I'm in So Much Trouble

Well, actually, I think I may have managed to smooth things over. But last night was not a pleasant night around the GreenHouse.

Since I'm not bringing in any income anymore, I've been trying to be careful about my expenditures. I keep trying to figure out ways to keep some of our hard-earned income in our bank account a little longer.

So would could be more natural than to try to avoid spending money on kids' haircuts, right?

Yeah. You see where this is going.

It's not like I was going to try to cut the boys' hair. No. I'm smarter than that.

BUT, honestly, all the girls needed was a trim. And how hard can it be to cut in a straight line? I have a masters degree, for goodness sake. I'm fairly intelligent, I have a good eye, and I can DRAW a straight line (most of the time.)

But this was Sophie's hair last week:

And Sophie's hair this morning:

Note: I put it in foam curlers last night after cutting it because I couldn't bear to let David see JUST how short it was. He has a thing for his girls and their beautiful hair. He does not think trying to save money on haircuts is a good idea. And now...

I don't either.

I think she looks beautiful, but I know what you mean. "Just a trim" is the reason Lizzie always had a bob when she was little!

She looks DARLING! I don't even dare cut the boys hair! It will grow! Does she like it? We haven't seen you guys forever! Are you hibernating like us?

It's so Sophia. though. You aren't the only one who wants to cut their kids hair. I tried it with Kassie years ago and --well I blew it. Hers started out like Sophie's and pretty much ended like Sophie's.
And ask my mom about cutting my sister's hair just before the primary parade one 4th of July. It's a treat!!

Just bring 'em here. You know I've always cut my kids hair, for better or for worse. I have to say that it's really not that enjoyable to cut boy's hair. There is a lady in Midvale that only chages $5 for kids cuts. $5! For me, making the appointment seems like more work than pulling out the clippers...until I'm halfway in. I'm sorry you had to have that stress.

Argh. Boy's should be boys', I think. I can't stand when I make grammmeraticala errors in comments!

I agree she looks so cute!

I think it is cute. Personally, I have always found boys cuts easier than the girls.
