It’s cutting hair. How hard could it be?

Well, I was delusional and thought I could cut Tommy’s hair. I have seen the boys get haircuts hundreds of times and I looked it up on Pinterest so I was confident I could do this. Perhaps the first error was not having the proper equipment.

I only had a beard trimmer but was still confident I could do it. I was getting less confident as I started and couldn’t get the guard thing to work so I took it off deciding to free hand. I was feeling semi-confident and then I looked at it. Tommy was not too thrilled with my attempts and demanded it all be shaved. I was feeling bad about and was distracted by my failures, pondering how prideful I was and how we have been learning in Bible study Monday nights about how God can humble the proud then it happened. I accidentally shaved off half of his eyebrow then to add gas to fire of my failures I attempted to even them up.

Don’t let me cut your hair….. ever!

I have a long and complicated history with hair. I once tried to cut my husband’s hair while we were dating. My dad ended up having to fix it, which was really just a buzz cut. I also one time got the bright idea to cut my own hair. You can read about that adventure here. That little “oopsy” resulted in a mullet.

My hair is ridiculously curly and out of control most of the time. So hair and I have a dysfunctional relationship. Thankfully there are people and products that can be brought in to help me tame my mane and cut my children’s hair so no one else has to suffer!
