The 100 MPH Haircut

This morning, I finally mustered up the strength to give Nathan a full body spa treatment. The to do list included: a good soaking in the tub, finger and toe nails trimmed, ear's cleaned, and the dreaded spinning child wild haircut. I honestly am thinking of investing in one of those special tables with a little harness used by dog groomers. Hair cuts are always put off until there's not much face left showing on the boy. Baths alone are a chore, but to triple stack the deck and tackle all three jobs at once is an olympic sport in our home. Now I must go clean up the mess. Tub to clean ... nail clippings to pick up ... hair to vacuum. Dh returns Monday night ... He may get a bill for this job or at least take me out for a nice dinner

P.S. After "treatment" photo. And whilst I was cleaning up the mess, the little Gypsy took off on his bike down the middle of the road ... just learned how to open the garage last week ... must dash off to hardware store now to buy an extra lock!

Looks like you did a great job, I'm asuming that's the 'after' picture! Nathan..what a great name, I'm sure you already know it means "gift from God".
I think a nice dinner out is not unreasonable ~ for any reason! I'm thinking I might not mind doing that myself. When I get home from work, I'm usually too tired and just want to crash, but Monday, would work, I wouldn't have the end of the week tired's yet!
We were to Mackinaw last year. We took our teenage grandsons. We figured we better grab them one last time before they move on to other interest! We had a great time. The oldest starts U of M in Sept and the younger will be a senior in high school. Love em to pieces!

There must be a special place in Heaven for special moms who take good care of special children. I'm still wanting our afternoon tea. Who knows when you get your new house I just may show up on your door step. :-)

His haircut looks great...and he's in a happy mood I see =). You must have done a good job of the 'spa treatment'. About figuring out how to open the garage door...that sounds like a bit of a crisis till you get the extra lock on it. You are a very special Mom...I vote for that dinner out with a shopping trip thrown in when your dh get home...=)
