Much Ado about HAIR  
Okay. I have an admission to make. I'm vain about my hair.

I've known that for some time. What I didn't realize was just how vain I am about my kids' hair.

Nolan took Ethan out running errands on Saturday. Evidently they went to the den of mediocrity that is Sports Clips, and long story (which includes a Dennis the Menace comparison, an absentee stylist and some exceedingly bad judgment) short, they both came home looking like someone used a weed whacker to cut their hair.

I normally take the boys to my hair girl, the brilliant and very kind Arviel at the salon 'Reds'. We missed their cut appointment a week and a half ago, and I guess Ethan had enough of hair in his eyes.

I'm glad school pictures aren't for another few months.

The topper, though? Last night about ten minutes before our dinner guests came over, Aaron CUT HIS BANGS AN INCH FROM HIS SCALP.

Seriously? SERIOUSLY???? HE'S EIGHT YEARS OLD! Rassafrassinfrassin kid.

I wanted to wring his cute little neck. I restrained myself, so no one call CPS. Luckily, Arviel is going to work us in tomorrow morning to try to repair the damage. Nothing can be done about the tragedy that is Ethan's hair.

Yeah. Vain.

From now on, we're ALL going to Arviel. Nolan included.

That's all.

Congratulations! Now you have a time-honored 'my kid cut their own hair' story!

Also, I'm so, so sorry. Maybe at least they don't care too much, unless they're miniature Dracos in the making? I feel your pain, cuz my ex-MIL got my 8-y.o. daughter's beautiful thick, golden curls cut uber-uber short last month (like, 6 inches cut off the back, which is now 1" long all over the back of her head) because she was tired of her poor son having to deal with the tangles. Arrrggh. The poor kid started wearing a winter hat pulled down low over her head to school. In June.

Also, PLEEZ take pictures before the the magic Arviel fixes their hair tomorrow? Think how you can embarrass them at their weddings!

Ethan has done it twice over the years, but this is the first time for AJ.

And good idea. Gooooooood idea. Pictures, it is.

I can't see little boys being able to resist just a teeny-tiny whackage given scissors and opportunity.

Yeah, well, they do it again and I'll whack their little bottoms. ;)

I beg to differ:

There's always clippers. Anyone's hair can be fixed with them.

I'm rolling on the floor...literally!

We go to SportsClips all the time- but you've seen my boys hair- buzz, buzz, buzz and we are good for another 6 weeks. If my kids had your kids hair- I would be very protective of it too! I can just imagine how they must look right now. Please take pics!!

You do have the best hair...and not ONLY because it is red either. ;)
