Oops.

I've been meaning to cut Russell's hair for the last week because it was getting so long. I really only wanted to trim his hair but he would not keep his head still as I tried to trim it (despite cookies and milk). I finally got out the razor and thought, "well, at least this will be fast." To sum up the next 3-4 minutes, it was like shaving a wet cat. Exactly. Dan held Russell while he clawed to get away from the razor (and me) and yelled, "floor, floor!"

I used the #3 guard because that is what I use on Dan's hair but it was too short. Half-way through, Russell had a buzz cut at the back and 3-4 inch hair on top. At this point, I asked myself, "what have I done to my child??" I used the #6 guard on top and it seems to have turned out okay. Not great, but okay. Russell has thin hair like Dan and the sides of his head seem to have a few little patches of visable skin around his temples. My only consulation is that his hair grows fast. He looks older with the shorter hair (I think) but I did like the longer hair on him.

Cutting the kids' hair! Haaa! No parent enjoys this part of the game. It looks fine in the pictures and he looks really grown up. I follow Emma around with scissors for about 2 days after I give her a hair cut so that I can find anything/everything I missed. She was perfect at the stylist, the one time I took her, because she was a little afraid. It was awesome, but I am too cheap to spend $20 on her little head of hair. But now you reminded me how horribly hard it is to cut it myself.... only $20. Hmm.

I think he is ADORABLE.

BTW, just noticed the Voice of the Martyrs link on the right side of your website. I get their e-mail updates. Very eye-opening, isn't it?

So that's why Russell didn't take his hat off yesterday ;). I think it's really cute!
