Tuesdays Toot

After 4 years and Kailey sitting on her hair, she was in dire need of a hair cut. Being broke with a pair or scissors and no cosmetology skills, I thought I would take the honors. I was thinking how hard could it be to cut a straight line? A bunch of third graders are the only ones who will be noticing her hair and what do they know, right? Little did I realize I was dealing with a horse's mane here. This child has the thickest hair, add a little curl to that and it was wee bit harder than I thought it would be. I put it in a pony tail and whacked it off 7.5 in., before cutting, eyeballing and cutting more to get it straight. So it didn’t turn out all stylish like a beautician did it. At least it appears to be straight and that’s all that matters. Besides I was going for that choppy look that used be IN, anyways. No I'm just kidding, I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. I may just have to think about cutting my own hair. Of course I think that would require lots of baby steps and a good mirror. Seeing how I have no coordination in the bathroom as you found out before. I don't think I will be trying this anytime soon.
Also, for the record the kids loved her hair. So in that case their opinion does matter.
I guess I should have done my homework first it must be 10 inches for Locks for Love!


  1. You're a brave woman. I cut my daughter's hair once and I was pregnant at the time. (I do things like that when I'm under the influence of a brewing baby.) Hers turned out cute but I've not been brave enough since.

  2. I think you did a good job if the kids loved her new hair, you should have posted a pic after the haircut. I used to do that to my daughter too when she was younger.

    Take care and have a nice day.


  3. i cut my daughter's hair when she was a baby, but now not anymore... i'm afraid that i make mistakes :)

  4. I have cut my kid's hair at least once when they were little - when they get older, it gets tougher cause they want certain styles. Anyway - WooHoo - congrats on your achievement.

  5. You could donate to the Pantene Great Lengths - it is only 8 inches for that (I donated mine)!!!
