Footnotes

Let me clarify a few things since I've had a few questions. Mati Claire has a cow-lick in the front, a widow's peak, and TWO crowns in the back. I didn't know what a crown was until she was born: it's the center almost bald spot where the "swirl" begins and its the direction that the hair grows. MC has 2 of them. Several barbers have said they have never even seen a person with 2 crowns. So her hair grows in several different directions--primarily forward. The widow's peak "center" part has always been longer than the rest of her "bangs" since the day she was born. You may not be able to see the difference in the pictures I posted, but you can tell from the pictures taken today that there is a straight line across her forehead.

As we all know, Mati Claire's hair stuck straight up off her head until just recently. The LONGER it gets the more it WEIGHS it down. So when someone CUTS my child's hair, it has the possibility of sticking back up. After months of letting it grow out.

And anyone who actually had bangs (maybe in the 80's?) knows that letting them grow out is difficult. I'm back to square 1. There are pieces that fall out of her barrette that didn't yesterday. And I could almost get it behind her ear yesterday. I know it will grow back and its just hair. But when you have MC's hair, its not JUST HAIR.

Whoever the Director answers to (a State Board for Daycare's???) called to get my story and he said he will investigate. Don't know if that will actually happen. I have my suspicions. When I said "how could another child do this".......I meant that a child could NOT have done this. We asked them repeatedly if gum or play-dough was a factor, and they assured us it wasn't. According to the director, she is "baffled by this incident" and has full trust in her employees. We told her that one of her trusted employees is LYING! And I will let everyone who walks in Kroger Pharmacy know it.

I felt like I needed to clarify a few things and just let everyone know how extremely mad...livid...outraged...hurt...I am. Sorry to take it out on everyone!
