I Don't Cut Hair

Some of you may have noticed that pictures of the stay at home mom have not been appearing on the blog recently. There are pictures aplenty of the rest of the clan, but this mama isn't posting pictures of herself. Why? Because of the hair. The hair that is SCREAMING for a haircut. As in GET THEE TO A SALON!

Now, some of you are certainly talented enough to cut your own hair. And I applaud you. But I do not count myself among your number. Nor do I plan on cutting my son's hair. EVER. I will take him to the child salon down the street and happily shell out the $20 to have someone else do the trimming.

I do not cut hair. Not anymore, that is.

When I was younger, my parents bought a very fluffy puppy for my sister and I. And because my mother is oh so talented, she always trimmed the dog's hair herself. As I grew older, I wanted to help and despite the fact that trimming the pup took at least an hour, I sat there with a scissors and trimmed every last hair. When I was done, she was BEAUTIFUL.

But they say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Because, according to the rest of my family, the trim was a tad uneven. Some may even go so far as to say that CLUMPS of fur were missing here and there, which may or may not be an exaggeration.

And then I was voted off the island and not allowed to trim the dog's hair ever again. And while I could go into some very entertaining stories about other hair cutting experiences that occurred in my family over the years, I will attempt to restrain myself. Suffice it to say that it involved some very short bangs and lots of hats for an extended period of time.

Thus, I do not cut hair. And I will be dragging my limp, thinning hair to a salon in the hopes that they can resurrect my lifeless locks.

Then, just maybe, I'll show you all a picture of how it turns out!

  1. LOL I have been wearing mine up because it is easier and the other day I wore it down and realized it needs a desperate trim. I suppose that happens when we enter into mommyhood!
