The Bad, The Better, and The Bald.

This is the story of a haircut gone wrong.
I won't completely blame my poor mother because I failed to inform her that at the time, Matthew didn't like the sound of hair clippers. They scared him.
In the summer of 2006 Matthew went to stay with his PopPop and Nana (my parents) for two weeks. I guess while he was there my mother noticed his hair getting long so she decided to take matters into her own hands and give him a haircut. It shouldn't have been a big deal cause I had been cutting his hair for years. But what she didn't know what that all those haircuts were usually tear filled scream fests. He HATED the hair clippers. He didn't like the sound they made, especially when they were right next to his ears. It drove him mad! But we endured it cause we didn't have the money to go get his hair professionally cut and I didn't want him walking around looking all scruffy.
So fast forward to the day we met Matthew and my mom at the airport to pick him up. It had been 2 weeks since we had seen our little boy. We were excited to have him back. He walks off the plane and "what the..." I think were my exact words. I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

So yeah, not the greatest haircut. I decided to just go ahead and finish the job and just buzz it all off. Of course we had to have a little fun with it and gave him a temporary mohawk.

Matt of course decided to join in the fun. He told me to buzz all his hair off too. I adamantly refused until he said if I didn't do then he would.
So more fun ensued as well as another mowak.

This is the second part of the story...
After completely BUZZING their heads I clean up and go to the store for something. I come back home and Matt and Matthew are locked in the bathroom. I ask what they are doing and Matt says "You'll find out in a little bit! hahaha!"
They come out and my jaw hits the floor. He had taken a razor and completely shaved their heads!! I mean, it was bad enough that I to buzz it. But to completely shave it off!!! Aaarrgh!
On the bright side, Matthew didn't seem to mind.

This is what we were left with. We fondly refer to this picture as "Pinky and The Brain." Classic.


  1. I remember now, it took this long to know the whole story that is so funny. My husband last year did that to himself and I was not pleased. He looked like a cancer patient. Not to mention his head glowed in the dark. He looked awful I was made for until it grew back and told him he better not do that again. He thought it was so funny but it wasn't in the least bit.

  2. HAHA, I love Matthew's Brain impersonation in the last pic.


  3. tee-hee-hee! good times. but aren't you glad it's in the past and you can laugh instead of cringe? and you have pictures to use as BRIBES in the future...
