Haircuts, Forts and CNN

Great Clips restored my faith in bargain basement haircuts (at least for kids) by correcting Golden Boy's hair yesterday at no charge. He was quite skeptical about letting them at his hair again, and I don't blame him. When the woman tried to ask him if he was unhappy with his haircut, he just looked at me. Way to put the kid on the spot, lady! I raised him to be polite and his interpretation of polite is to NOT tell a stranger that she did a shit job cutting his hair. Maybe tonight he'll sit still long enough for me to get a picture since he's just so handsome with his new 'do.

When we got home, GB realized he'd forgotten his math book, so he couldn't do his homework. Belly removed the bamboo table runner and used that and the dog's bed to make a fort in the middle of the living room. The cat flung another glass ornament off the tree. The dog used the game room as her personal latrine. Clean laundry was in a basket on the dining room table, so I started sorting it only to find my favorite socks now have large holes in them. WTF? Just thinking about making dinner caused my head to hurt, since Belly wanted bacon and eggs and GB wanted a bacon burger, making Belly cry. Why was Belly so wounded by his brother's craving for a bacon burger? The world may never know. So we had pizza and watched How The Grinch Stole Christmas. And just to appease The Belly, we put imitation bacon bits on his pizza. Sounds appetizing, no? Eventually I went to bed and left my husband to handle that other stuff. Well, except the dog mess.

CNN has an article about little boys and play kitchens here. I rest my case.

DO NOT, under any circumstances, attempt to eat Campbell's Won Ton Soup.

You make me laugh. It is good to know that my house isn't the only one with crazy nights.

So glad his hair is fixed. Bad haircuts if kept, can scar you for life.

Well I'm glad to hear GB got the do he wanted. I never have faith in any of those haircut chains.

Sounds like another lovely day in the family life.

Is it me, or was it like Every Single Christmas Movie Day yesterday? Tons of Christmas movies were on TV last night.

why do they get so wounded at the weirdest things? Jackelope does that. It really perplexes me.
