hockey hair

My favourite easy way to deal with bored, hormone addled, completely bizarre 11 year old girls who have a crush on a boy named Will? Let someone else do it.

Thankyou, Susan.

The tall hormonal kid is going to her aunt’s house for the night. The small squeeky one is having another 8 year old friend stay for the night, which means she will be entertained nicely too. I might manage to read my library book. In peace.

Today I’ve already done the hockey shuttling and watching from the stands. I even managed to take them for breakfast and a haircut. The breakfast was only because the hair salon wasn’t open yet, so we decided to kill a little time with coffee and pancakes. And in the hair salon I managed to talk the tall hormonal one into finally cutting off the mullet. She was starting to look like Rob Lowe in Youngblood.


What? Oh.

I think I was saying that it pays to have family close and to have friends around for your children to play with. Or I was getting close to coming to that point.

That, and you can convince an 11 year old girl that a haircut would dramatically decrease the dork factor of the bangs that I cut too short last week. Hockey hair worked for Rob Lowe in the 80s. It doesn’t work for my daughter in 2012.

    My oldest son is 12 and he’s got some pretty long hair. We let him keep it because he likes it and it really does look good on him. I did have to try to convince him a few months ago that bangs are a bad idea for a boy.

    They’re actually a bad idea for me, too.

    I really should have taken a picture of her hair before I cut it off, just in case in the future she starts thinking about a mullet again. Growing the sides at the same time as the back works much better.

    “Rob Lowe in Youngblood” LMAO

    Just got my boy’s hair cut for the first time a few weeks ago at 3.5 years-old went surprisingly well.

    enjoyed checking out your blog
