aya hates getting her bangs cut. since she’s constantly trying to blow them out of her eyes there’s only one thing left to do: cut them in her sleep. unfortunately aya prefers sleeping on her side. this makes bang cutting very difficult. especially in lowlight situations (wouldn’t want to wake her up!). so i cut her hair one night and in the morning took her to the mirror to show her her fabulous new haircut. needless to say she was not impressed. i tried an overenthusiastic ‘now you have mommy hair’ and that followed by tears and a very dramatic ‘no want mommy hair!!!’. i thought every 2 year old wanted to look like their mommy but apparently i was wrong. and these botched bangs have yet to be fixed. sorry aya.
