He looks like a crazed man!
So I finally relented and agreed to let Dad do the honors. Obviously it was a bit of a challenge getting a one year old to sit still with scissors near his face but we sat him on our bathroom counter (which is thankfully quite large) and I gave him all my jewelry to play with.
While we worked on Ryder's hair, Jane was busy putting on eye shadow. I keep a box of old make-up under my sink and she loves to play around with it. She puts it on her chin so she ends up with a five o'clock shadow.
And the results! We absolutely love it. We googled various hairstyles for toddlers and decided on a little punk rocker style. Shaved on the sides with textured layers on top. It can be styled with gel or just swept to the side. He looks sooooo adorable and hip. A little hipster. It's nice to see his face for once!
My husband is a rock star at cutting hair. He's been doing his own for 10+ years and is a whiz with kids, too. We had a friend's two year old son over this week and my hubby has cut his hair twice now. So cute and Jane loves when she has kids her age over. I wish she had a sibling her age that she could play with all the time because, no offense to Ryder, but he's just not cutting it. She loves playing with friends, which she doesn't get to do often since she's not in daycare. I've been trying for a long time to get connected to a mom group in my area but they're just so strict with their rules. Any who, check out these cuties.
Aside from the lessons, we're just keeping busy with our usual day to day stuff. Taking walks to our nearby bridge and park, reading looks of books, board games with friends and other shenanigans.
I took Jane with me to run an errand and stopped to take a pic of this nasty looking storm. The clouds were so low to the ground I called my husband to make sure we weren't under a tornado warning. We weren't and the whole thing passed us over with nary a raindrop. Gotta love those unpredictable afternoon storms.
Till next time.
