Only THIS much...

Giggling at my friend, Nicole's recent post about her adorable three year old's self style, I decided to share Matteo's newest do-it-yourself 'do he did last week...

I only cut THIS much

Ivan was with him in the kitchen, but had his back turned ("It was ONLY for a minute, I SWEAR!") and Matteo decided to cut his hair while standing over the trash bin. What absolutely pains me is that Matteo had mentioned earlier in the week that he wanted to get a haircut, but I thought it was just because he wanted to visit the train table where he gets his hair cut. Since I obviously wasn't paying attention, he decided to take matters into his own hands. The only way to even it out is to give him a super short buzz cut- which I don't really want to do- so we're going to let it grow for a few weeks... while supervising a little bit better when scissors are present...sigh

So my been-there-done-that friends, what other 3-4 year old rites of passage are we in for :) ?

My friends' son cut his younger sisters hair. Very Short.

I think Matteo did a very nice job! Still as cute as ever.

As I read your blog, I realize that my children must be rascals indeed. I wrote on Nicole's blog about how Short Pants recently cut Pita Pocket's hair. When I read yours, I could only remember the time when my daughter Bean mentioned wanting to pluck her eyebrows (at the age of 9, which I thought too young). The next weekend she shaved part of one of them off. Oh, and some of her arm hair as well.

Word to the wise - hide the scissors AND the razors.

Too funny!...Noali cut his own hair once...Luckily it wasn't too much taken off...

Good thing Matteo didn't cut your hair :-)...When my mom was a girl her sister cut a chunk of my granny's hair off while she was sleeping...And it was past her butt before the cut!

Which reminds me...I really need to quit telling W that if I can't detangle his curls I'll have to cut his hair! He's been talking about cutting hair lately.

But everyone's right. He did a great job for his first try! :)
