A little snip here, a little snip there. ~ Best Shot Monday

I really like this pic of Em, even if it is a little “senior portrait” looking. Do you notice anything strange about the photo?


Yeah, me either – until we were at the Pier yesterday and her little wispy “bits of bangs,” (which I thought were just more crazy bangs) were kind of “dampened” to her forehead because of the mist from the ocean. And there was a definite jagged “slant” to them, almost as if…they had been cut.

J: Did she, or someone, cut her bangs?
M: No, I think she has some weird bang growth…hey…wait a minute. Emma! Did you cut your hair?
E: No, Mama.
M: Did somebody else cut your bangs.
E: Um, no.
M: Did you? We aren’t going to be mad, we just want to know.
E: Yes. I did when I was in the playroom.
M: Honey! Why did you cut your hair?
E: My bangs were in my way. They were in my eyes, so I cut them off.


It really is hard to argue with logic like that.

    A right of passage. πŸ˜‰ It might have even made her more adorable.

    She is too cute!

    Everyone has to go through a ‘hair cutting’ stage…just be glad that her damage was minimal!

    at least she just cut the bangs a little… it could have been much worse!!
    VERY cute picture!!

    Oh dear. But it could have been worse, right?? They look fine, albeit a little uneven. πŸ™‚ Very cute picture. I’ll get an e-mail off to you soon. Just catching up from the weekend right now!

    Oh dear! I cut my hair… BIG time, when I was a kid… She’s so cute

    LOL – I’m sorry – this just makes me laugh. HA HA. What a cutie pie.

    Good thing she just decided to chop the bangs and not all of the hair. What a pretty girl.

    I’m knocking on wood right now!! It certainly could have been worse. But, I have to agree it’s still a gorgeous shot of Em.

    Gorgeous photo… even with the little crooked bangs!

  10. 10 Sara November 12, 2007 at 11:15 am

    lol oh my how cute, and she’s beautiful

  11. 11 Maya November 12, 2007 at 11:39 am

    I did cut my bangs like that once when I was little! That’s too funny!

  12. 12 Dawnomite! November 12, 2007 at 11:52 am

    well, she looks precious. that’s what my daughter’s hair looks like after WE cut it on purpose!! πŸ˜‰ ha ha ha

    Every kid has to do it at some point right? And it’s definitely not as bad as it could have been. She is gorgeous…with a little bit of added girlish charm now! LOL!

  14. 14 NTE November 12, 2007 at 2:43 pm

    Ah, it’s such a universal thing, isn’t it? Plus, she makes a lot of sense… but this is a very pretty shot: I really like it!

  15. 15 michelle November 12, 2007 at 4:23 pm

    Thank heavens………………I was holding my air thinking that she was going to say that Connor did it! : )

  16. 16 Melissa D November 12, 2007 at 4:26 pm

    Agree, the shot is beautiful! πŸ™‚

  17. 17 Elisa November 12, 2007 at 8:50 pm

    Hey – we match! The stylist cut my bangs a wee bit too short and they are looking VERY little kid-ish at the moment!

    By the way – consider yourself very fortunate – I’ve heard some doozie stories of real hatchet jobs kids do on their hair and the hair of their siblings!!! : )

  18. 18 Mandy November 13, 2007 at 7:54 pm

    She still looks gorgeous, cut bangs and all! I think all kids try that at least once (or sometimes several times in our case!)

    12 year old BA did it too. Same logic. She is a blonde.
    This is a superb photo, bangs and all.
