Mom's Hair Cuts


When you were a child did your mom ever cut your hair? I'm talking bangs that spanned half way back your head or the bowl cut? The cut that gets shorter and shorter in an attempt to even it out? I remember all these cuts and a few more.

 Can you even believe this cut? If you look closely you can see a layer of hair below my ear where the hair poofs wildly to the right.
Like steps: bangs, layer below ear, long layer.
As a child I swore I would never do this to my own children. I promised myself and my future spawn that they're looks would be as important as my own and that I would never use their heads as a teaching tool for myself, or an experiment, or an exhibit of my laziness.

Then two days ago it happened. The boys got out of the tub and they could barely see from underneath their bangs. I grabbed some scissors and went to town.


But now I feel terrible. I broke my word. I made a promise and didn't keep it.

  
 
BEFORE:
Alfalfa?
BEFORE:
I told you, he really couldn't see.

AFTER:
Beau obviously traumatized and trying to hide it my acting like he's engrossed with his treat.
AFTER:
Chewy is literally crying with shame and simultaneously glaring at the camera.


Naturally I tried to justify my actions. 
They couldn't see! 
Their eyes begged me for help. 
There is no way they could look worse, I said to myself. 
I assured myself, they wanted me to do it.
"They will love it" I say to no one at all.

 I obviously tried to simultaneously assuage my guilt and buy back their love with rawhide bones. Shameless actions indeed.

But let's be honest for  moment, shall we?
THIS USUALLY COSTS ME 90 dollars!!

CHEAP OR FRUGAL? YOU DECIDE
