Why Did I Think This was a Good Idea?

Last Saturday night, I suddenly decided I was a skillful hairstylist. So, I propped Will up in his bumbo seat and cut a straight line across the back of his hair. I thought it was straight, but after further examination I realized it was a big mistake. I just wanted to get rid of his rattail, but instead I made him look like Lloyd Christmas.

What surprised me the most about this experience is that I was unable to toss the hair in the trash. How can I say goodbye to such delicate locks? I always thought my sister-in-law was crazy for keeping her son’s umbilical cord, but now… I guess I can relate.
