I'm an idiot

Please, someone take away my clippers before I scar my child for life. hehe I cut the kids hair last night and boy oh boy did I screw up. The blade has a tendency to stick when I first turn it on. Well I loosened the screws and oiled it, tightened the screws again and adjusted it again. I had it purring along, grabbed the kids head and began cutting right in the front of his hair. There was only one little problem. I forgot to put the 1/2 inch guard on the clippers.


As soon as the clippers started cutting his hair I said 'What the fuck?!?'. I was a little too late to save him though. He has a nice square bald spot on the front of his head now. I used the 1/4 inch guard to cut the rest of his hair so the bald spot wouldn't stand out too bad. I'm hoping that in a week or so I'll be able to trim his hair again and the bald spot won't be as noticeable.

I called my mom right after I put Nick in the tub and she was not happy one bit. She is convinced he is going to get a cold now. I tried explaining to her that it is a virus that gives people a cold and not getting your head cold. I told her she was just lucky I didn't decide to shave his whole head. hehehe She said she wouldn't have let him out of the house until it grew out if I did that. hehe I just can't wait for my dad to let into me. He is super protective of my son since his father isn't in the picture. It's only hair though and it will grow back. It isn't like I did it on purpose. I just got ahead of myself. I guess I was a bit more tired than I thought. hehe

I'll take a pic of the kids head when I get home from work and post it. I keep calling him my poor bald baby and kissing the bald spot. grin I think it is starting to annoy him.

On the knitting front, I'm going to take the pink bag to work to work on during lunch. I figure I can get more done on it than the shawl in an hours time. Plus, it is easier to stop in the middle of the row since there are only 4 stitch markers and I'm not using any to keep track on the shawl right now. There are like 20 repeats per row and I don't feel like finding that many markers. :P

That's really funny.

Reminds me of the time I was waiting on a customer and she was on her cell phone talking to someone about why they used a floobee on her kid's head. LOL

You could always knit him a hat....
