Celebrate

Huh. I thought there'd be a little more enthusiasm about that last post. I've been thinking about it forever and it sure took a while to put together. Figured what took me lots of hours and lots of money to learn would be some good free advice. But I guess I get it - not everyone is all jazzed about cutting their kids or their husbands hair. Just like I have no desire to make my kids clothes or knit or can food. Ok, I get that. At least it was helpful for a few, that's what matters.

Anyway, I think the nursing is officially over. To celebrate, I think I'm going to go take some vicodin and a muscle relaxer. :) I've missed you, guys. It's been a loooong time since I've been able to take much for pain. Over three years, actually. Wow, that's a long time I've been living as a host.

well done on the nursing for this long.

Also...loved the tips on cutting boys hair. I cut Lukes yesterday and now I wish I would of checked your blog sooner. He moves to much for me, so I cut it and then had to finish it today before he went to school. I have been cutting my boys and husbands hair since I married Darren, and just this year I found out how to hold the dang scissors. makes a big difference.
anyways thanks for sharing, Next time blog about little girls hair, so I know how to layer it better in the back, so it looks more stacked! loved the tips.

If I had boys, I would TOTALLY have watched the video.
I used to cut Ben's hair. Until a fade went dreadfully wrong. He came home from work several weeks later with a new hair cut. I was devestated. He cheated on me with the Italian Barber in Larchmont. Then he came crawling back after his torrid 7-month affair with the barber shop.
Don't worry...I didn't take him back.
It's Great Clips for life for Den Farlow.

p.s. could you do a tutorial on how to cut bangs on little girls. that would be much more applicable for me.
after all, it is a laura-centric universe these days!

I truly appreciated your post on cutting boys hair. I have been cutting my own boys hair for 13 years now and I am grateful that I can finally see how to do it right. I will follow the steps and let you know how it goes!
BTW, love reading your blog!

I am quite enthusiastic about your last post. I watched all the videos and am excited to try out the new tips on my boys. I think I'm fired from cutting Dave's hair because the last time he asked me to help him get the back of his neck cleaned up I wasn't listening and made a big stripe up the center of the back of his head so he had to shave it all super short. I thought it was funny but he was quite upset with me.
And congrats on nursing the twins for so long. It seems most people aren't even up for nursing one at time(I never understand that thinking-it was quite convenient for me and a great endorphin inducer and overall I"m a great mom cuz I'm makin em grow) so it's nice to hear from people who are successful with twins.

I thought not...but sometimes I am a little slow on the draw! I will take 2... in fact, I think we are headed to IUI and IVF..so its possible.

Your hair cutting lessons came 62 years late for me, Jen. I started cutting my husband's hair back in about 1946 when he was attending Stanford University Law School, and I had absolutely no instruction... but one comment. A fellow law school student exclaimed, "Looks like you stopped the barber just in time."

I just thought I would get into the blog and compliment you on how well the videos turned out. I listened to them all, and found I could even do two at a time (in error). Quite interesting.

But I got in here and found you were disappointed already.

Glad to see others enjoyed them as much as I did.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

When I get some time with the fast computer I'll get to watch! It is a little choppy on here...ha ha choppy...get it. :) But I don't get the lack of enthusiasm...am I missing something?

Oh ya and cheers to you for nursing that long and cheers for quitting. Jack won't take a bottle so I don't get what happens with him. Will he only take a bottle or cup when I quit. Ugg.

Jen I said...

Oh thanks. Now there's plenty of interest. Only 4 people had said anything after being up there a few days, so I'm glad to see other people found it interesting!

I think that for every comment you get, there are probably 3 or 4 (me included, unfortunately), that go unspoken. So when I saw your haircut post, I thought, "Wow! That is so cool! I can't wait until I have time to watch it. That must have taken a lot of time to put up and that was really cool of her." There you go. I used to cut Jan's hair but stopped a few years ago because it always took, like, an hour and was a big mess. Maybe after your tutorial I will be inspired to take it back up and save some money. Thanks!

Some of us just haven't had time to watch them yet. But I'm very excited about it. I only know how to do one haircut, and that's Tyler's. But I bet it took forever to upload all of those videos, not to mention taking the original footage and editing the video, etc. Good work, and THANK YOU!

Jen, I will be referring to this post after my son has hair. Right now, Sam cuts his own hair. I would like a tutorial on bang trims also!!

Good for you for nursing those twins for so long. :) Super Mommy!

I watched all the videos and they were great. I have been cutting everybody's hair since I have been married. I was glad to know that I was doing almost everything right. I like cutting hair. Although not all my kids like getting their haircut by me. But, I am not spending all our money on haircuts!! Just for my girl maybe. So thanks, it was helpful. I was just to lazy to comment last time.
