Kid Plus Mom's Razor Equals
We returned from the camping trip and had plans to visit Bob, Maureen and Coaster Kid. My kids were coated with a layer of dirt and sand, so each was told they were to take a bath, Gameboy first.
Due to having the sensory issues, he does NOT like to wash his hair. He asked me to cut his hair in an effort to avoid washing it. I told him it had to be washed, even did it to ensure he wasn't too smelly.
Well, he comes out of the tub reasonably clean (today, he was introduced to a pumice stone to slough off the elbows and knees he doesn't clean well). Chef was up next. As is typical, Chef called for my assistance with the fact that "Mom, there's HAIR in the tub." Yes, there was more than what Gameboy sheds, but hey, he could have sweated a bunch of it out while camping.
Nope. A few minutes later, Gameboy was sitting in front of the TV and turned to ask a question. Hmmm, he looks different. See if you can see the difference:
Yes, he did this to himself. (and the bug eyed look is because he knows the red eye reducer fires the flash three times-he opened them really wide between the second and third!) Apparently, he decided that my razor on the size of the tub would be a quick way to get out of washing his hair.
We met up with Ed for his dinner break and each of us had some ideas about how we could modify the look. Ed said it looked like he was attempting to do Peter Gabriel's reverse mowhawk:
I thought that I could continue the look by putting crop circles on his head. Then he could say that aliens visited:
Meanwhile, Chef Jr. said we could adjust it to make his head the reverse of the Avatar Aang's head arrow:
I'm debating how long I should torture him by leaving it this way. I'm thinking I should send him to school and scouts with his modified look before taking the electric clippers to it. If you were me, how long would you wait?
So far, he seems to be pleased with the look. See? I got a genuine smile when we were coming up with things we could do to his head!
