Peek Into My Life

I thought I would change things up a bit and let you in on a bit of my of my "real" life.  Might be something I start throwing in for fun. Fashion posts and product reviews are fine and dandy, but this is where my heart truly is....my crazy KIDS!!!  So, I thought I would let you peek into my world and see what exciting stuff happens in my household. I think it's pretty comical and more entertaining than any post I could ever plan for.  So, sit back, laugh and enjoy a little piece of my life.

My youngest, the red-head, who we call Sparkle Monkey, decided to play "hair salon".  I have told both of my girls, numerous times to NOT play with Mommy's roll brush. I know what can happen when not used properly.  So, the well-behaved children that I have, completely listened to me and DID NOT play with my roll brush, but instead got their hands on the comb.   And this is the repercussion of playing with the comb, not the roll brush...

If you follow me on Instagram (@becauseshannasaidso), on Twitter or are a friend on my personal Facebook, you already have seen one of the pictures.  I told you to stay tuned...so here it is...

I have no idea how she managed this...
Way worse than it looks...wrapped over and over!
Getting the tools out....Thanks, Dad!
Comb has been cut, now for the un-tangling...
Ross has more patience than me...I was freaking out! He wins the Dad Award!
The last bit...almost there!
The surgical tools....yes, it took all of these to get it out.
Success!! Memory pieces...I think I am going to have them framed.





Whew!!  Glad that's over!  I seriously thought we were going to have to cut those red locks!  She was so embarrassed.  In fact, as I was preparing this post, she saw her pictures on the computer and said these exact words, "Momma, I told you not to download these!!" Yeah, right!!  I couldn't resist!

MAKE SURE TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY! 

Cheers to my crazy kids, not using roll brushes or black combs!!

That is too funny. Don't you just love real life? My son is obsessed with toothbrushes. He sneaks into our bathroom so he can take our toothbrushes and brush his teeth...

I give your husband a lot of credit. I probably would have cut her hair...into a cute little bob though (haha). My mom had to cut quite a bit of my hair out as a kid because I decided to have a fun tac fight with my friend. Do you remember that green stuff that held posters to the wall? It also sticks in your hair. My little sister also once gave herself "highlights" with magenta nail polish. We were wonderful children.

Oh no! I think this is why my mom always had me wait until we ate corn on the cob to play "hairdresser" by rolling my hair up in the cobs (like curlers).
Sure, it was very hillbilly-esqe, but all I needed after was a bath.
I bet she'll be mildly terrified of your brushes from now on!

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

Haha oh my word! She really got that como stuck good... thank god hubby came to the rescue and you didn't have to chop that pretty hair off. Wheww! If nothing else, hopefully she learned her lesson :)

Erin @ Currently Coveting said...

OMG Shanna! That is so funny/ so glad you got that out. I got gum stuck in my hair as a child and it took so long for my hair to grow back after they had to cut it out!

Oh my goodness! I'm amazing y'all got the comb out without cutting her hair. Awesome job!!

Once my little sister decided on an updo and just cut all the hair that didn't fit into it. Yes. It was bad.

Lindsay said...

Haha, this is too funny! Thank goodness for husbands, I wouldn't know what to do!

TOO FUNNY! And I can totally relate..not with my kids (cause I don't have any) BUT with myself. I used to get my waist-long hair caught in all kinds of combs and brushes when I was younger, haha!
