Sunday

I took the kids to IHOP Sunday morning for breakfast. They were wonderful. And I ate my food and then stole some of theirs when they were not looking. I do this to help them cut back on childhood obesity. And I order the healthy meal for me and then realize I do not really want it. I instead want their fried ham and bacon. Oh how i love bacon. I want to slip a ring on its finger and make an honest woman out of it.
What? They were not going to eat it anyways.....
See, here is my Middle Twerp offering me pancakes. I passed. It was a little too Lady and the Tramp for me. (Please notice I really did just roll out of bed and go...as can be proved by my atrocious bed head...obviously I did not look in the mirror.)
After our bellies were full, we went to get the boys' hair cut. I just wanted a trim...nothing more.
Here is Baby Twerp before.....
He was an angel...
He loved every minute of it.
This him after....what a QT Patootie.
Meet Middle Twerp before. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE these curls. Seriously. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE....I love em.I specifically said I just wanted it trimmed up....
a little. (I think he looks like Harry Connick Junior here.)
Snip, Snip....
Oh my, are all the curls gone?
After....
They call this a trim???? My baby has curls no more...I wept.

What do you think? Before or after?

I "refound" your blog tonight and saw this post. I had to laugh because I just went through this with my son and his curls.

Your kids are darling. I am glad I rediscovered your blog, I always enjoyed reading here when I used to. Not sure how I lost you in my favorites folder! This was a cute story to come across because those tears were so familiar. Granted my son is older now and doesn't cry when he loses the curls, but he sure used to!

Okay that kid of yours is cute, curls or no curls. But....they'll grow back! And bed head? Honey, are you kidding me? Your hair looked great!!!!! ;)

I envy your bed head look. Mine is not fit to be out in public most mornings.

I prefer the after look myself. Either way he is a cutie pie.

With those eyes, who cares about the hair.. no really- he's adorable either way. The "after" makes him look a little older I believe!

He's adorable either way! But I would have cried, too! This is exactly why I started trimming my boys' hair myself!
