From the Mommy Files…

OMG! Bebs is Wendy!

Posted on: August 12, 2011

And now, for a break in our regularly scheduled recovery from Boo’s surgery.

OMG! Bebs is Wendy!

I’m not talking about Wendy from Peter Pan.

If you grew up in the 80s and listened to Prince, you know his backup singers were two girls named Wendy & Lisa.

Wendy had this goofy hairdo that became the “it” ‘do of the year.

You know what I’m talking about.

Short on one side, long on another.

I think you know where this is going.

Now I don’t believe that Bebs has ever heard of Wendy or even seen a photo.

But yesterday, Bebs decided to take a brief hiatus from her art project and play hair salon.


Her self-imposed makeover has left her looking just like Wendy!

Bebs’ cut is on the opposite side of Wendy, but you get the idea.

Maybe she’s trying to revive an old fashion trend.

Who knows.

Her hair had really grown in and was flipping and just looking so adorable.

I didn’t realize at first that she had done the deed.

They worked at their projects as they always do, with safety scissors and glue sticks, among other things.

Later we went for a quick walk to the store – we had to get out of the house.

She put on her signature bonnet and got in the wagon with Boo.

I looked at her and something was off. I couldn’t quite figure it out.

We returned, and Bebs asked for her favorite snack: Papou’s Chips.

Well, Papou doesn’t make chips of course, but he gives her these little bags of sour cream and cheddar chips and she loves them.

Of course, we were out of them.

I offered her 4 kinds of chips and of course none could replace the coveted Papou’s Chips.

Her tantrum lasted almost a full hour.

During the tantrum I found a clump of hair on the floor.

It didn’t look cut.

I shuddered to think, in her rage, could she have pulled it out of her head?

I went to find her, and as I walked passed the table – there it was.

A pile of hair.

Yes, a pile of hair.

She gave herself a pretty good haircut.

It sure was a lot of hair.

If your child has ever cut their own hair, you know what came next.


Now what?

The uncut side

I’m going to have to take her to the salon tomorrow to try to do something with it, so she doesn’t look so lopsided and so it can grow back half way decent.

 I asked her why she cut her hair.

She said, “Because I wanted to.”

No more scissors for Bebs, at least not for a while.

She’s not liking that punishment.

I cut my own hair when I was about 5.

I cut it smack dab in the front of my head.

So there was no covering that up.

At least she did the side and not the front.

the cut side

Well, I guess she’s going to be Wendy for a while.

Time to go hide the scissors.

Now go put on your purple clothes.

Get out that lighter and flick that Bic.

All together now.

Let’s reminisce…

“Purple Rain, Purple Rain…”
