Haircut Day


Today I gave 8 children a haircut. No, I'm not a hair stylist and no, I didn't get paid. However, I DID save a LOT of money by not having to pay for any of the haircuts.

Actually, two of the kids got a trim just so they wouldn't feel left out-- Gloria, in particular. She keeps cutting her own hair and so I trimmed hers a bit to straighten it out a bit more. Then Claire got a trim just so she could be in the picture with all the kids who got a haircut today. She just got a haircut 5 or 6 weeks ago and didn't really need anything done with it yet.

And now, just for your viewing pleasure: my children with new haircuts. Faith, Grace, Claire, Clark, Joy, Sam, Gloria and Ezra

Thanks, Karen! I had a little help with haircuts from the Sesame Street Channel on YouTube. I set up the laptop on the bathroom counter with a bar stool in front of it. What a difference from the last time Ezra got a hair cut!!

Yeah, I wouldn't have sat still without sesame street. :P

I let the little ones watch TV when they get their haircut. It makes a world of difference!

Wow- that's a lot of hair to cut! I started cutting my husband's and two boys hair a couple of years ago. I've estimated I've saved $1000 dollars so far. I just don't think I know how to cut my two girl's hair though.

Your blog looks neat! I've been reading through your old posts and you have a beautiful family!
