Colin might look like this for a while:
Because without the hat, he looks like this:
See, Colin has this awesome thick, wavy hair, but when it gets too long, it gets wild. I asked my mom to cut it last week, but she hadn’t had a chance, and I just couldn’t stand it anymore.
We have a small set of clippers that I use to trim Christian’s hair in between real haircuts, and I went to work on Colin’s head tonight. I had the guard set on five, which I think would have been fine. Then I took the guard off to trim his neckline and around the ears. I put the guard back on to get a couple of spots that were still long, and just like in a scene from America’s Funniest Home Videos, the guard had somehow dialed back to ONE. There was no stopping at that point. I couldn’t leave the little bald patch in the back of his head, so we had to go all the way.
I still think he looks cute, but I thought Christian was going to cry. He has a weird emotional connection with Colin’s hair and always talks about how “awesome” it is. (I think it’s because his own is thinning, but don’t tell him I said that. 🙂 ).
This is only part of the hair that came off Colin’s head. It would make a nice toupee for someone who wanted to look like Rod Blagojevich, wouldn’t it?
I wish I had had my camera out while we were cutting Colin’s hair, because Noah had a look of absolute horror on his face as we were doing it. He left the room for a minute and I yelled, “Hey, Noah, come here. You’re next!”
He yelled back, “No, Mommy, I’m not coming.”
