Haircut Fiasco

Monday night an old friend and I were catching up, and I got home too late to see my son before he was in bed. It turned out to be a good thing. When I saw him the next day, he was not the cute baby boy I had left the morning before on my way to work. Gone were his curls. Gone was his wacky hair. My wife had attempted to cut his hair. He was still cute of course, but something drastic had changed.

I don't know what she was thinking. I don't know that she knows what she was thinking. She used the clippers with no guard on the bottom half of his head, effectively making him bald. This wouldn't have been so bad if she had kept a straight line, but she didn't. This was a haircut that almost necessitated a complete buzz.

Last night I spent an hour or so doing my best to clean it up. It is very hard to cut a two year old's hair. I am inclined to give my wife some credit, considering how much he squirms. She still did a pretty bad job though, so that credit doesn't get her very far. :)

Now my baby boy looks like a kid instead of a baby. My mom is probably going to be in shock when she sees him. She likes the curls. I like the curls too, but it looks pretty good as it is now. Needless to say my wife will not be cutting my son's hair again anytime in the near future.
