At least she didn't have to have it all shaved off...

Yesterday, while I was taking a shower, Claire decided she had her own project to work on. And of course this wasn't a day where we were going to stay home...we were trying to get out the door to meet some friends for the 11:30 showing of 'Curious George'. Anyway, somehow she managed to get the right side of her hair full of that blue sticky-tack stuff (that is used to hang posters and stuff on walls-it's like Silly Putty, kind of) and a Band-Aid. ?!?!? I don't know what look she was going for, but it looked like blue dreads. Of course, while I was trying to take it out, she was screaming bloody murder. So, I told her she was just going to have to go to the movie like that, then I would have to take her somewhere to see what they could do about it, and they would probably have to cut her hair. I don't think she really understood the consequences of that, because, she was just happy she was going to get a sucker! Ugh! (I did manage to get the Band-Aid out, though.)

So, after the movie we head over to the hair cut place...she tried to pick it out like it would work better for her than it did for me...then she asked if it was water soluble. I have no idea. So she tried to wash it out with shampoo-that didn't work either. But...then she decided to try some detangler. She worked some in and picked a little out...worked some more in and picked a little more out...and just kept on working. She actually started getting some pretty big chunks just sliding off of her hair! And Claire was having a ball, because she had never had her hair "...washed like this before, but my big sister did once!" She's just laying there all relaxed getting a nice cranial massage! That is SO NOT the consequence I was shooting for here people!

After the nice lady got all the blue stuff out of Claire's hair, she thouroughly washed and conditioned it, then blow-dryed it, and only charged me $4.00! I gave her $10.00, and still felt like I should have given her $20 for her patience. Then Claire got her sucker and we were outta there. Happy Valentine's Day.

BTW...'Curious George' was really cute! Especially for the 2-4 crowd. Kids a little older than that may enjoy it too, but, I think by the time they hit 7 or 8 it might be kinda boring. *Just a crazy mom's opinion.*

Never a dull moment...Allison has an appointment this morning, and Ethan has one this afternoon so, another busy day. I'm afraid I'll jinx myself if I say anything, but, Thursday and Friday look like stay at home days, so hopefully I can get some work done on these swaps!

When I first started to read I thought you were going tell us she cut her hair herself to remove the blue stuff. Glad she waited for her mommy to help. I hope you took pictures! Teenagehood is right around the corner and these pics. work great as bribes.

Oh my!
What an adventure. My sister cut her own hair when she was about 3. She ended up getting a really short bob, and I liked it so much I begged my Mom to let me get one, too!
Ah, kids are fun, eh?
Thanks for the info. on Curious George; maybe we'll take the boys.

OMG I am LOL so hard!! Thank god the hairdresser was able to get it out, but the mental image of blue dreads made my night. ;)

My MIL took my DD to see Curious George -- this kid can't sit still through a Baby Einstein movie and she watched the whole thing and loved it! Two thumbs up. :)

OMG! ROTFLMAO!! That's great! I think everyone has a horror story involving hair. When I was about 3, I got into a jar of Vaseline that was in my mom's nightstand (and in looking back...I really DON'T want to know why she stored it there...)...and I took fist fulls of it to my hair! Mom said it took FOREVER to get it out. I don't really remember it...except for screaming while my head was in the kitchen sink.

*HIGH 5 E~CLAIRE!!*

AND...I took Eli to see "Curious George" last Saturday. HE LOVED IT!!! And I did, too! Will Ferrell is one of my favs, anyhow...so that just added to the humor of it all for me! Eli didn't budge the entire time...except to dip his hand into the popcorn. LOVED IT!

Toodles...

I too thought she was going to get her hair at least cut. That must have been a super nice lady to save those pretty locks.
~When I was in High School my friends neice had to have her head shaved!!! She was about 4 years old and her brother cut chunks out of her head, ALL the Way to the scalp. Can you imagine her moms eyes when she first saw that...LOL There was no fixing it, they had to shaver her.
Any how, everyone that would come over always asked my friends why that little boy was wearing a dress..LOL

just me for now said...

egads! good job on getting it out...i've heard peanut butter or even vegetable oil will do the trick. if you ever need to know that in the future =)
i got my dad's thick eyebrows and when i was 4, my mom's friend and her 2 boys were visiting and they (the boys) were putting gum across their eyebrows, like a unibrow, so i did too. of course. it so sucked to have my mom tweeze the gun out. it hurt. and the boys, no gum stuck in theirs.
