not to pull your daughter's hair hard when you have to spend over an hour trying to get a comb out of her hair? It was stuck 3/4 of an inch away from her scalp and was wrapped around tight several times. She has her birthday party tomorrow so I didn't want to cut it out. Well, a part of me wanted to cut it out and not get her hair fixed by the party... but I worked it out anyway. She'll still need a cut soon because of the amount of breakage. I was hoping to wait on that until after our trip to California. Argh! Her carelessness and cluelessness is killing me!!! She can't seem to focus on anything since Christmas, this is the second time in a week she did this. The good news is that she actually sat there and listened to me as told exactly what I thought of her latest escapade. She's the only eight year old I know that can't comb her hair.
