Once Is a Funny Story, Twice is a Mom Fail

I can't believe it happened.


No, let me rephrase that: I can't believe it happened AGAIN. 


Once and it's just something that a lot of kids do.


But, when it's twice in one week...well, you start to feel like a bad mom.


Last Monday, I showed you the pics of what happened when my boys cut each other's hair.  All their long, beautiful hair gone.


And so many of you  shared stories of your kids doing the same thing or even you doing that when you were a kid.


No judgement, just laughter.


But, what if I tell you that for the second Friday in a row, my Bear got out the scissors and pretended to be a barber?


Good God, woman, don't you ever watch your kids?


Didn't you learn to put the scissors away?


Your kids are going to get really hurt soon.


What are you doing when your kids do these things?


At least, that is what I hear in my head. Trust me, I've said that and worse to myself.


And tried to defend myself but my responses sound weak even to my own ears.


He was in the kitchen, having a snack.


I did put all the scissors away. Except for the kitchen shears, which were dirty and in the sink. Didn't realize he'd climb up on the counter and find them in there and use them to cut his hair.


He was out of my sight for less than five minutes.


What was I doing? Well, yes, I was on the computer.  I do work.


Do I think that my children could somehow get hurt if I don't keep them in my sight at all times? Yes. Though, they could still get hurt even if I can see everything they are doing...


I felt like a horrible mom.


And still feel guilty that it happened again. Like once is funny, twice is a total Mom Fail.



Let me remind you what my Bear looked like before any of the haircuts:


After haircut #1 last week:



This week's haircut:


If he does it again, he'll be bald.


They recognized us and called my kids by name at the salon. After all, it was less than a week since we'd been there.


Total mom fail.


But, here's the thing: anyone who would judge and say that I'm a horrible mom for this...well, no one is as hard on me as I am. So, trust me, I've already thought what you may be thinking and worse.


*****
Btw, Natalie at Mommy of a Monster does a Mom Fail Monday you might want to check out if you've ever felt like I do.

Also, I saw this posted tweeted out yesterday by Lynn and thought it was a good philosophy to adopt: In Which I'm Not Even Worried About It.

If it is any consolation the hair cut looks cute. I was most devastated by the little blondie that needed to get his locks cut off :( I think I would have cried. Oh, I kids are quick so don't be too hard on yourself!!

Blogger Posie Patchwork said...

Oh please, my twins did this to each other, they actually said, aged 2 "we were looking at each other like a mirror" FYI they are not identical & have different hair lengths!! One did a chunk at the back, the other, went the WHOLE WAY AROUND. So that twin ended up getting a chic French bob with a very short blunt fringe & totally rocked the look!!
Where was i, um, fallen asleep after a huge morning of morning sickness & the 4y.o. (supervisor) at preschool. Where was my husband, on a plane on the way home, he pulled up, woke me up, found twins & a hair trail up the stairs & kept saying "don't get up, you don't want to see this". I sew, i have dozens of scissors, they had never touched them before & never since, it's not bad parenting, they will do what they want to do, aged 2 normally. Next morning at the hair dresser, they saw me coming & said "we see this EVERY DAY" & i believe it!!
My sister cut my fringe off when i was 2, it's part of life!! Hair grows back, i think your son looks extra handsome!! Love Posie

Not a bad mom - I've walked in on my kids more times than I can count with scissors up to their hair (just good timing on my part)

Don't beat yourself up too much - and don't let anyone else beat you up.

He was just telling you that he wanted his hair shorter! If he cuts it again, just remember that he is wanting a buzz cut and give in... He'll be a cute little GI Joe!!

Don't worry you're not a bad mother, just a mother who can't get her sons haircut wishes right....LOL

He still looks adorable, but thank goodness he didn't cut his hair all the way down to his scalp!

I caught my son the other day snooping around the kitchen. I don't know what he was doing but he was trying to get into something.

lol.. okay... in all seriousness, to beat yourself up THIS much as to say you're a horrible mom over your kid getting scissors... girl stop that right now! It isn't like you put them on his art table and subliminally messaged him to cut his finger off... it was a mistake - and boy do those happen around here routinely!

And, I do like his short hair... he's super cute! No harm, no foul. :)

You're not a bad mom! Jeepers. We've all had our lousy mom moments. None of those thoughts even crossed my mind. Well, I guess the only thing that DID cross my mind is, "Well, heck, where IS a good place to keep the scissors so MY kid doesn't find them? It sounds impossible!" lol

Here is what is more important: he looks extremely happy. This means you likely kept your cool & didn't berate him in an ugly way. That alone makes you a patient, loving & awesome mom. :)

Some kids are determined...very very determined. Bubby is that way. He can wait me out days to accomplish something he wants to do (and I am not joking). He just waits for me to slip up and for the opportunity arise again.

I'm thinking he liked his brother's shorter cuts and wanted to follow suit.

Blogger EmptyNester said...

