Do you all remember me? I thought I would be gone for a couple of weeks, but it ended up being a couple of months. I have been in Kansas City watching Noah and Izabella, two of our grandchildren. Their father is from Mexico. He and our daughter flew down there the first part of Feb. Ten days later, Hazel returned to KC, but Ivan went on to Mexico City to visit his family. Hazel had to go back to work and needed someone to take care of the kids for her. So of course, grandma stepped in. (grin) I got so close to those two little darlings. Noah is 4 and Izzie will be 2 in May. I will admit that at first it was rather hard. After all, I haven't had children that young for at least 18 years, but I soon got used to it.
We had a few bumps along the way, but everyone survived. LOL Not long after I got there, I decided to cut some bangs for Izzie. Her hair is very fine and I couldn't keep a barrette in it. It was always hanging down in her eyes. I made the mistake of cutting them in front of Noah. A few days later I was sitting at the computer when I noticed how quiet it was. Hmm, not good! LOL Noah had pushed a toy up to the kitchen counter and got the scissors down. Yep! He cut the whole right side of Izzie's hair off. I just stood there gasping when I saw her. Noah took off and hid under his sleeping bag. LOL I found him and explained that only adults could cut hair. He must have understood, because he never did it again. His mama wasn't too happy when she saw it, but it will grow back. So Hazel tried to straighten the mess up. Now it looks like a boy's haircut, but it will grow back. Right?
