I just want to hear that I am normal and some of you out there have done something similar.
My ds aged 3.5.
Today has been really hectic and I have been rushing around like a blue arse fly, and one of the things I had to do was cut DS hair, as he was so hot last night that it got really sweaty and thought that would help him.
When I said cut ds hair I mean use the clippers. I always use grade 5 of my son. I got him all in position about to put the grade 5 attachement on when the phone rang, (saleman ahhh) in the meantime ds was getting bored and started creating, I rushed back to him and before I knew what was happening I had run the clipper up the back of his head without any attachment on it , it would have looked stupid to cut his hair as normal with a stripe up the back, so I had no option to shave my gorgeous sons hair off . So now I have a bald headed son. It doesn't look hidious as he has a lovely face, but I just feel awful.
DS loves it because thats how his daddy has it, but I know I will get so much grief from within the family for cutting my sons lovely hair.
I feel so guilty that I was rushing about so much, and there was the bloody attachment, right next to the phone.
Ahh Breeze - it's no thing man, don't stress and feel bad. I thought you were going to say he got hold of the clippers and there was a nasty accident. It'll grow back in a flash. Personaly I think you should take loads of pics and look back and laugh at it. Bet he's still handsome and at least he'll be cool tonight. no need to feel guilty or low, you were being a great mum to be thinking about how to cool him down, so his hair is shorter than it should have been , that ain't no thing.
LOL breeze,i did the same to ds when he was 3,dh hated me for it but everyone said how his big brown eyes stood out even more and that he looked really cute,it does grow really quick and a lot stronger
Oh Breeze ... you silly nana!! I did giggle at the 'pint of guinness' look though!!
Don't beat yourself up about it .... as everyone says it will grow back and very quickly too!
I just had DS hair cut really short (though not as short as yours) so that he could look a little bit more grown up ... some of the boys at his kindy look so much older than him ... I felt he needed to look a bit tougher ... but he still looks like a baby to me!
My sister recently shaved her 8 month old DDs head ... she reckons it grows back thicker ... ????
breeze thats the worst bit taking them to groups, I did ds grade2 accidentally but he was only 4 months old. All the mums at the toddler group kept calling me the evil mother. It does grow back thicker though
Your son will be rapt! Not only does he look just like Dad but he will also be more comfy at night.
Once while cutting my husband's hair and doing round the ears with scissors oops i cut his ear and it even bled!!! eek!!
