partly responsible, although I know I shouldn't. Whenever The Most Adorable Granddaughters visit my house they always seem to find themselves in my room in front of the mirror with all my hair toys (excluding #5 but I'm sure that will come). Often they'll have a comb or brush in one hand and a handful of clips in the other. Even before they're using a lot of language, they are able to make it clear that they want their hair done.
Which leads me to the reason I feel responsible. Not just because I obviously have all these hair pretties that attract little girls, but because whenever The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 wants me to do her hair she always asks that I leave her fringe (longer pieces that are at least chin length) out so that she can have a fringe like me.
Now she has a fringe like me. And she's tired of it already! I do think she looks great with it and just hope she realises that if she doesn't like it, not to reach for the scissors again.
Had DIL#1 not told me that The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 had cut her hair herself, I would never have guessed. Unlike when her sister took to the scissors, she didn't cut too much and she actually didn't do a bad job.
And at least she didn't do it just before an important event - unlike her sister! The Most Adorable Granddaughter#1's hair has grown out now but it took a looooooooooooong time.
In fact, I think The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 did such a great job that I'm wondering if I should get her to cut my hair. Could she really do any worse than the stylist who cut my fringe just days before my son's wedding?
