I have been told by many people that I was way too calm for the situation. My 4 year old daughter decided to "make my sisters beautiful" while they slept. Aka cut the crap out of their hair. I did have a moment of panic when I walked in the living room to see a pile of hair laying by my sweet children's heads. But what good is getting all upset going to do? She just turned 4! Throwing a fit and freaking out isn't going to make the hair grow back! And the way the other girls handled it was perfect. They didn't want to kill their baby sister either. So I guess they are learning how to stay calm in crazy situations. I felt like a good mom witnessing their reactions. What's done is done. Teaching moment!
