Aside from withdrawing, Emma must have felt left out after her sister's trip to the hairdresser (see earlier post), so she gave herself a 1920's style self-cut (as opposed to Rachel's GI Jane look). I have to admit, though it needed seeing to, she didn't do a bad job. Needless to say, we've hidden all remaining sharp objects and are watching their older brother like a hawk, in case he decides to tinker with his do.
Last night's storm kept everyone awake, so we're all walking around like extras on a George A. Romero movie, but all in all, things have calmed down.
Normal service has been resumed.
