Mommy Fix It!

(The Culprit)

This morning Danyka was using scissors to cut some shapes out for her homework. I was busy finishing last minute details for the craft show. Whitney was coloring.

When Danyka was done with the scissors I told Whitney she could use them. She's used them quite a few times so I wasn't particularly worried. I continued to work and I heard the oh so common words, "uh oh".

I turned around and saw Whitney holding Dora's head that she had just cut out of her flannel pj's. It was funny and frustrating at the same time. There was about a quarter sized hole where Dora's head had previously been.

Fortunately, Mommy came to the rescue. I stitched Dora's head back on and there is no longer a hole. I have to admit I was proud of my workmanship, although it's very obvious where the hole was.

Needless to say, we had a discussion about only cutting paper in the future. This just felt like such a classic mom story. I'm sure all of you moms out there can relate.

You did a great job of fixing it! Whitney looks so cute and innocent here...hee hee! Hopefully your girls won't ever cut their own or each other's HAIR ever.

Oh My Goodness!! This is a crack up!! I haven't let Isabelle use scissors yet cause I know she would cut all of her hair off before telling me or something, you are lucky that Whitney even said "Uh Oh" before she cut all of the PJ's up...

BTW your booth was awesome at the craft show!! You should be proud!!
