Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Today my four year old Tzvi showed his truly mischievous nature. He did something that all parents dread. Something I have dreaded since the first day he learned to use a pair of scissors. 

Today, Tzvi shaved his head straight down the center. Like this:

He found Jeremy's trimmer in the bathroom and zip! While I was fast asleep. I heard nothing. I saw nothing. Neither of the older girls saw him either. 

I have a friend who chopped off her hair when she was about 6 or 7. Her mother found her in her bedroom with scissors and locks of hair on the carpet. I always thought one of my girls would cut a strand of her own or her sister's hair. I never imagined that Tzvi would attempt his own haircut. 

One day I will laugh more about this. I thought about hanging this picture up in his room as a warning and a cautionary reminder. 

All I can say is thank G-d for baseball caps!

p.s. post-fix up haircut pictures to follow.

Update 7/3: As promised, here he is after we "fixed" his hair!

Come again!
