What Happens When Rissa Sneaks the Scissors for 2 Seconds

Last Sunday Jose cut Ruben's hair. I usually do it but was in bed so he did. Every time I cut Roo's I go ahead and trim little Miss Priss's hair too, just the bangs the rest has never been cut.
Well, Daddy told her no so the next day I'm in bed but Deana is watching the kids. I hear Rissa talking to Deana and one minute later I hear Deana get up from her chair and say "Oh my God, what have you done." Deana just kept repeating 'Oh my God.'

So I knew it was bad, I dragged myself out of bed (it had been a bad day) and went into the kitchen. I see this pile of hair on the floor. It took my brain a minute to realize what she had actually done. Then I just did not want to look at her. I didn't get a picture of the hair in the floor because Deana quickly swept it up, I guess getting rid of the evidence for Miss Priss. But it was a lot of hair, I just knew she had cut all her hair off.

I finally went and found her and saw that she had scalped the front. I'm just thankful that she didn't cut skin or her eyes as as close as she got.
After the shock wore off, Jose and I went in our room and threw ourselves on the bed and laughed until we cried. I told Jose next time the child asks for a hair cut he needs to give her one.

Oh and the next day Marissa and I were in the bathroom and she was looking in the mirror. I said look what you did to your hair, her response was, "But mom look at my pretty lips." I had to say yes baby you have pretty lips and gorgeous hair. :)

ooh isn't miss Priss just proud of herself too?!!! It isn't as bad as it could have been I guess. ;) Let me know when you are up for a visit and I'll bring the boys by. I have a bunch of Pooh and Tigger stuff for Rissa's room, and I still have Roo's present. I guess it is good you had an episode in the dr. office so they can see exactly what is going on. I hope they figure out soon so you can get back to your normal life. I can't imagine how hard it has been for you. Know that you are in my prayers and I love ya! Marla
