No shortcuts! I cut Jo-Jo’s hair because I had to!

July 8, 2009 1 Comment »

My husband and I had a fight. I obviously did something terribly wrong. Something that goes against the code of manhood. I crossed the line and entered into an area that I had no business venturing into….

Oops, my bad…

Well here’s the thing. My husband and I had been talking at length about when exactly to give Jo-Jo his first haircut. He wanted me to wait until he turned one next month because of those old tales that you are supposed to wait until then. I don’t know why those old tales hold any weight. The problem is, I could not WAIT because my son looked a mess.
I can’t stand for little boys heads to look unkept. I can’t take it. And it was bothering me so bad. I asked and asked my husband to cut it, but he wouldn’t. So I took his clippers and with my unskilled hand I started clipping.
The end result wasn’t pretty and it made my husband pretty mad.
So my husband had to end up going behind me and clipping Jo-Jo’s hair the right way and clean up the uneven mess I started. My son still has two bald patches that I gave him. I didn’t mean any harm, but I didn’t know what I was doing.

So here’s the problem. I can be quite impatient. But, he should have cut it when I asked him to, right or we would not be in this mess! Anyway, Jo-Jo doesn’t look too bad. He actually looks a lot better than before. And his hair will always grow back. (I hope)Now when I ask my husband to cut Jo-Jo’s hair, I don’t think I’ll ever have that problem again…If so, I sure will get a lot of practice with the clippers!
