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.  :)



By the way, if you are in need of help to buzz your child's hair, here is the best youtube tutorial I found for using clippers:  How to cut a childs hair with Clippers. Tutorial by expert hairdresser Ken Graham.

Your little guy is a cutie; you did a good job with his hair. He sure looks like his daddy; it is easy to tell that you and your husband enjoy him so very much.
