It’s Sunday morning and I’m awakened by the following questions from my 4 yr old daughter:

Munchkin:
Mommy, what happened to your hair???!!!

Me:
What do you mean?

Munchkin:
It’s…  it’s…  it’s… SHORT!!!

Me:
It is?

Munchkin:
YEAH,  WHO DID THAT TO YOU!!!???

Me:
What do you mean short?

Munchkin:
Somebody cut off a lot of your hair while you were sleeping!

Me:
Well where is all my hair?

Munchkin:
I don’t know! We have to go find out!

Me:
Okay, come on, let’s go.

 

We go the bathroom mirror to investigate….

 

Me:
It IS short!

Munchkin:
See, I told you. Who did that to you?

Me:
I don’t know, maybe it was The Scissor Monster!

Munchkin:
Did he cut it off and eat it?

Me:
I don’t know. Why would he need to eat hair?

Munchkin:
Maybe because he doesn’t like vegetables!

Me:
Maybe, but won’t that make his belly hurt? Let’s look in the trash to see if he put it there. Aha!!! There’s my hair. He put it in the trash!

Munchkin:
So why did he cut your hair? Was it because he likes to be mean?

Me:
I don’t know. Let’s see… I kinda like it, it’s not that bad, don’t you like it short?

Munchkin:
No I don’t like it,  you look horrible! I like your hair long !!!!

Me:
Well let’s go see if we can find that naughty Scissor Monster. Maybe he’ll tell us why he cut my hair.

Munchkin:
But what if he tries to cut off my hair too?  I like my hair long. I don’t want my hair short.

Me:
Well I have a secret.

Munchkin:
What?

Me:
There really is no Scissor Monster. I cut my own hair last night while you were sleeping. The ends were pretty damaged because mommy wasn’t good at taking care of her hair all by herself. So I had to cut off the bad parts so my hair can look pretty again.

Munchkin:
But I don’t like it short.

Me:
It’s okay honey, my hair grows really fast, it will be long again before you know it.

Munchkin:
Promise?

Me:
I promise,  Munchkin, I promise…

  1. Ahhh, bless her! Reminds me of when I had to go out and leave my younger son with his father. When I came back, my son only had one eyebrow…his dad had given him some chewing gum so he tried to make a web on his face like Spiderman…shaving his eyebrow was the only way his dad could think of to get rid of it…

      1. Hahaha, I’ve been well. A few medical issues but humor helps! I’ve heard it’s good medicine. Great that we can share a laugh or smile. We all need that ray of sunshine!

        Have a blessed day. You have permission to be a kid today 😁
        Hugs🌷
