Hack Job


So this is what happens the first time you try and cut your kid's hair yourself...it's almost all gone!!! I guess I should have discussed the game plan first with my mother-in-law when I announced I was going to try and cut Caden's hair by myself. Everything was going good and I started cutting the top of his hair with scissors when she asked how short I was going to cut the top and I replied "really short, like this" and showed what I *thought* was about an inch or so. She suggested I use the electric clippers that we had just used for the bottom of his hair with a longer guard on it. I decided that was a great idea and without testing the length on it, went to town. I felt like crying at first, but now that I've gotten used to it a little more, I can see that it looks really cute. I guess that's how you learn to cut hair, right??? (c: You can't tell from the picture, but that is a faux-hawk...not holes in his hair.

Oh I think it looks so cute! And, surprisingly, I think he looks a lot like Ryan in that picture. I don't know if it's the hair or the goofy face he's making...

I just started learning to cut Austin's hair. It's really scary! I think your haircutting job turned out just great. (He'd look cute even without hair, so I guess you don't have to worry.)

I think we all have those moments. I did kinda the same thing when i first cut Collins hair. I cut Jason's hair and thought that i could do Collins but i didn't even think about how wiggle he would be. :D

LOL! I have many hair cutting woes myself. I cut my husband's hair and once forgot to put a guard on at all! He ended up with a nice bald spot on the back of his head. Thank goodness for hats and forgiving husbands! My girls hair, well, that's another story. I'm impressed though. Good job.
