"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

It's not my fault he wouldn't hold still...

A few days ago, I took advantage of some spare time and lined the boys up for haircuts.  This wasn't the first time I've cut their hair.  In fact, I have been the only stylist they have known (other than a few random trips to the barber).

Things were going fine, and one by one, the boys emerged from the kitchen looking more dapper than ever.

Logan was last to get a trim.  He's usually the one that needs to be forced or bribed when it comes to cutting his hair.  With a sucker in both hands, he climbed up onto the stool and happily kind of happily obliged.

Things were going fine until I came around to his bangs. 

Despite the fact that I have NEVER even come close to cutting him, he's terrified that I will, and cannot hold still.  As I attempted to cut neatly across his forehead, he quickly turned to his left, and this is what we ended up with-

This picture does not do his hair-mishap justice.  It really is much worse in person.

I've been doing my best to get him to wear hats when we go out (he hates hats), and I've also been using mad amounts of gel in an attempt to give him a comb over....because even that would look better.

So until it grows back, we're enjoying his new claim to fame.  Tell me there isn't a striking resemblance!

Our little man is famous.


  1. This is one of your best posts ever! You crushed it with the photos!! This one is right up there with your 'Great Khali' post. I'm laughing out loud with people staring. The Queen of Quality Blogs is back!!!!

  2. If you don't shave that poor kids hair before you get here, Uncle Dec is going to do it! A quick question, if he would have held perfectly still, and the cut would have been straight, wouldn't he have looked even more like Lloyd Christmas?

  3. Guilty. Who has done the same thing to her kids? This mom. You almost wish they'd have done it themselves, right? Then at least people would understand.

    (Pssst.... he's still cute. And hair grows fast. And barbers aren't THAT expensive, for future reference.) ;)