Girl please! If I just began to tell you the things our girls did while right under my nose you'd realize that IT HAPPENS. But, it doesn't make us bad moms. Not to mention the fact that, once they decide they're going to do something, they're going to do it. And, being the crafty little angels that they are, kids will find a way. And anyone who says their kids have never done anything like this before is probably lying. LOL Roll with the punches sweetie! You're doing fine.

They're gonna get up and around and into things. They're kids. This is normal - you can't be on top of them every minute. And if you were? You'd just criticize yourself for a whole new set of things. You're doing great shell

You're not a horrible mom! Your son looks adorable with his new haircut(s).

My daughter cut a patch of her waist length hair to about five inches long. And, my niece cut another niece's bangs to one inch long.

At least your son stuck to a trim rather than a hack job!

No way, you're not a bad mom at all! These things just happen, what can you do? He still is a cutie though!

Okay, so the kid was adorable before and yet he just keeps getting cuter! ADORABLE. Oh and the mommy fail? Meh. I just say your kids are incredibly resourceful if they can find scissors in the sink. :)

well he's a pretty good little barber, he looks cute. when #2 cut her hair, also twice, she did it down to the scalp, and it wasn't even correctable!

Oh Shell, if that makes you a bad Mom, I don't even want to know what I am. I left my kid unbuckled in his highchair and he fell out. Yeah, that is a bad mom:)

If it makes you feel any better, I think Bear looks super cute with his new hair cut!!

LOL. He still looks adorable. Maybe he has a calling, and is some kind of mini- barbering genius. My brother used to to try to open the sewer manhole in the woods near our house growing up- that's wayyyy more dangerous than some scissors!! You're an awesome mom!!

First of all, you aren't a mind reader. There's NO way that you would know your son would climb into the kitchen sink and get those shears. There's not a SINGLE parent who just walks around 24/7 watching their child. Maybe if it had happened while you were going to the bathroom instead of working on the computer you might not be judging yourself as harshly. Life happens, your kids WILL be kids, and you'll all get thru it with a few cuts and scrapes to show there's been a childhood in your home.

If someone gives you crap, you send them my way and I'll put them straight!

Blogger Aimee said...

You are most certainly NOT a horrible mom. It could be worse. Because my Mom and her brother were NOT allowed to use scissors when they wanted to play barber, they just did what kids do and found a way around it.....and set each other's hair on fire.

Or, you could be like me and leave a grill lighter (that you thought was broken) on the kitchen counter, only to have your 3-year-old find it, discover it is indeed NOT broken, and set your mother's house on fire.

My family seems to have bad luck with fire.

I'm sure you are far from being a bad mom. But, he does look cuter and cuter with each hair cut. I was expecting to see big chucks cut out of his hair! So, it's a blessing that all the hair cuts have been repairable. (And, I am still laughing.

Nobody who is a real mother to real live children would judge you for this. Crap happens and there's no way a human can watch them all at all moments. That's how accidents happen, and at least this was just a hair trauma! Give yourself a break, mama.

Well I sure hope no one is out there thinking you are a horrible mom. You are not.

Kids do these things and as you know, they will do them right in front of us before we have a chance to spring into action.

BTW, your Bear is so stinkin cute...he looks adorable no matter what hairstyle he is sporting.

Yea, Sorry - but thats NOT a mom fail. It just simply doesnt qualify. Its just hair. It will grow back.

And actually - I think it looks better! Really, he looks really cute.

We have all looked away for a minute. Don't be so hard on yourself. Just be relieved he is fine and looks cute as ever with the new haircut!

You know what? I think the short hair is adorable! Look at how much you can see his face- those shining eyes and that giant grin! Maybe he just wanted his face to show more!

I'm only laughing this hard because I can totally see it happening to me too. You're not a bad mom, you know that, you're awesome. Still...can't stop laughing.

Lots of yummy love,

Awwwwwww, okay I have to say... I think Bear looks absolutely adorable with his new haircut! Don't be so hard on yourself. We've all taken falls--and had bad haircuts--in life and we bounced back. If anyone is giving you a hard time for your mommying, send them my way so I can have a word with them. Not yet a mom, but I like to defend the best of them :) *HUGS*

Over the weekend I put all of the scissors on top of the refrigerator. My daughter was attempting very advanced box cutting. I told her she has to explain her project before getting scissors out. It's tough keeping them up high. They creep back out at least once a day.

He liked the first cut so much he wanted a second one.. but he thought if he asked you would just say "no". ;-)

Girl, it takes 5 minutes or less for crazier stuff to happen with little people around. No judging coming from this direction.

Glad no harm was done.

hee hee, all of us have done it. Think about it. I don't really know anyone without a child haircut story.

And for the kids, I think the new cuts are pretty cute...especially cubs, makes those beautiful eyes stand out.

At least it could be fixed! Jordan's is seriously unfixable. :)

And you weren't kidding when you said you knew how I felt!

WHY DO THEY DO THAT???

I had the scissors put up too. But my kids can get to anything if they want to badly enough.
