Jonathan The Rebel.....
Jonathan as the REBEL
On Friday to give Jonathan a break from me.....or maybe the other way around, he went to the store for the day. I told Elizabeth to cut his hair while he was there. I have been cutting the boys hair for the last few years. It saves us LOTS of money. We were paying $12 for each boy every 5 to 6 weeks, and that adds up fast. So, since we own the same type clippers(from grooming) we decided to do it ourselves. The nice part is I take them down to the store and do it there, with little clean up involved since that's what we do....well with dogs. If your wondering YES they sit on the grooming tables for their cuts. We wash their hair and dry it and were on our way. Sounds simple, funny thing is I ALWAYS dread haircut days....yet it only takes about a hour to cut all 5 boys hair. Well, last week I taught Elizabeth to cut their hair. She cut James' hair on Monday, Madison's hair on Wednesday and it looked really nice. Then came Friday and she cut Jonathan's hair!!!!!!! When they got home and Jonathan came to show me his hair I wondered what she did with my sweet boy I had a....REBEL for a son! Elizabeth gave him a Mohawk, he loved it! I wasn't any to happy, I said "he already gets looks he doesn't need anymore attention drawn to him". He wasn't happy when I said he had to get it cut off. Later that night at the 8pm potty walk for the dogs Elizabeth took Jonathan and cut it off. He was OK with it being cut. I wish you could have seen him, he thought he was so COOL. I have to admit it brought out a different side of him.....he did look cute!
I'm thankful that Elizabeth can now cut the boys hair. This is just one more thing that helps me out and another skill she has mastered. She did a great job on their hair ...ever Jonathan's unique style. One day when she has a family of her own she'll be able to save them some money on haircuts too.
For those of you who don't know we own a grooming, boarding, and doggie daycare. There is a little irony here.....we make a living off dog haircuts, yet we don't want to pay for haircuts for ourselves. We are sooooooo very THANKFUL that we have many dogs to groom.....to feed our family!
