Before and After

So I blessed/cursed with kids with A LOT of hair. A lot. And both have crazy curls that haunt my nightmares. Detangling! Conditioning! Combing! My life is consumed. Andrew's hair was getting out of control. Usually, I bring him to Justin's grandma to get his hair cut. She's been a hairdresser FOREVER and does a good job. However, she is gunshy about cutting off Andrew's curls. I asked her when babies were old enough to use clippers on and she was flabberghasted. So when I wanted to cut Andrew's hair way short, I was on my own. I suppose I could take him to a kid's haircut place, but 1) They are lame and 2) He is only 11 months old, and haaaates having his hair cut. I resolved to do it myself.

I was totally worried and put it off. I cut Justin's hair with the clippers but hadn't ever attempted cutting a BABY'S hair with scissors, no less. But I gave it the old college try, and guess what? I am officially one of those obnoxious people who happens to be good at EVERYTHING. How annoying is that?

Tres annoying.

Anyhow, here are the before and afters. Andrew's hair is so curly after his bath that he looks like he's wearing a wig. I even put him in the same sleeper for an honest comparison. Yes, I am even good at blogging and posting before and after pictures. Don't you just hate me?

Before: Cute but out of control.

You should've let me cut his hair.
I was JUST at your house and would've done it for free. He could've looked like a mini-Saunders!!
