Comb Over

I just gave Emrie a bath and after I washed her hair I was able to pick it out and assess the situation. I'm thinking our only option is the "comb over". Can a five year old seriously wear a comb over?

You worry to much!

Emrie's a beautiful girl with a beautiful head of curls (short or long :) ), and it's no secret that she'll be adorable with just about any hair style. I think Chad's concern stems out of the fact that Em has "severed ties" with the easiest stand-by option of the ponytail for at least a year or so. Fixing Em's hair was not a simple 2 minute task to begin with, and now the task has probably just gotten even more complicated and time-consuming.

I choose to style my hair this way.. Baldness is Beautiful

Cathy says I am a “chick – magnet”
And that she is such a lucky lady to have such a hansom man!

Sandi said...

yep, no more ponytails for awhile. Some liquid silk and/or no more tangles and a hair pick might be the way to go...Her hair will certainly be well conditioned. Regardless, she is still beautiful, and what a great memory for you to share with children!

What is it with kids and cutting hair? I could not have been more than 5 yrs. old when I cut the next door neighbors red headed boy. Wow, that was worse than if I had cut my own.....I had to go next door and apologize to his mean old mom, plus get a very hard spanking from my grandma. Didn't really try to analyze why I did it, like was I under undo stress because my dad was complicating my life or something... Could it be that anonymous doesn't realize that Emrie is a happy, deeply loved almost 5 yr. old who just wants to express her independence? Tell them to get off their negative high-horse and confess their name.

Kudos Brenda!

You know what... if it looks like a pig and sounds like a pig....its a pig...in other words, don't try to read more into a child's reason why they do something. Sometimes they do it just because there was sissors on the table and nothing more to do.

This is typical behavior for a little girl, we've all been there...we've all done it. You never know, maybe she thought she was making herself beautiful for her recital coming up.

The one thing I've seen in Emrie since I've known her and observed her just a little is that she is a very independant thinker. So...she displayed some of that personality trait...and I think that is about as far as I'm going to go on the psycho babble. hehehehe....oh and that was free too Chad...LOL

To Ms. Doerr,
Sorry I sounded negative,but I was
only offering suggestions since this is my line of work.
I don't care how much they are loved, they will act out their feelings and frustrations in different ways.

I completely understand how frusterating it is when your daughter has beautiful hair and decides to cut it!! I remember when my oldest daughter had long curly hair (she probably was around 5 when she chopped her hair!) it was beautiful until one horrible night she decided to give herself a mullet!!!! I am not exaggerating!!She chopped it!! You can ask grandma Love!! The moral of the story is all little girls cut there hair at some point in time and if your's hasn't well then you have been blessed! That's what little girls do, they play makeover's!! I have learned for myself to keep scissors out of reach of little hands! Emmerie is a beautiful, smart young lady her hair will grow back!!

A good father would cut his hair too :).

Ktaie Mae did the same thing six months ago. She had long beautiful hair and a week before we moved to Kentucky she decided to play hairdresser and cut off 4 inches not to mentention one part to her scalp. My suggestion is take her to a hair dresser and aks them what they would be able to do! I did this as I was in tears over Katie's hair. Remeber little girls just want to look pretty!
