Where’s it all gone Mum?

It was Oliver’s second trip to the Barbers today and as his hair was getting very long it was in need of a good cut. He has his hair cut before but that time it was just a shape up cut this time he got a real cut!

His hair was getting quite long and even though I adored his hair with a bit of length to it he really needed quite a hit cutting off, every day his hair was getting matted and I was unable to get a brush through it with out him screaming the house down shouting ‘ouch! ouch!’ His hair was unmanageable and need straightening up.


I was a bit apprehensive at first to go for the full chop as he uses his hair as a comforter, twiddling his hands around strands of his hair to get himself to sleep or when he is upset but in order for his hair to get thick it needed to be cut. His hair is still fluffy like it was when he was a baby and he as he is nearly 2 he was in deed ready for a big boys cut.



He still has a bit of length to it so he can still get his little finger twiddling around some of it!

So what does Oliver think of it? Well he went straight for my hair for a Little play as soon as it was cut off and he sat in his buggy on the way home with his head to one side sulking so I’m not he was happy at first but I think he’s getting used to it now. Every time I say haircut to him he looks up at me with a cheesy grin πŸ™‚

His haircut has changed his look, he no longer looks like a baby no more, now he looks like a grown up boy!


The funny things they say and do

Children say and do the funniest things ad my boys are no exception. They do make me laugh sometimes with the stories they tell each other or the words they come out with which are most of the time made up and only have meaning to themselves.

The other day Joseph got out of the pool and even though the water was warm it was quite a windy day so as soon as he got to the top of the ladder the wind hit him and made him all cold, he ran to the back door and I wrapped a towel around him. He came indoors and asked me to make him a nice hot chocolate to warm him up and to put the escalator on! Escalator? I think he meant radiator…

I took the boys for a haircut just before they started school, it always takes me forever to get Joseph’s haircut as he likes his curls. At the barbers, whilst we was waiting he was watching the barber shave a mans head, he looked at me all sad and said
” I don’t want my hair cut!”
Me : “Its ok Joseph the man will only trim it up and make it so you can see as your hair is now growing over your eyes”
Joseph: “Can I still keep my fishtail?”
Me: “Fishtail??”
Joseph: “Yes! The bit at the front of my head that looks like a fishes tail”


Can you see what he is talking about? πŸ™‚

We was talking about the boys new teachers that they have in school and Joseph that he didn’t like his new teacher because she is mean, I asked him why he thought that his teacher was mean and he replied that she makes the children in the classroom do work! Could you imagine sending your child to school to do some work! What ever next! Lol

Jak has been doing a few days filming for a BBC Drama and he was talking about what he was earning for doing it, I told him how much and he said it doesn’t matter that it was a small amount as it all counts to his savings for him going To Cambridge University.

We was all waiting at a train station platform when there was a group of men stood nearby waiting for the same train, they were all spruced up and obviously on their way out for a night on the town. When the train pulled up we all got into the same carriage, it was pretty empty with only a few other people on there with us. Joseph sat down and shouted really loudly
“Mum, What’s that smell?”
He was sniffing away and looking around the train at the other people.
I looked at him and told him to be quiet
“What smell Joseph?”
“It’s coming from over there!”
Joseph was pointing at the group of men…
I whispered to Joseph that it was rude to point and tried to change the subject by talking to him about where we was going.
I knew what he was smelling, It was the men’s Aftershave…. Haha!

What have your children been saying or doing this week that has made you chuckle?
