To Snip, or Not to Snip… That is the Question…

Apologies in advance for lulling you here (Mwahahaha) under the implication I am today blogging about vasectomies, hysterectomies, or any ‘ectomies’ for that matter… Because I’m not.

No. What I am discussing is FAR more important, MUCH more serious and CERTAINLY effects a much wider audience… (And no. It’s not my Vagina.) (This time.)

Yes… I’m here addressing the BIG STUFF and asking the question all parents ask… The ultimate parental toddler-hood dilemma… If and when I should cut the toddler’s hair… 
To snip, or not to snip…
The toddler’s unruly mane.
It eats all the hairslides, and devours whole mincepies,
But I’m scared that she’ll never look the same…
To chop, or not to chop…
The toddler’s golden ‘fro.
I’m struggling to find head-gear, which the fuzz won’t domineer,
But I couldn’t stand for those ringlets to go.
To trim, or not to trim…
The toddler’s unchallenged mop.
I can’t take it any taller, but I’d hate it to get smaller;
As soon as the scissors get near I’ll yell ‘STOP!’
To cut, or not to cut…
The toddler’s untameable tress.
She looks quite a scruff, with her top-heavy fluff,
But it’s just such a beautiful mess…
So to snip, or not to snip…
I think I’ll only trim the fringe.
But I’ll leave the rest alone, let it become over-grown,
And instead treat myself to a few Mummy-Gins.
