the great hair cut

i've been meaning to trim chilly's hair. so you could see his eyes. i like it long. so does big d, but it really was getting too long.


so yesterday, i grabbed the scissors and talked him into letting me trim it a bit. during the conversation, he got to the point that he wanted it short. because his best friend has short spiky hair. so he decided that short hair was cool.
so we went from this:

to this:

doing this:

pretty funny huh?

and for the record, the braid that we cut off, was 7.5 inches long! that is some long hair!

the only down side, was when he woke up this morning, he really wanted his long hair back. he was pretty upset when i told him i couldn't glue it back. and that it was going to take a couple of months to grow out. he eventually was okay, he was just going to go to school and tell everyone he got a short haircut for halloween. lol!

It's nice that he can pull off both long and short hair. Nice job on the cut! Cool way to do it, too. If my kids ever GET hair, I might just try it. :)

You should ask Amber about the time that she cut Skyler's hair. He cried! It was awful! :0) Good job. It does grow back...

Wow! That's even shorter than mine when I get it a little spiky. I had a student who went from long to short and spiky once. I didn't even recognize him when he came to school the next morning. I'll bet his teacher took a double-take, too. Cute!
