Hair today… Gone Tomorrow..

That title couldn’t be more fitting!

Sunday started out kinda funky.. We accidentally slept in until 12:30.. I got up and made breakfast.
Katie and her family were coming over for dinner. I was in charge of Spaghetti sauce, garlic bread and chocolate cake.
Meanwhile, the house was a little bit messy. We had laundry everywhere. Aaron was more than willing to take care of all the hanging clothes and (Thankfully!) left all the folding for me.
After breakfast I started on the chocolate cake. Everything was going great until it had been in the over for about 10 minutes. Aaron smelled something burning. The cake a completely overflowed. I check on it and put a cookie sheet underneath it. Aaron suggested we clean the cake batter off the bottom of the oven and I said.. naw… it’ll be fine.
A few minutes later the ENTIRE apartment was filled with smoke! The batter was basically on fire. Aaron quickly cleaned it up and it was a nice sunny day so we opened every window and door to get it aired out.
The dog choose to hang out on the porch..away from the smoke.

We knew we really needed to cut Aaron’s hair. It was getting way too long..

This was Saturday night..

We usually buzz his whole head at about a 2. (For any of you that know what that means.)

Well.. we could only find the 3. I buzzed his whole head at a three then cleaned up his neck, ears and sideburns with the naked clippers.

He stood up and faced me and I notice a little tuft of hair above his left temple. I picked up the clippers turned them on and placed them against his temple and shaved about 3 inches back before I realized there was not guide on the clippers!!! I just basically bic’d a 3 inch section on the left side of his hair. I cried for a really really long time and just kept saying I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry.. He couldn’t stop laughing. (Have I ever mentioned how much I love him?????)

I made a few suggestions.. I could hit him with something and we could go get stitched right there, so it looked like the doctors had to shave it..

Or we could just play the cancer card..

I worked on it for about an hour trying to blend in that section. And yea… it wasn’t happening. So I buzzed his whole head with the naked clippers.

This is my husband today..

To make things worse.. he didn’t shave today so he has more hair on his chin than he has on his head..

He was such a good sport today after work.. We just laid on the bed and took silly pictures.

Look how cute my little baldy is..

He calls the picture below his “Alien” face. He did this right after I shaved his head with tears streaming down my face. I said..”What is that?” He told me it was an Alien. I said, “Because alien’s don’t have ears?” (he folded them down and smashed them) And he said “No, aliens don’t have hair.”

He laughed.. but I cried more!

As if he didn’t look like a starving victim before, he looks even more like one now! But it feels soooo cool! He suggested we could glue the hair on the floor back on. But hopefully it will grow fast!

By the way.. Riddick just stood around trying to figure out what we were doing..

Oh and just in case you didn’t notice how short his hair was.. here’s one last shot..

    Riddick wasn’t wondering what was going on. . . he was making sure you weren’t coming after him next with those naked clippers. He’s no dummy!!!

  2. Mixed Up Me says

    And also, I think Aaron likes his hair that way, he just knows you don’t, so he doesn’t ask you to cut it that way . . .so, pretty much, he likes your mistake.

  3. Well ive never had it this short, its even hard for me to get used to sometimes.. and my head is soo cold now.

  4. I love the haircut and it looks better in real life, plus it will be the right length in a couple weeks so who cares. At least is wasn’t your hair. You would have to pull a Britany Spears…:)
