I scooped Grace up and put her in the high chair. Then I gave her a cookie. I didn't really stop to strategize--another problem of mine--I just grabbed her bangs as evenly as I could and cut 'em. Of course, the minute I grabbed her hair and pulled it away from her forehead, she turned her head, which made the hair uneven. Yeah well, I cut it anyway.
And in that moment discovered another way that I am like my mother. She is famous in our family for always cutting our bangs herself when we were kids, and always making them crooked. Ma, this one's for you!
Look at her--she's like, "Really? You thought this would work out, did you?" Here's another look from a picture I took today:After I did it I told Jason, "Oh no! She looks like Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber!"It's okay, you can say it. She totally does. And for the next 2-4 weeks, we will learn to accept it.
