Dog Food Breath and a Poopy Diaper

Adam just ate dog food and then tried to kiss me. I wouldn't let him. Go ahead. Call me names. Dog food breath stinks.

I just posted a comment on my sister's blog and the captcha they gave me was "shist". I'm still giggling over that one.

Continuing in the vein of complete randomness, I just have to tell you about my day. Have to.

Let's all go back in time, back to about 11:30 last night.

You know what; I'm not in the mood to re-hash the whole thing. The point of the story is: my mom was going to watch my kids for me today so that I could get some sewing done. That did not, in fact, happen because we were all out there at 2:00 am and then the little boys and I stayed there until 5:00 this evening.

I have set up babysitting by my mom three times now so that I can sew and each time I have been unable to actually sew a single stitch. Grr.

I gave Noel a haircut the other day. I've never done a girl haircut. Boy haircuts (with clippers) are easy. A blindfolded chimp could do a clipper haircut. But a girl's haircut? I kept telling her that I had never done it and wasn't sure if I could. She didn't care; she wanted me to cut her hair. She didn't care if I totally screwed up her hair.

So, I armed myself with a pair of sharp scissors, a comb, a squirt bottle and a general idea of the length she wanted. I started out by getting her hair wet with the spray bottle and combing it all out straight. I then started under one ear and cut her hair to the length she said she wanted, leaving myself a little extra length for insurance. I continued around her head, combing out sections and trimming then even with the previous section. I got all the way around her head to her other ear, finished up and then turned her to face me. The hair over the ear I started on was a full two inches longer than the hair on the other side!

Long story short, I evened it out and learned a valuable lesson. I will cut the hair under both ears first next time and then make them meet in the back.

Or just pay a pro to do it.

Here are pictures of the finished style. She is asleep right now so I tiptoed into her room and took pictures while she snoozed. You really can't see her hairstyle very well, but she's pretty dang cute so here they are anyway:




You like those headphones? That's a big no-no. Little stinker...




So, umm, it's a bit shorter than the shoulder-length bob she asked for, but.....

Yes. A shoulder-length bob. But she likes it and so do I. So there.

It turns out that Adam is poopy. Dog food breath and a poopy diaper. It just screams "Snuggle me!" doesn't it?
