Luke only gets his hair cut on Tuesdays because that is kids’ day at Great Clips. The last few Tuesdays have slipped by us so today’s goal was to get his lovely locks down to a manageable length.
However, I was feeling particularly ambitious (or cheap) today so I decided to do it myself. Long story short, I am clearly not “cut out” to be a hairstylist. (Yes, I threw that pun in there for the “shear” pleasure of it. And that one, too!)
After taking one look at his new hairdo in the mirror Luke ran crying to his room, locked the door and vowed that he was not coming out for a month until his hair grew back!
Dad had to come in to sweep up my mess…
I listened to their tender conversation from the hallway. He finally convinced Luke to come out of his room for a Dilly Bar. Luke did come out of his room – with a bag on his head. Knowing that I was feeling particularly horrible at that moment, Luke looked at me with his big puppy dog eyes (which you can actually see right now because his hair is so friggin’ short) and asked if I would get him the “Trolls” movie. I grabbed the keys and told him to hop in the car.
So he dropped the bag and put on a smile as he and I headed to Dairy Queen and then Target. In the end, my $7.99 kids’ day haircut that I avoided from Great Clips only cost me a Dilly Bar and an overpriced movie. (Okay, and a Nerf Gun, too! But at least they were on sale.)
