The haircut joke


It's an overused joke, and not very funny:

Person A: I'm getting a haircut today.
Person B: Oh really? Why don't you get them all cut while you're at it.

But Cayman actually needs a. hair. cut.

There is just this one hair that has been growing since he was a baby. The others have all fallen out or been replaced and are mostly uniform in their length. But this one stubborn hair held on. It is just above his ear, and it is going on 4 inches long. Even though it looks odd if you get a glimpse of it, and more than one person has pointed out "the piece of hair that needs to be cut", I can't bring myself to cut it. It tells the story of his whole short life up to this point. Starts out dark (he was born a clone of Cairo--same hairline and haircolor) then all of a sudden the hair goes very blonde. This is when Cayman's look pulled a fast one on us and changed from looking like a stamp of the boys to looking like a stamp of Windsyr. Next the hair settles in on a sort of light golden color, the way it currently looks. See? A story. And I just can't bring myself to end it.

So Cayman remains one small snip away from a balanced do, I remain ridiculously sentimental, and the haircut joke remains kind of dumb, though I can't help but laugh at the fact that my baby needs "a" hair cut.

Any other dumb jokes my kids can bring to life for you?

Cayman looks exactly like your baby picture, Amy!

Here's another hair joke for you...


Where do sheep get their hair cut?


At the bah-bah shop!

Sorry, I had to redo this post because it was posting chronologically and I had started it back in November. That deleted Mandee and Kirbell's comments, so I had to paste them in again. Not quite as authentic, but certainly wouldn't want you to miss the sheep joke!!

but he is too cute!

I hear you. Lauren had a solitary hair strand that stayed around too. It was right smack in the middle of her head on top. I loved it. Being that she was born practically bald in front, it was the only hope I had she would eventually get more hair on top. I say leave it.

also...I think if you click on "post options" under the text box where you type your post, you can change the date and time of a post and it should keep all the comments with it. I only know that because I've done the same thing myself. :)

hey I found you and your amazing writing skills! ha ha!

Ok our baby had the same one long hair he'd been growing and I didn't want to cut it off either. Then one random day my husband was looking at it and just yanked it out! Poof like that it was gone.

Hold onto it as long as you can.
