Adventures in haircutting


Yesterday Russ buzzed both our boys' heads. Or at least he tried to, until the clippers died smack-dab in the middle of the job, sending me off in a panic to the nearest store in search of a new set.

Because no mama wants to leave her son's head looking like this:


(By the way, this is why we only buzz Cooper and Blake's heads if cutting their hair ourselves. We are in no way, shape, or form qualified for anything else.)

Luckily I found a new kit, with color-coded guide combs nonetheless, and Russ was able to do some real damage to the bathroom floor.

Unluckily, I was not back home in time to advise against the wisdom of putting the four-year-old in the bathtub with a floor full of hair right next to it.

Clean up from hell.

I was home in time to advise against the mohawk idea, but it didn't matter. I was out-voted 3-1.

And so okay, I guess I think it's kinda cute, in a "baseball season ONLY" kind of way. But after that, it's gone! (And I'm sticking to my guns on that one.)


  1. o my gosh..they are just too darn cute and I just want to squeeeeeze the stuff'n out of them..need a grama sitter again?

  2. Wow! When Russell shaves a head he has just one setting... bald! Good thing they got those Halverson good looks to save them!! That's why Drew doesn't want Erik to cut (i use that term lightly!) his hair any more!

  3. the boys look adorable...
    heres a tip for easy cleanup... extension cord and driveway LOL

  4. Yes the family hair-cutting skills didn't make it to this branch either... thus the reason that all three of the boys here today went to the BARBER!!!

  5. Cute! I like the mohawks! LOL! :)

  6. I suck at haircutting... we used a Flowbee for years. The suck-cut, no clean up required!! Now they get it professionally done!!

    Your boys look super cute and ready for summer! :)
