Because one cannot POSSIBLY expect to end such a bad day like today on a good note:
Hannah's hair caught fire when she was blowing out her birthday candles.
Yes, you read that right. She was leaning over her cake and a stray section of hair fell into a still-lit candle. Josh and I both immediately started smacking her in the face to put out the fire. Which did not help her less-than-peaceful state of mind at the moment.
She is fine, didn't lose too much hair, and did not get burned (thank goodness!) She summed it up best (through her tears) when she said, "I HATE days like today."
Amen, little sister, amen.
