Cutting their own hair?

Did you all see this picture of Suri Cruise?  It appears as if she recently chopped off her bangs by herself (eek!).  The first thing I thought when I saw it was "thank goodness my kids have never done that (knock on wood!)".  Then again, I have all boys so maybe it is a girl thing? I don't know! Have any of your kiddos given themselves a hair cut?

I would also agree that trimming hair is mostly restricted to girls only. They like to trim their hair and do everything that they would be interested in later on in life.

My middle one actually accused the younger one of cutting her hair one time. She walked around the corner with a bunch cut off and I asked her what happened, knowing full well what happened, and I get "Madison cut my hair!!" Umm, funny, your sister was in the bedroom singing the entire time that you were in the living room... I do think it is more of a girl thing, I don't remember my brothers ever cutting their hair.

Eek!  But how funny that she tried to pin it on her sister.  It cracks me up how they come up with some of their stories without fully thinking them through.  LOL!

I have long hair and when I get bored I play with it and I can so see how to a 4 year old with scissors its maybe tempting. Second time my neice said it was in her eyes, good excuse bad execution :)

Ack!  Your poor nana's blinds! LOL!

I'm wondering if the hair cutting issue really is something that girls do more often than boys.  Longer hair would be more tempting I'm sure!

My niece did twice! My boys (knock on wood) never have which could be a boy thing, also we keep their hair pretty short (think it might be more tempting when its longer) ... oh and I never allowed them to have siccors at home every since my oldest decided to give nana's blinds a trim...
