Well...I was wrong. Today, the girls decided to play a game of "chop! chop!"...which basically entailed taking my kitchen sheers, hiding in their tent that we had made earlier this morning, and chopping almost ALL of Reilly's hair off. Needless to say, I wasn't as excited as the girls were at the outcome of their "game"...it meant we had to go off to the salon to have Roo's hair evened out (I am terrified of taking scissors to anyone's hair...based on previous traumatic experiences). An hour and twenty-five bucks later, Roo's hair cut was complete...short, sweet, and done. She's not quite sure if she likes it or not...it's bugging her that she can't tuck her hair behind her ears anymore.
But, that's enough of my rambling...here are all the before/after/then/now shots of the girls and their stylish new hair cuts. What do you think?
Aiden (L) and Reilly (R) pre-haircuts
Aiden (L) and Reilly (R) post-haircuts (obviously - they didn't want to cooperate with the camera)
Reilly after her game of "Chop! Chop!" I will admit that Aiden did a pretty good job of snipping Roo's locks...much better than I probably could have done on my own. With the exception of one little super short patch in the back of Reilly's head, most of the hair was cut pretty evenly...especially for a 4 year-old.
And....Roo's new do once the hair stylist was done
What can I say? Never a dull moment with these two...never.
