    Well, he’s a really cute sociopath out on a day pass.

    My son had a Sampson thing going. I cut his hair while he slept, turning him like a chicken on a spit until the deed was done.

    Now an adult, he gets his beautiful hair cut so short that I suspect they have to do it with tweezers.

    Have YOU been cutting my son’s hair?

    Whenever I cut my kids hair, then take them to an actual stylist, I get major stink eye.

    Sociopath do or no, the Wee Niblet is a cutie. Keep the stories coming!

    Can’t help but wonder how much mockery the ears will entail for the next 47 years.

    I too cut my babe’s hair. And I did it the NIGHT BEFORE picture day. Now I have an 8×10 reminder of my foolishness. Although intend to continue cutting his hair, I will just shell out the 12 bucks for the one professional cut before picture day.

    That’s it. I’m going out to find a monkey eared hoodie. Bad hair day solved! Thanks for the chuckles!

    I wonder, Jocelyn–could you have been subconsciously responding to his unfolding true identity? Here you found yourself providing a really short hair/nearly shaved head haircut to a boy with a precocious inclination towards wearing goggles under water in the bathtub. We already know he has extremely sharp eyesight in the woods. It’s of course just my personal association here, but could you be raising a future NAVY SEAL? I know, I know–shut my mouth after washing it out with soap. But who knows where Identity comes from? I personally have known only ONE Navy SEAL, and he was a stellar human being, good, true, noble-hearted, even heroic. You, however, may be thinking, “No child of mine will ever ….!” Just an idea, just a thought–and feel free to delete this if you wish it to perish.

    Now that last photo looks like me when I discover there is no “slow lane'”in the pool and everyone else is super-fit, speedy and downright determined to finish their uninterrupted 100 laps. Yep, I can relate to that photo.

    god love him, i shall have to send my not so wee 13 yr old limelet his way as my boy has endured the all over death row buzz cut his entire life until recent months when no amount of bribery has sufficiently swayed him to allow me near his head with the clippers. i even offered to let him have a mohawk for the first day of school, in protest of the new uniform policy (which i might add even forbade him from having his picture taken of picture day because it coincided with a game day for the football team and team members had to wear jerseys which were forbidden for picture day….and if you can diagram that runon sentence i will give you a dollar and consider giving myself a mohawk)

    anyway, all that to say i think we niblet and limelet might get on famously as they commiserate the woes of buzz cuts at the hands of thrifty and somewhat subversive mamas.

    also, wanted to thank you for the birthday greetings you left at my place over the weekend. much appreciated, dearie.

    I learned long ago that cutting hair is much harder than it looks. Sigh…

    GREAT photos! Who needs school pic day when you have beauties like these?

  12. Say It says:

    hehe, and you were worried about the school picture haunting him!!

    LOVE the snorkle in the tub!!

  13. Susan says:

    snort is right …my goodness your blog is tres funny. I love the way you write and I will be back again soon for more smiles and snorts. cheers from the dog lover from Nova Scotia

    I used to cut my boys hair, but they both want longer hair now so it’s harder. Still cut my own, though!

    There is nothing more important than childhood picture day. Either spend the money on nice clothes and a haircut, or prepare for years of therapy bills.

    You realise that an all-over buzz cut constitutes child abuse in at least four European countries…
