I supposed we’ve been living on borrowed time for the last almost nine years, having children who all have beautiful long hair and having lots of pairs of scissors around, but in fact, today was the first time we’ve had a chance to learn what happens when the two combine without supervision.
Linda took the kids over to Grandma’s house for the afternoon and as my 5yo son G- relates it, he was busy playing and got really annoyed with the hair constantly being in his eyes.
So he did what any other self-possessed, determined young chap would do, he snagged a pair of scissors and without anyone even knowing it had happened, gave himself a bit of a trim…
To be fair, it’s not as terrible as it could be. When my Mom was a child, she and a pal gave her younger sister a haircut. A haircut that apparently was ghastly terrible. So, not quite that bad.
But still, it was quite a surprise to see G- walk in the door with his relatively long blonde hair and, well, super-short bangs.
So it’s not life threatening, and there are certainly plenty of people who have much more dire problems in their families than a bad haircut, but I’m still looking forward to it growing out. Just a bit. Well, maybe an inch or two…
Any other funny kid haircut stories out there?
