De-Hair-ified

My kids were in serious need of haircuts. Da Boo could hardly see with her bangs hanging in her eyes and the Boy was growing a lovely set of curls that, while they made me want to rub his head constantly, might make strangers questions his gender. Luckily, I happen to know some amazing women who cut hair and who live right here in my neighborhood! Off we went to Jessica's house to shed a few hairs.

Some before shots:


Poor thing wonders why everything has a yellowy hazy to it.


Can't you just see yourself winding your fingers in these lovely locks? So sad to see them go...


Da Boo, being the bravest, was the first one in the chair. This is Jessica cutting their hair. Let's pretend that's what I look like, shall we? Same name, same dress size, right? And no, she didn't get all dolled up in anticipation of the photo shoot for my prestigious blog. She always looks like this. Always. I need to take this girl more brownies...


The Boy was a little less excited about his haircut. The first half was spent with me sitting in the chair, firmly holding him in place. Then Jessica, the brilliant person that she is, gave the Boy a squirt bottle...he was in heaven! And he got to squirt it! At Mom! What could possibly make a boy happier?


As soon as we got home, da Boo wanted to put in a headband. Jessica not only tamed those bangs but she gave Boo some light layers so her hair falls nicely in the back.


The Boy still was not convinced he needed to be put through that torment...until I let him climb the stool and check out his new do in the mirror. Sigh, no more curls to fiddle with.

Thank you, Jessica!

I know how emotionally attached you get to hair, remember molly's long hair? But I do have to say he looks mighty handsome!!!

*gasp* What do you have against long hair!

I know I am prejudice, everyone in our house has hair past the shoulder blades :)

They have the same smile! How cute!

I just love your little guys' smiles. They are just mini versions of their parents, have I mentioned that before???

I like the water gun idea! Our boys hate it when I cut their hair.

Jan said...

They are absolutely adorable Jessica. And their smiles make me smile. And please do take her some brownies. No fair.

With cute kids like this, you really need to put their picture at the top of the blog so everytime I pop up your blog I can see their cute faces. I vote for that last picture of the boy to be the one at the top....it is SO CUTE!!! You could win a photo contest with that smile (and dimples, too....wow!)

Does Emily have a blog? I want to see pictures of HER kids, too. :)

Emily said...

Emily is MUCH too paranoid for that!

anyway only been in the 21st century for a few years now...can't rush these things.
I prefer to read my sister's stuff anyway :)

Sooo cute. They look great. We all can't be cute like her. Then it would just be the norm and noone would notice anymore. I know I am rambling. It is late.
