My Husband Cut My Baby's Hair!

Notes from a New Mom: This is seriously an amazing story -- amazingly ridiculous,that is. I came home from work the other day, and my husband had just finished chopping off our 1-year-old's golden hair.To make things worse, she is a girl! I could sort of understand possibly trimming a boy's hair, but a girl's?! No.

"She had, like, a mullet!" he said, when I began screaming about why the hell he would just take a pair of scissors and cut off her beautiful hair. "She needed a trim!"

"SHE IS 1!" I yelled. "Her hair was gorgeous and just hadn't grown out all even yet!"

There are stories, of course, about toddlers and kids cutting off their own hair, so I guess my husband was acting like a toddler.I know it's just hair, but my daughter now looks ridiculous. (My husband, by the way, is a real estate agent; he has no business cutting any kind of hair!)

I am so pissed I don't know what to do. For many months prior to this, my daughter had worn little caps because she was bald. Then her hair started growing in -- this beautiful, honey-colored, soft, whispery hair. And now it's gone. He didn't just TRIM, he CUT: He cut her bangs, he cut the back of her hair; he cut all of her hair off, not just the part that looked like a "mullet." (It didn't look anything like a mullet, by the way.)

I loved putting her hair in little pigtails or putting in a little clip to the side. Now I can't do that anymore. Seriously: Sometimes men are just ridiculous.

I’d be inclined to comply with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!

OMG seriously? I mean I know men have equal rights, but he needed to consult you before he did that. Good news, it’s hair. And for kids, it’s OK to be bald. In another year it’ll grow back. But tell him now you get to cut HIS hair. If he refuses, then tell him if he EVER does that again, you’ll shave his head in his sleep.
