Planning Ahead Are Smart

Next week is picture day at the kids’ school. A couple of days ago, Hub told me he was going to cut Monk’s hair. We essentially give Monkeyboy a crew cut; his hair is thick-thick-thick, straight as the proverbial board and grows like a weed so his only other choice would be a Prince Valiant-esque bowl cut. The Hubster didn’t want Monk’s hair to look too short and freshly shorn in the pictures. Cutting it then would give it a week to grow in and look natural.

As you can see, that worked out very nicely. The clipper guard fell off as Hub was going in for a pass at the front (you can still see the very low spot dead center if you look closely) and so he was forced to even it out. We think the resulting haircut makes Monk look like one of the Spartan boys from 300.

Awww. I think it's kind of cute really. It's very Buddhist monk, so it's kind of appropo, right?

I like that he's got this sort of skeptical look on his face, like he saying, "Really? REALLY??"

cute, very cute.

Ahahah. Oh, bless his heart. He's cute as he can be though. And the expression? Perfection.
