Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Dumb and Dumber, the Haircut

My older boys get their hair clipped by dad.  He is great with the clippers and can do a great fade.  But my little guy I like to keep that sweet little boy, longer hair look.  Usually I just take him to a kids salon and pay for it.  Since we moved to a small town this is a bit more challenging so I thought that I would give the boy a haircut myself.  I mean come on, how hard could it be?

Oh how wrong I was!  I cut off way too much in the front - not to mention its not a straight line - and the top was a total hack job.  My husband ended up clipping it up to salvage what I had done to my poor kid.  The front was the worst.  I made my son look like Jim Carrey from Dumb and Dumber.  I guess that its good that he his so little and has no idea how "dumb" he really looks!

As for me, I am hanging up my scissors.  I will not be attempting this again for the sake of my children I think their hair care is best left with Dad or anyone that isn't me.

I freaking LOVE that movie and watch it at least twice a month! Hahaha!
lol your son looks much cuter with his haircut than Jim Carrey with his!
We've all had those moments - I can vividly remember my own mom cutting my bangs too short...or even worse, when I did it to myself!

Your little fella sure is cute. Happy WW from another pink-loving Kimberly :)

I haven't touched JDaniel's hair since he started talking. I could really mess his hair up.

I think he rocks the haircut much more handsomely than Jim Carey... ;)

Awesome. I've totally done that. After I did that to my boys, I refused to cut their hair, hubby does it. So you totally aren't alone, lol.

His hair doesn't look nearly as bad as the Dumb and Dumber haircuts. He is a little doll!

So cute, but honestly he's not nearly as bad!
OH, he doesn't look at all like the Jim Carey character! He looks absolutely adorable! I love his smile.
I agree with you about not cutting the kids hair, I would never do my kids either. I am just now attempting to do my doggies hair. HaHa

Hahahaha! My mom is always telling me to just cut my kids' hair instead of paying for it, and this post is the exact reason why I don't.

It is probably a good thing that you cut it so high on his forehead...he doesn't look near as dumb as Jim Carrey with the "bangs". ;-) Honestly, though, it really doesn't look bad...but just probably not what you wanted it to look like. Don't beat yourself up too bad.
