Harry's Hair

Remember Harry's wild curls? Well it seems he was not liking them!
Harry doesn't like it when his hair gets long and bushy and he has asked to
have it trimmed before. Well, last week while I worked at an auction,
Taylor watched his brothers. He walked into the kitchen to see
Harry cutting his own hair! He said that he was trying to use the
kitchen scissors and clumps of hair were everywhere! He told him
'no!' and took the scissors away.
But Harry was persistent, following Taylor around the house and giving him the scissors, as if to ask Taylor to finish the job for him! Well, this is what Harry looked like. His forehead was bare and he had chunks missing from all over his head. He had literally laid the scissors against his scalp before taking a cut. ha.
He seemed very happy and pleased with himself! lol...
So the next day I finished the job for him.
And gave his brothers a cut, too.

See, he wants to show you one of his bald spots! Oh, and I really should mention that this was the SAME DAY that Alex locked me out of the house in my nightgown. Yep, it was a really eventful day, that and working an auction. I couldn't sleep that night. I think I couldn't unwind! lol...

  1. He's so cute! Just look at that smile! He has beautiful hair - I would love those curls. Oh well, it was one way to get a summer cut, right?

  2. I think he did a great job...sort of a buzz cut but a little longer on top.
    My daughter once cut her own bangs(fringe in England), it was photo taking day at school, and I laugh everytime I look at that photo.
    I was wondering who you left in charge, when you were working, now I know !
    Lol....

  4. Jo ~ fringe? I didn't know they called bangs that! Cute. Yes, Taylor or The Mister, if available to work from home. They can't be left alone, that is for sure! LOL.

  5. Well it seems he took the saying
    At least part of it in playing
    If you want something done right do it yourself, to heart
    Of course the only part the would apply is the start
    Oh the truly was an adventureous day
    Locks, Scissors and Port a Potties oh my, must really cause dismay..LOL

  6. I love to hear about your boys. Joshua cut his one time with clippers and when we got home he was outside crying because he really messed up. I think he was around 12 then.

    -take care

  9. You need to be a reality TV show!

    (My sister shaved off half her eyebrows when she was around ten - took years to grow back)

    Is that your adorable alter-ego with hair blowing in the wind in the little red bug?

  20. Dear Betsy, this is hilarious.;) I mean we can laugh about it now here, but i can imagine that it is less funny when it occurs - particularly to be locked out in a nightgown.;) Still your boys look great with their new summer look.;)
    I am off for along summer break thus I am wishing a lovely summer, see you soon again,
    xoxo

  26. You are cracking me up! I don't know if it was as funny for you though as it is for us.

    I hope they all got it out of their systems that day and you had a few easier ones to follow...is that possible? :)

  27. Kayren ~ well, yes I cracked up, too. I mean...how can you not? This summer is going down as the craziest yet...and we're only three weeks into it! lol. Glad to bring a smile to your face, dear. I've been thinking about you!

  28. i love a good summer buzz cut ...so easy to care for !! the curls will return soon enough~

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my! I'd feel so sad to see those beautiful curls get cut away but I'm sure a close summer cut will be so much cooler. I am almost ready to do the same to my mop of hair...lol!

    PS I hope you bury a key somewhere outside so there will be no more lock outs!

  30. Oh my goodness... all of those beautiful curls :(

  34. lol When we were growing up every one wanted long hair and beards and my two sons grew up wanting GI Joe cuts.Extremely short and if it grew just a little it bothered them.
    So I guess your son is in the swing of things with todays' modern world

  37. Well, I think it's admirable that he was willing to take matters into his own hands. And, his new haircut looks very cool and summery.
