Today was Hair Day in our house. I do Miss Imagination’s hair nearly every week (though sometimes she can go two weeks), but this week the boys both also needed hair cuts. Humorous Thinker is no problem; while it’s not his favorite-ever activity, he doesn’t hate it. Perpetual Motion Boy, however, is a different story. He hates it. Really hates getting a haircut. He hates sitting still, and the boy has an incredibly sensitive head. Even combing it can set him off, meaning that I have to be especially careful with the scissors or I might accidentally poke him when he suddenly thrashes, which, of course, would set off more thrashing. I have to steel myself for the whole experience, which is why his hair hasn’t been cut since July (I cut Humorous Thinker’s hair sometime in August, but let the other skip). I powered through, though, and have three very cute kids with “new” hair.
The side view
The back! My first-ever cornrows up! It required her lying down, head on a pillow and turned as much as I could manage while still having her able to see the screen. I think this style will last two weeks–I’ll put twists into the puff at some point, and then we’ll do a braid-out/twist out to get us to the next weekend.
I just think this picture, with the sunlight, is cool.
Here is Humorous Thinker. I guess he was showing his “thinker” side tonight–no smiles.
And here he is playing his trumpet, which is why he was so serious in the previous picture
Good photos of Perpetual Motion Boy to come, since he is no longer in perpetual motion…
