I knew it was coming. All kids do it.
This morning I was doing my son's hair trying to get ready to go to the park and out for ice cream today. I figured in this 90 degree weather, that would be the best thing to do.
They took their showers and got dressed. One by one each kid came into the bathroom so they could brush their teeth and I could get their hair styled. My oldest came in first. He brushed his teeth while I grabbed the gel and began to do his hair. When he was done brushing I grabbed the blow dryer and proceeded to finish styling.
Next came in my youngest. I brushed her teeth, curled her hair and she was off.
My middle son came in started to brush his teeth. I grabbed the gel and started to style. I didn't notice anything. Not right away. It wasn't until I grabbed the blow dryer that I noticed a big chunk of hair missing RIGHT IN THE FRONT. I blow dried his hair looking to see if maybe the gel was clumping or something.
No. It wasn't.
"Did you....." I grab his hair to inspect it.
His face gets this Oh shoot I'm caught look.
"Oh my goodness. YOU CUT YOUR HAIR!?" I ask.
"Um..." he says and follows it with a shrug of his shoulders.
"You cut your hair. SON! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID THAT!" By this time my blood is boiling.
I know exactly when it happened. This morning we were doing some arts and crafts. While he was cutting out some pictures I ran to start the dryer.
I remember when my niece and nephew both cut their own hair. My poor niece looked a hot mess and my nephew ended up getting his head shaved. My sister was beyond pissed and I remember laughing.
It's all fun and games until its your own kid.
I was planning on cutting their hair this weekend but it looks like I'll be doing it tonight instead.
My son cut his own hair, I can't believe it. It was bound to happen I guess. My mom just laughed and my husband laughed even harder when I called him at work to tell him about our son's latest move.
"You have to admit, it's pretty funny," my husband tells me.
My sister's response after I sent her a picture: "*laughing so hard she can hardly breathe*"
I suppose it is pretty funny when you think about it and look at him.
Has your kid ever cut his/her own hair? Do you remember what you were thinking when you saw it? What did your child say?
