Today was class pictures.
Yesterday, I gave the kids their very own scissors for craft projects. I had consulted various experts and teachers, and concluded they were ready.
Well, the headline of this post says it all.
My daughter decided she wanted to look like Coco Chanel. Yes, she knows who she is. She’s obsessed with fashion books.
The amazing thing is her haircut looks GREAT! It’s insane, but she created the classic tapered bob HERSELF, with the hair shorter in the back and longer in the front. The bangs could have been more even, but her instincts are pretty (this word is overused but appropriate here?) fierce.
I’m torn between being proud of her individual style and annoyed that she cut her hair without my permission.
But I’m mostly proud.

Did you ever cut your hair when you were little? When you were little, did you have a strong idea of how you wanted to look?
