First Haircut--UNPLANNED!

So Jyllian got her first haircut today--she is 3 1/2 years old and although we have cut her bangs from time to time we have NEVER cut her actual hair. Well today was the day. Definatly not intentional but Jyllian had other plans :)
We were planning on heading to Casper today to do some shopping but no intentions of getting haircuts! I asked Jyllian to go into the bathroom to get her brush so we could fix her hair. She ran into the bathroom and was in there for a little while but I honestly didn't think anything of it. She came out about 5 minutes later and said "Do you like my hair? Is it pretty?" I said "oh yes very pretty." She says "Is it shorter?" I instantly I asked her what she did. She very proudly says "I cut it! See Mommy!" "OHHHH NOOOOOOO" were my exact words and I ran into the bathroom to see chunks of hair laying on the floor and in the trash can. All I could say was No no no! I looked at her hair and the entire right side was chopped. She had pieces that were about an inch long. Justin came out of the shower and he said he has never had so many emotions all at once--he was mad, but at the same time wanted to cry, but all he could do is laugh. I felt much the same. So needless to say we took her to the mall and got her haircut. She was scared about it, but we told her it would be fine. She was crying and pretty upset with herself. By the time we got to the mall in Casper she was okay with it all. They ended up taking about 2 inches off the length and then layered it to match the "layers" she already put into it herself. It turned out pretty cute, and we will probably cut it again this summer into a bob to even it all out. I do have to say she was pretty proud of herself and she even said "I just wanted my hair short like yours and grammies." Too funny. So here are a few pictures :) ENJOY!

Oh, no!! I am still waiting for Alexa to do that for the first time. Seems like every kid does it at least once in their life. You should post some pictures of her new hair now. Sounds really cute! You might have a little hair stylist on your hands! :)
