It's just unnatural and unnecessary for a just-turned 3-year old to have this much hair.
It makes her life hell, it makes our life hell. Nobody wins.
The problem is that my mother-in-law is going to force Dirt to divorce me for this, and as I've mentioned before, I really kinda like him. You may not know this about my MIL, but she has always dreamt of having granddaughters who could use their own hair as trains for their wedding dresses some day. And with each snip of the scissor, that dream is stolen from her.
...and I'm the thief (even though this was all Dirt's idea).
