this is not good

Elsie's hair was getting way too long in the front and needed to be cut so badly. For so many months, the only hair that was growing was her bangs. Fortunately, the rest is starting to catch up, but we had to do something about the bangs. They were always in her eyes and looked messy. I was too nervous to use scissors that close to her face, so Aaron volunteered. This is what happened:He went way too short!!! I am freaking out. It looks funny because with the way her hair is growing in on the sides it totally looks like a bowl-cut. Poor Elsie! Even she is upset about it!!!

Aaron still won't admit that he cut it too short. Oh well, it will grow out. I guess I can't complain since I was too scared to do it myself. She's still a cutie!

(You know the more I look at it, it's not so bad. Maybe I was just too used to the long bangs, so this seems so different. Way to think positive, Kim!)

Leave men with scissors and no good will come. Just kidding, she looks adorable! I wish my kid had a too much hair problem... Oh and thanks for taking care of my family for me!

Aww, she looks cute! I have haircut trauma with my kids. Jack always screamed bloody murder. As a result, Bella had her first haircut last month at age 4 1/2. We cut off four inches and only I can tell...sigh....

I can't believe Aaron was brave enough! That's impressive.

I think Elsie still looks adorable. At the rate her hair grows, those bangs will be back in her eyes before you know it!

he should have just shaved half of her head. that's his style, right?

Oh and one more thing - in some parts of the world, it it tradition to shave a baby's head on their first birthday (girls, too!). Something about helping their "real" hair to grow in faster. My friends that live overseas really debated whether to observe this local custom with their daughter. In the end, they did it - much to the grandparents dismay!

She is adorable! It wouldn't matter what her hair looked like - she would look beautiful! Jeff tried to cut Brayden's hair once and ended up razoring the whole head because it looked so horrible!

I'm with lindsay- she looks totally cute. I kept looking for the "after" because i couldn't find one that didn't look good.
