A $60.00 Savings

ball-of-hair.jpg

Last week we realized the need for our three pretty little boys to look a bit more like boys than girls.  All three of them had beautiful curls wisping over their ears. 

 The cost of a haircut really limits our ability to have the boys get their haircuts at a barber or for them a beauty shop. Therefore, we set up shop in the kitchen and one by one clipped the boys hair and then my own.  It truly is a treat to cut our boys hair.  The twins cry the entire time and I have to hold them between my legs so that they don’t run away.  I usually have to use the biggest clipper and trim all their hair as quickly as possible.  I was able to take a little more time and trim around their ears as well.  I don’t think they cried any less, I’m probably just a bit more immune to it. 

Following their hair cuts, I cut my own.  At least the front looks good, I’m not sure about the back.  The picture is the collection of all our hair, a little red, dark brown, blond and light brown.  I think we should try to sell it to some wig makers.  Anyway, 4 hair cuts later and WaLa, $60.00 of savings.

  1. I think we have all inherited Dad’s tradition of saving money by doing the hair cuts at home. Gary does the same thing with Wesley and Andrew. I do not, however, remember you and Michael screaming and yelling when Dad cut your hair 🙂

  2. I, too, love that cool picture at the top. And that picture of the hair is GROSS! I am the designated “hair cutter” in our house and I hate it. I have caused some blood shed on more than one occasion (and I think they have all been on Michael!!) Bryce is the worst about sitting still. He doesn’t cry, but he squirms because he says it tickles. His haircut is always an adventure because he has such fine, thin hair and it shows every cut I make 🙂

  3. Okay, now I’m not passing judgment here, but it may be that your children cry BECAUSE you hold them down and cut their hair right off their heads.

    It would scare the crap out of me if my stylist wrestled me to the ground and trimmed my hair while holding me down tightly with her LEGS. I think I might cry, too.

    Just an observation.

    I think you guys are great parents and wonderful stylists (hopefully, you know by now, I’m just giving you a hard time!).

  4. Aunt Juliet, Bravo on realizing which one was missing. Dakota is probably on the other side of the counter on the floor whereby he is missed in the picture. I was thinking it might be a good idea to take another one soon with all of them showing. I wasn’t planning on using those pictures when I took them. The picture is four pictures blended together and meddled with using the freely downloaded software, PAINT.net.

    Ann-Marie. We know by now, you are just giving us a hard time. I about wet my pants reading your comment (not literally, that is a metaphor for laughing really hard), as I imagined your stylist wrestling you to the floor and holding you down as she trims your hair. If it were that much of a hassle for them, they may ask you to not come back. The boys would probably love it if I asked them to not come back.
