And I thought it was bad when the *kids* got ahold of the scissors.

It's much worse when their father does.

"It can't be that hard to cut boys hair," he said before I went to my book club.

"It's getting long," he added. "Besides, I have guides on the razor."

"Please don't cut his hair." I said.

"It just had to be evened up," he said when I got back. "But then it kept getting shorter and shorter. Cutting hair is harder than it looks."

"Sigh," I sighed.

Oh I know EXACTLY how you feel! My husband did the same thing to my little boy when he was 3 and had given himself a haircut...Dad thought it needed to be "fixed" and ended up just shaving the whole thing off. And he has blond hair, he just looked bald! Broke my heart. But I'm hear to tell you that it does actually grow back pretty fast...for now just go with hats! :)

Glad I have company.

Steph, it's bad but it's not like we lost cute braids. :)

Oh nooooooo....his sweet baby hair...fortunately, it grows back so quickly. It makes him look like such a big boy.

Awww...he's got such a cute face though!

My husband does this all the time. I have three boys and he has cut both the older twos, and now he is eyeing up the littlest one - he's only 16 months old with a serious front of head cows lick.

Makes me scared to leave the house.

At least when the kids get hold of the scissors and give themselves a haircut they've got hair left on their head!

Oh no Sarah. My husband was just saying yesterday that our youngest needed a haircut at a professional least he wasn't threatening the scissors himself!

I agree that the cute little face could handle any hair style!

Oh no, I guess I'm lucky. Kris didn't want anyone to go near Meredith with a pair of scissors. Might be different for a little boy though. He still looks cute!
