A Bad Hair Day

The plan was to cut the boys' hair on Sunday night. Brian was running late so I went ahead and did Calvin's hair. I took the guard off to trim around his ears and neck. Brian then came home with Coleman and Emmie so I rushed everyone to get bathed so they could get to bed and I went to do Coleman's hair quickly - so quick that I forgot to put the #2 guard back on the clippers, meaning there was no guard, meaning that it cut right down to the scalp! I noticed this after the first strip and about had a heart attack. Coleman asked what was wrong. I told him nothing but that I would came back with Dad and let him finish it! (By now, Brian is good at fixin' my mess ups!) He just did a #1 guard all over and it's not too bad. Coleman's hair grows fast so it should be good by the end of the week!

Here is the 'before' picture of Coleman's hair. (Please excuse the silly putty on his face - I don't know why it's there but this is the best of the recent picutres).
Here's the 'after' shot. Can you see the line on the right?

See it a bit better?
Oh my!
Poor guy!

Anyone need a haircut? I don't charge much!!

I think we've all had hair mess ups. Hair grows so fast on these kids.

Enjoy the summer while it lasts.

We shave our boys' heads in the summer. Hubs does it. I can't watch.

Jenn, don't feel too bad. My mom actually stayed home from church with my brother one Sunday because my dad had done such a poor job on his hair cut the night before. That must have been fun to explain from the pulpit! Miss ya, L
