I can’t believe it happened.
No, let me rephrase that: I can’t believe it happened AGAIN.
Once and it’s just something that a lot of kids do.
But, when it’s twice in one week…well, you start to feel like a bad mom.
Last Monday, I showed you the pics of what happened when my boys cut each other’s hair. All their long, beautiful hair gone.
And so many of you shared stories of your kids doing the same thing or even you doing that when you were a kid.
No judgement, just laughter.
But, what if I tell you that for the second Friday in a row, my Bear got out the scissors and pretended to be a barber?

I felt like a horrible mom.
And still feel guilty that it happened again. Like once is funny, twice is a total Mom Fail.
Let me remind you what my Bear looked like before any of the haircuts:
