Living Arrows 2017 week 42 – decisive cuts

Notice something wrong?

It seems N decided to cut his hair because it was too long.  He really didn’t want to tell me what had happened so I knew he must have cut it himself.  Eventually he told me.  I nearly laughed.

He was relieved when I said most children have done it before (I omitted that it’s usually younger children though.  What’s annoying is that it’s school photo time in 2 weeks and while his hair will have grown, I’m not sure we’ll have enough to chop the other side similarly with enough left to not look stupid.

What I can’t believe is that apart from myself and one of the sister in law’s, noon else seems to have noticed t. It is quite noticeable!

    1. He’s mortified. Also sounds like I’m going to have to ask him about all photos I post on social media now. Turns out a child from school asked him why he’d cut it (hardly any people noticed, even in the family!), his mum had showed him it on FB. So he wasn’t impressed I shared it on there. Looks like he’s going to be censoring lots of photos now. Sad times.

  1. I shouldn’t have laughed but this made me laugh!!! We’ve all been there – my hair used to be longer than J’s (past my bottom) and my mum refused point blank to let me have it cut, so one day at school I decided to take matters (and scissors) into my own hand. Half a day later, and several trips to the bin (and to fill up my tights with my hair – which I had sneakily taken off!) I ended up in the headteacher’s office with a mismatched bob / scarecrow look. Mum cried, dad laughed and it’s a memory etched in my mind forever. Bless him #LivingArrows

  2. Oh dear, so many children do this don’t they. No harm though hair soon grows back. He could start a new fashion trend I think x
