The Haircut

My poor son will have to wear a hat for awhile. Um, yeah, probably shoulda taken him somewhere to get his hair cut. It really was just operator error but that doesn’t really change the fact that my little boy has a bad haircut. What to do, what to do. Let me explain.

I decided that Patrick really needed a haircut (he still had the baby house cut - various lengths all over) and I decided that it wouldn’t be a big deal to just use the clippers – I use them on Andrew all the time. I picked out the clipper attachment that would be a good length and started to trim. His hair was pretty long in some parts. All of sudden I realized that there were a couple of nearly bald spots. To my horror, I realized I had chosen the tapered trim attachment. What?!!! I quickly changed the attachment but really the damage was done. I attempted to fix it but the final result…he needs to wear a hat. Poor guy – he doesn’t really like hats as much as Calvin. :)

Side Note: Andrew was at work when I cut his hair and they were in bed before he was home. He laughed for about 5 minutes this morning when he saw my handiwork. I’m shaking my head in shame. :) So far, Patrick is keeping the hat on – maybe he suspects something? :)

The Update: His hair is somewhat repaired. Nana clipped while I held him – it’s much better but very short. I really wasn’t intending to cut so much off. Oh well, it grows back, right?! The boys really look like twins now with nearly identical haircuts. I’ve taken picture of the before and after but I’m not sure I should post them…it’s quite bad.

yes you know you want to post it :)
It will just remind you to get someone else to cut it next time :)
Isn't it good that he is too little to care what his hair looks like?

I'm sure he looks cute. Don't be too afraid to try again, Tom's first haicut was a disaster, it gets easier.:)

What a wonderful story to recall many many years from now. Patrick will love you for your efforts. Of course, he will also do a lot of laughing perhaps. Calvin may be a little reluctant to have you get near his hair with the clippers. Aren't they both just more fun than you could have ever imagined. Please keep sending the stories. I love them so much.
