The Loaded Question

One question you don't want your child to EVER ask you:
If I tell you something, will you be mad at me?
How is one to answer a question like this? I thought about it and said to myself:
Diane (I call myself Diane), you had better be VERY careful how you answer this inquiry (Diane uses big words).
I never did really answer the question. But I did find out what she did:

Me: What did you do?
P: I cut something's hair.
Me: Go get it and let me see.

She returned with an armload of stuff. There were barbie dolls, Strawberry Shortcake horses, a Dora doll, and a horse head on a stick that she jumps around the house on. I had every intention of telling her to just throw it all in the trash, and that I wouldn't replace any of it. Honestly, I did. What stopped me, you ask? I quickly calculated that she would be throwing away over $100 worth of stuff.

I said to myself:
Diane (I call myself Diane), you had better do SOMETHING to let her know it's not ok to play cosmetologist (more big words).
So, what did I do, you ask? I told her to throw her trusty scissors in the trash can and clean chaos cave (her room) so she can take a nap, since she was clearly showing signs of sleep deprivation.

After an 75 minutes or so of protesting, she finally fell asleep. For about 45 minutes.
**************************************************

Last Friday, I registered so Uncle LeRoy can find me a place to pick cotton on the other side of the pond. He has 90 days to do his thing and find me a place to pick cotton in NC. Since I'm using my fluff and stuff resume, I think they will find something for me within a month. I kinda hope so. I'd REALLY like to be settled by the end of summer, because P starts Kindergarten in the fall.

My other big decision is about school for P. Public, private, or charter?

Maybe I'll just send her to cosmetology school.

Did you take photos of the aftermath (after you put her down for her nap- you know, so as not to ENCOURAGE the behavior)? - It would make a fun scrapbook page :)
