Today’s to-do list included a duty I really don’t look forward to.
In fact, I avoid it like the plague. For as long as I possibly can.
But, eventually, the facts are too hard to ignore.
My kids needed a haircut.
And, by process of elimination, I’m the only man for the job.
But I didn’t start my 2.5-hour tour without some tools of the trade.
The absolutely, positively, necessary iced coffee.
And the $19.99 clipper set I bought at TJ M@xx a few years ago… and swore I’d get my money’s worth out of it.
Which took me approximated one really bad haircut to accomplish.
Next up was Isabelle.
This girl loves to get her hair cut.
She always asks for “short”. And holds her flattened hand up by the top of her ear.
Momma don’t do that short.
Then Miss Sophie Lu threw me a curve ball.
And asked for short as well. She held her flattened hand right by her chin. And reaffirmed several times that she wanted it as short as Isabelle’s.
Feeling like a wild child, Sophie was pretty pumped to see all that hair falling to the ground.
Not gonna lie. I’m going to have a hard time telling these two apart from behind now.
Miss Vivienne would not be left out.
She jumped up on the stool when it was her turn.
And smiled her little heart out. God love this child.
And yes, I did fix her bangs later.
Jude was next.
He’d been outside playing all afternoon. And I have no idea what was going on with his hair, although I suspect it was dried Kool-@id.
But we fixed all that.
At least, as best I could.
Because I am lots of things, but most definitely not a hair dresser.
Thankfully, my kids don’t seem too concerned about my lack of credentials.
Chocolate chips can go a long, long way.
