Thomas and Nicholas each bought a Lego Chima racer. They love them and play with them a lot. I watch them play with them. They seem so safe and fun. I have no idea how this happened. Even after hearing explanations from all of the witnesses, I still don't understand how this happened! It was seriously stuck. I couldn't pull it more than 1/8 of an inch off her scalp. I sat her down and gathered any tools I thought might help. After I had been working at it for a while, Thomas asked if he could take a picture. I told him he could and he started snapping away. I think he did a pretty good job!
I got some of the hair unraveled one strand at a time, but in the end I gave up and just cut the rest. Right now it isn't noticeable, but it might be for a while when it starts growing out. Oh well...it will fit in with the rest of her hair. I haven't mentioned it, but she cut her hair again a few months ago. I had done a small braid with the hair in and around her bang area and she chopped about half of the braid off. I decided not to fix it. I mention now and then that we can't do this or that to her hair because of the funny short pieces. I think she is realizing that she doesn't want to do that again....at least I hope so. I actually don't really care all that much if she does cut it again. I just want her to begin to see that her actions have consequences, and it is nice when the consequence doesn't have to be administered by me.
