So, have you ever done anything crazy while your spouse is away? I mean, something that isn’t bad, but will be a BIG surprise? Well, when I got home this morning from working out (my parents are staying with us for a few days so Em was not alone…) Em greeted me at the door and said she wanted me to trim her hair. A “trim” usually means we play beauty parlor on my bathroom counter and I literally trim 1/4″ off her ends, just to keep them healthy. She told us a while ago she wanted her hair to go down to her buns. Well, today we sat up on the stool in the kitchen to play beauty parlor. Em said she wanted it really short. I asked her if she was sure. She insisted she wanted me to chop it off! So, I did! I wanted a cute angle, short in back, longer in front, so I proceded to chop. Well, after a six inch piece of her golden locks dropped to the floor, I got a huge smile on my face and asked her if she wanted to go to a real hair salon for a real haircut. (Are you kidding? I know where my gifts lie, and I’ll be the first to admit I’m no stylist!) We got an appointment for 2 hours from the time I hacked off the first little section, so we had lunch and painted fingers and toes. Em was so excited and all I could think was, “Oh man! Your dad’s coming home in a few hours from Utah! What on earth is he going to think?!”
We went to the salon where I got my last haircut before we laid Noah before the Lord. They don’t do kids, but he saved my hiney! Em was a perfect little client. She sat still and smiled HUGE the whole time. She loved it! She actually keeps walking around the house saying how much she loves her hair…Thank God it wasn’t a horror haircut story! Anyway, Jason will be home in about an hour and a half…it’ll be a surprise, but a good one. When the cat’s away, the mice play!
