I know that you never start buzzing someones head at the front. I KNOW that! Did I follow what I knew.....absolutely not! As previously mentioned, Colby was desperately in need of a haircut. With his cowlicks, his hair sticks up at funny directions and looks REALLY bad when not kept nice and short. SO...I decided to take a stab at it and see if I could make his hair look any better. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE!!!
This is ridiculous I know, but I do not own hair clippers (which will not be the case the next time I hit a Costco :) ). My mom, of course, has always cut everyones hair. This has become increasing difficult due to the amount of time that we see them. Also, I'm trying to be an independent person...not counting on Mommy all the time. Anyway, so I don't have clippers, BUT, Kaye does have a beard trimmer to trim his sideburns. Having used these before to trim up the back of Colby's head I didn't think this would be an issue. This was not the case.
I put it on the highest setting but it didn't want to snip anything. I tried the back first and then the front. Nothing. I then proceeded to put it to the lowest setting and tried it again...just at the front. Not a good idea. It worked...a little too well :) Hee Hee! Poor kid. After that, he decided that he didn't want his hair cut anymore. Actually, he didn't even want to get his hair cut in the first place!
He was super upset with me. He told me that he didn't want to look like Grandpa, which made me laugh even more than I was already. I called my mom and told her the story...and now, she's going to save me. She told me to put down the scissors and the clippers and STOP massacring my sweet child's hair. She's going to be super Grandma and come fix it in a couple of days or so. Okay, so I'm not all that independent!
He's just going to have to wear a hat for a couple of days. I think I need a haircutting lesson. :)
Oh, he actually was upset....The pictures are misleading. He is just such a ham.
*UPDATE* The funniest thing is that Marcus just came home from school and was so excited about Colby's hair that he begged me to do the same to him!! What the heck?!?

Either way, I hope this phase ends and ends fast. I'm running out of Little Swimmers and patience for scrubbing down the tub, all the toys, and kids every time Elijah gets his little bum in a pool of warm water.

As I was pushing my cart over the bread section, a grouchy old shelf stocker came up to me and proceeded to give me crap about my children.
"Can't you keep your kid quiet? There are elderly people shopping! He is so irritating!!"
I was STUNNED! Who talks to a mom, obviously trying to get her kid to be quiet, like that? As if I was enjoying it!?! I tried my best to be polite and explain that he was really tired, hungry, you know, a kid....she just looked at me with disgust and told me she was a mother too. What did that mean??
Either way, I cried the entire time I shopped, and came out with about $50 worth of stuff I didn't need and about $100 worth of stuff I'd forgotten.
Really, what is a girl supposed to do? Her family needs to eat -we were hungry...really hungry at my house - so a girl needs to shop!
I'm curious why people feel the need to make things worse instead of helping to make them better!
Ahhh! I got it out of my system. I feel much better! :)
