At Least He Didn't Cut His Brother's Hair

I just got this picture from Lily:

Owen cut a big ol' honking hole out of his hair yesterday while his father was getting Gibson down for a nap. If you're a parent, you've no doubt been here. 
I believe we can safely eliminate "hair stylist" from possible future careers for Owen.

Lily is going to call our friend Melissa here in just a few moments. If you live in Tallahassee and haven't met Melissa, you need to. She's not only genius with scissors, she's sweet and funny and she's the wife of our beloved Juancho. 

I hope she has some time to see us today. I asked Lily to see if Melissa can trim my hair too. It's ridiculous, this hair of mine. It's starting to get hard to brush the tangles out of and that hasn't been a problem since the invention of cream rinse (and forget the iPhone- cream rinse is the best invention of the past one hundred years in my opinion) so you know it's too long. 

I think a trip to town to go get our hair trimmed would be just the thing I need. It is a beautiful, cool day here in North Florida. The air feels all kissy. Oh, it's going to get up to 90 later on but right now this second? We are blessed. 

All right. Here's something I saw on the TV last night. It's an advertisement for some sort of ham and I don't know about that but the grandfather in it charmed me to pieces. 

"Grandpa, where do we go when we die?"
"The ground."


Let's all have a good day.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. I love that commercial and Owen's new look....just about fell over laughing. I got a pic of Mr Chips yesterday after he got hold of a pen confirming that tattoo artist is most definitely a possibility.
    Do enjoy the rest of this beautiful day!

  2. I cut one of my very long braids clean off at the root. I was in trouble for a long long time.

  3. Oh man. I'm thinking maybe you should colour it in with yellow marker?

  4. The hardest part when both my kids cut their hair was not laughing. It is a rite of passage!

    Was Owen upset or has he seen his handiwork?

  5. This would be very funny but now Owen's hair will likely be shorter again and I have been waiting patiently for it to grow out again... Oh we'll, luckilly it does keep growing. One time my sister and I were mad at my other sister and we did this to her - as kids. You will have a nice day out. I am curious if Owen explained what he was trying to do? I am sure that is a story in itself. Have a great day! Sweet Jo

  6. Owen's hair is magnificent and he has passed that milestone in his life. Photographic proof has been secured. See how sneaky he is too that he didn't do it right smack in the front?

    I like that kissy air too. Enjoy it.

  7. I agree about the cream rinse!

  8. "that air feels all kissy" is the perfect way to describe that feeling, wow! Sometimes you knock me right off my chair at the little library. :)

  9. LOL -- that commercial is like a toned-down version of "Sh*t My Dad Says."


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
