    I had to do a double-take on #9. MY CHILDHOOD FLASHED BEFORE MY EYES!

    (although I was fairly lucky that Mom never used the scissors herself on my hair. But the curling equipment…alas!)

    Miss Skye looks a lot like Mr. Candy but seeing you as a kid I see that she resembles you as well (she has your smile). She’s a good mix of you both.

    P.S. The bangs are’t that bad. The bow totally distracts from it.

    Oh gosh, this reminded of that time when I was about 7 and my dad brushed my hair with a curling brush and it got tangled up. My mom wasn’t home and after unsuccessfully trying to untangle it for about half an hour he just cut around the brush with the scissors… My hair was hip-length and it looked horrible. I think my mom had a word or two with my dad when she came home LOL

    Thank goodness my mom never tried to cut my hair herself! It would’ve been way more traumatizing than all those perms she let me get ;0)

    Oh, man, I remember some pretty awful things my mom did with scissors! Like the time she tried to “layer” my hair. Eek!
