Long time no write! Sorry for the absence, it’s been a mix of being busy, and playing outside! We’ve had such wonderful weather and the boys are loving every minute of it. I’ve also been trying to take advantage of the sunshine and break out my shorts (my legs are so white)!
This weekend we bought a haircut/clipper set. We keep the boys’ hair pretty short and the fequent barber trips are starting to add up. I’ve been wanting to learn how to do it myself but I’ve been afraid! Lol.:) When Jim and I were first married he allowed me to cut his hair. He was in the Army and only needed a touch-up….easy, right? Well, let’s just say after I was finished he had to sport the bald look for a while! It’s true and he swore I would never cut his hair again. So that explains why I’ve been so apprehensive to try again. Yesterday we went ahead and bought a Wahl clipper kit (with color-coated guards). Thankfully the kits they sell make it easy for even a clipper-challenged woman like me. Gabriel went first and I think it turned out pretty well. Not perfect, but it will do until I improve. Believe it or not I also broke Jim down and cut his hair too! I actually liked his better and started getting the hang of it. Inside the booklet it even says it “takes practice” okay great, how many bad cuts to my boys have to endure before I get it down!? I was pleasantly surprised though, and the clippers are already paid for by using it twice already, not bad!
