The resourceful preschooler

I guess the shiny, silver scissors were too much to resist.  It didn't take long for Lilly to whack off a chunk of her hair, much to the distress of everyone around her.  Chuck cried.  "Can you make her hair big again?" he asked.  I'm afraid that's beyond my abilities  :)

No matter how hard we try to keep certain things out of reach, preschoolers seem to be able to find a way to get whatever attracts their attention.  I remember when my four year old son came out of the bathroom with blood running down his leg.  It seems that he wanted to shave his legs  :)  I honestly had no idea that he would play around with a razor.  Luckily, he didn't cut himself badly but it was an eyeopener to me that nothing is sacred in the house.   And one of my daughters did what Lilly did, only to her bangs.  She was frustrated with them so she lopped them off to the hairline.  Now THAT was hard to fix!

We can do our best, be smart and vigilant but beyond that, we can only hope and pray that our children don't do anything harmful.  At least Lilly didn't accidently stab herself!
