Another talent I DON"T possess....

Haircutting!

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.

I think he looks SO cute! I am a fan of the buzzed look. Probably because it's the only haircut I can do. I have butchered the hair of all 3 of the males in my house. Take a close look at Luke the next time you see him. Not pretty!

Oh, I think he looks cute with it buzzed but I understand where your coming from. I debate cutting my boys hair everytime. Dont worry, it grows back fast!!

too funny! Luckily he's a cutie no matter what hair-do he has. :)

HA HA! That just makes me laugh. I can just see you, la la la snip snip snip and then, OH....

And he looks way cute. Jameson's hair is so thick it's like carpet - seriously go try and style or comb your carpet - you can't do it. So he gets the buzzed look.

He still looks cute! Just think...it will be nice and cool for summer, if it ever gets here.

I really LOVE the buzzed hair look....especially for summer. It's soooo easy. My boys love it. You're right though...Eli does look a lot older!! :o( He's such a cute kid...so he could wear his hair anyway you cut it. I was laughing so hard at the first pictures. I've done that before.... I don't cut my boys hair anymore, we'll just leave it at that. :o) Let's get together again soon... I miss you!!

I like it too! And it's a perfect summer-time haircut!

Mangone said...

I don't see anything wrong with it. I myself and a lot of guys I know sport the buzz cut. Just one question.....when does he enter boot camp? Ha Ha

a-anderson said...

How funny. At least he is a boy and you had the option to buzz it all off.

I like to do the "steps" (you know from the 80's?) in Wills buzz.

I think its cute. Will won't let me cut his hair and its driving me nuts! Funny how they have thier own little ways they like to look.

What a little stud.
