Hair Today. Gone Tomorrow!

I've been contemplating trimming my little one's hair.  I love his head full of gorgeous, blond curls. Well, my five-year-old made that decision for me. After a long day of juggling the boys, auditions and rush hour traffic, I was exhausted.  I stepped away for a moment to take off my makeup.  When I left, the boys were contently snuggled on the bed watching TV.  For some reason, my older one was suddenly inspired to cut hair. He dug into the desk drawer and retrieved the scissors.  He chopped off the center chunk of his bangs. Then, like Edward Scissorhands, he went to town on his brother's hair. There were fistfuls of blond locks on the floor, and my little one was bald with a row of curls at the bottom. It looked like a toddler mullet. My little one had a big smile on his face. He was pleased with his new look.  My oldest one was hiding. When he finally reappeared, his lower lip was quivering, and he told me, "Mommy, don't be mad.  I left his curls."  I rushed them to the salon where they recreated my oldest son's hairstyle into a spiky do.  For my little one, the stylist just smiled and said, "It will grow back."
This photo is the night before when my little one got into a bag of marshmallows.


The moral of the story is never trust a five-year-old.  We've had many discussions about scissor safety, but you never know when inspiration might strike!  


  1. Hot Diggity! Well, I guess it could be worse. AND, that face is so sweet and angelic, who's gonna notice anyway!
    p.s. found ya on SITS

  2. Oh, that breaks my heart.

    Sad. BUt it is only hair. That's what I'd tell myself.


    Here through SITS. Nice to meet you.

  3. It looks like he can carry off a mullet. Stopping from SITS!

  4. Look at those eyes!!!! But I too would be crushed, although I did the same thing while attempting a bang trim on my almost 2 yo....

    I'm part of SITS too!

  5. hahahaha! This is too funny! These pictures are priceless! What did you say to your oldest?!

    When I was younger, I cut my sister's hair. I hope to goodness my daughter does not get the idea to become a hair stylist, but the way her love for scissors is developing, that may already be written.

    Found you through Sits!

  6. My boys make that same "What did I do?" face, lol...too funny!

    Also, I wanted to let you know that I chose you for a Sunshine Blog award. Stop by & pick it up anytime:)

  7. I loved my oldest's curls so much I gave him a baby mullet! In my defense, it was the 90's!

    I'm stopping by to welcome you to SITS!

  8. I think every kid does this. When will we ever learn as parents to HIDE THE SCISSORS?!

    Stopping by from SITS!

  9. How sweet that the oldest left the curls for you!! Haha! People keep telling me to cut my little fella's hair- but I just won't do it and thankfully we don't have an older brother to do it for us!
