Me Against the Clippers

So I started by giving HM a haircut. a real cute one I might add. It was a little skater do. Short on the sides and back, long on top. after cutting his hair it occurred to me how much cute and more professional it would look if I hit the underside with clippers.....

My first mistake, buying a cheap pair. I'm buzzing his hair with the longest attachment and its longer in some spots and shorter in others. I incorrectly assume its because I had cut it too short in some spots with the scissors.

My second mistake, on I go to the next shorter size attachment. Needless to say its still uneven. I'm still not getting it, and I continue on. Then the inevitable......HE MOVES!!!

Why at this point do I not stop and take him to the barber for an emergency repair? I don't know. I think I was caught up in the moment. It was me against the clippers and I was determined to win, at any cost, even at the cost of my son's hair apparently!

I kept buzzing, it kept cutting, shorter and shorter, smallest attachment, no attachment, then....NO HAIR!!!

So in this battle of wits against a machine, I guess I must admit defeat. I keep trying to justify it to myself-telling myself I'm not the first mom to do this. It's nice for summer.(Even tho I do live in cool Seattle) His hair grows fast, etc., etc., etc. WHATEVER!!!!

The truth is he looks like some neo Nazi skin head, cancer vic, army recruit. Oh well, he loves it. that's what counts. Have any of you moms done this to your kids? Please don't let me have the only haircut from hell story!

  1. Oh my goodness...all that hair gone! But you know what...he still looks adorable...not just saying that!

    Last year my husband cut Sarah's hair while she was sleeping. Totally lopsided. Thank goodness it grows back!
