A Brave Thing
I did a brave thing today. A brave thing for me that is. I cut Will's hair all on my own. Carl always asks me to help with his hair cuts and I am always nervous about it. Last time we cut Will's hair, Carl used the clippers and I did the longer part with scissors. Well lately Will's hair has been getting a little long and unruly. I have been resisting cutting it, as I do love his baby fine soft silky hair, but it is just too hard to control. Besides, Carl had been wanting to buzz it for weeks now. So after many youtube video tutorials and mustering up my courage, I put Will on the toilet, wrapped him in a sheet, and buzzed my baby's hair. I can hear all you experienced hair-cutting mommy's laughing now. :) I have to say I am pleased with the results, though I know it is definitely not professional. Thankfully his fine hair and the light blond are forgiving. :)
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
