Yesterday, I decided Eli's hair was just getting too long. I had just bought some new clippers and scissors and decided I would try to cut it myself. I figured it couldn't be that hard.
Ryan asked if I wanted him to help me, and I guess I said, "What? You think I can't cut hair?" So I guess he took that as I am an expert hair cutter. So he let me just cut away. Well, I had no idea what I was doing, and you can see I really screwed things up.
I was just cutting away. Not really with any type of plan or really rhyme or reason. I then decided I better stop and evaluate.Things didn't look so good and I said, "ahh CRAP!" Ryan looks and goes "what did you do?" I said, "I think I cut it a little short." Ryan says, "I thought you said you knew how to cut hair." I said, "no. I have no idea."
Ryan tried to fix it with the new clippers I bought, but they were CRAP! So we decided to run to Wal-Mart and buy some clippers that actually worked. (Of course we made Eli put on a hat).
We came home and the only way Ryan could fix my mistake was to shave his hair. I was so sad. I am not a big fan of the buzzed head look. He just doesn't look as cute, and he looks more grown up.
This morning Eli looked in the mirror and said, "I see my new haircut." I said, "yeah. Do you like it?" And Eli says, "NOPE!" When I asked why he said, "I just don't." I wanted to say neither do I. But instead I had to smile and say, "it makes you look so cool bud."
Next time I better just let someone else do it.
