I realize the picture look a little gross, but this is just a little proof that we really do know what we're talking about. Elise is usually pretty good about remembering the rules and sticking to them. She obviously relaxed a little as she was playing with her gum in her hands for a second when it slipped out and was immediately tangled in her hair! We had to cut it out about 5 inches up. Her hair was so long that I couldn't even find the spot that I cut out afterwards. This was our first and hopefully the only "gum-in-hair" incident.
