At first I wasn't a big fan of the longer-hair look for little boys these days.  Then, it started to grow on me.  I thought we'd give it a try for our boys, they have always had such short hair.  Letting it grow was an adventurous change. (plus, it was convenient to not have to get a hair cut every 3 weeks)!  The boys liked it, especially in the bath tub...making crazy hair dos with shampoo in their lengthy locks.  They would discover new ways to comb it, slick it, frizz it, or just let it go "moppy."  
Well, it is now approaching spring and summer.  Their hair was still in the "in-between" stage of short and cute-long.  We decided a chop was due.  With all the out-door play, swimming and heat coming up, I know this was the best choice.  The boys didn't have a single argument at all.  Out came the trustee clippers with a #4 attachment, and Daddy doing the shearing.  A heap of blonde hair later, we had these 2 handsome boys! 

"I look bald", said one.

"now I can run super fast", said the other.

Had we remembered that just 3 days later it was "CRAZY HAIR DAY" at school, we wouldn't have had to resort to these WIGS to give their heads the craziness they needed.


This little monkey didn't want to be left out of all the excitement !

Seriously, how do you do it with all those kids. You must be amazing or something, of that's right you are.

Hey are you teaching dance any these days? Does your house have a dance studio in it or was that your last place?

Your kids are all GORGEOUS! Hank hates the clippers and begs for a scissor cut every time but alas, I am not skilled enough to make him look half way decent with a pair of scissors. Clippers are so much better. I love home cuts!
