Big Boy Hair Cut {Finer Things Friday}

The barber across the street is quite familiar with our family, especially with our 5 year old girl.  No, she doesn’t get her hair cut there, but she visits Mr. M  every. single. week.  (He’s only here on Wednesdays.)

Yesterday when I took our 2 year old for his first cut (grandma usually cuts it) I was told all about how my girl, when there are no customers, sits in the chair, sprays her hair with the squirt bottle, styles it, has Mr. M braid it, and eats suckers.  She sweeps the floor and talks the leg off of anyone who walks in the door.  I’d be leery of what she’s learning at the barber shop, but really, I’m a little more concerned about what stories she’s telling!

Oh my.

Mr. Serious sat still, clearly nervous about the scissors whizzing overhead, the promise of a sucker more appealing than the prospect of bolting from the chair.  But just barely.

Victory!  And clean, crisp new do.  I love that boy.

Visiting the local barber across the street, whether for a hair cut, a sucker, or a chatty spin in the chair?  That’s a Finer Thing in my book.  What Finer Things are you celebrating this week?  Link up and let us know!

  1. Isn’t it amazing how something as small as a haircut can be such a big thing? They grow up so quickly, I try to slow down and treasure each moment, even the crazy hectic ones!

  2. What a cutie! I’m celebrating our love for my kids’ teachers… My 6 year old apparently raised his hand during story time and told his teacher he loved her!! How cute is that. What a blessing to have fabulous teachers! Have a great weekend.

  3. Such a cute boy!

  4. I left a link about having full hands–I’m sure you’ve been stopped by someone who has said, oh, wow, your hands are full! (Meaning the kiddos, of course). So this is my little reaction to hearing it all. the. time.

  5. very handsome little guy 🙂

  6. What great memories your daughter will have one day. (Now too, but down the road–to look back and remember those times with Mr. M–wow!) What a blessing to have such wonderful influences for your children’s lives.

  7. I had to laugh last night when we were signing our refinance documents at our dining room table, my 3-year-old daughter was talking the ear off the notary. When I left the room at one point, I came back to hear her telling him how her 1 1/2-year-old brother kicks her all the time, and she tells him “no!”. She’s a trip! 🙂

  8. Our oldest son had surgery yesterday to remove hardware from a football injury he sustained last fall, during his 8th grade season. After getting him home and settled last night, people started calling to check on him and several wanted to speak with him themselves. He politely and purposefully asked each of them how their day was, despite being barely able to keep his eyes open or speak due to a dry throat and I can only imagine how foggy his mind felt from the pain meds!

    Having your kids show good manners when you least expect it is a wonderful, good, fine thing!

  9. Super cute cut!

  10. I love hearing stories about your 5 year old because where else but in a small town can a 5 year old and previously 4 and 3 year old visit all her neighbors and go across the street by herself to bring smiles to those around her? I know she makes my 83 year old dad feel special whether he would ever say it or not. There are more 7th graders in the school I teach at than there are people back home so I love telling my students stories. Small towns are a finer thing…

    • Oh, the stories that I could tell! One of my favorites is when one of your BROTHERS came over to our yard on Easter morning. EASTER morning. “Are you missing a kid?” Yep. She had gone over to “visit Mr. R” with company there and everything. You just never know… (He had a good laugh.)
