I had one must-do today - go get haircuts for 2/3 of my children.
And then I thought about getting everyone dressed, and possibly waiting, and entertaining the two year old in the barber shop while the older two got their haircuts. And well, I chickened out.
I've tried my hand at cutting Stephen's hair before, and I'm a bit traumatized by the experience.
But I'm older now, wiser, and he's older, too.
So after some internet research, I found this great tutorial How to Cut Boys' Hair Like a Pro. I read it twice and full steam ahead we found ourselves in the kitchen playing "hair cutting store."
I'm so pleased how it turned out! If I do say so myself. By no means is it perfect. But you know what? Even when the professionals do it, it's not perfect. His hair is so straight. I believe we'd have to put him under general anesthesia to get it "perfect."
I cut Laurie's hair, too. It was much easier and forgiving.
A penny saved is a penny earned, right?! Well, I made $22 this morning.
