Hair is scary

Yesterday afternoon sucked ass. It was awful. Both kids woke up from their naps in a cranky, sour mood. To break up the fussiness, the kids and I went to the craft store to buy some yarn, scrapbooking stickers, and picture frames. Porgie was a tyrant, and whined during the majority of the trip. On the drive home, I decided to stop at the park. I took Porgie out of her carseat, and she quickly ran toward the slides. Before I even had Izzy in the stroller, she had already climbed to the top of the jungle gym. She zipped down the slide and landed in a puddle of water. Ugh. I didn't have any spare clothes in the diaper bag, and she was soaking wet. I decided to let her play for a few more minutes while I attempted to feed Izzy a bottle. But Porgie kept whining about her wet clothes, so I decided to forgo the bottle. I sat Izzy up in the stroller, and he promptly spit-up all over his clothes. So, I had two babies in nasty, wet clothing. It was definitely time to go home.

When we arrived home, John was in the bathroom. I undressed both babies, and started making Porgie's dinner. John walked out of the bathroom sporting a new haircut. Porgie FLIPPED OUT. Hot tears and snot were streaming down her face. She kept screaming, "MAMA MAMA MAMA," as she frantically climbed into my arms. Izzy, sensing all of the fear, started screaming too. So, I had two frightened children sobbing and desperately clinging to me. John actually had to leave the room for about an hour. I had to feed both kids dinner by myself, while John sat in the bedroom.

Therefore, I have declared that John is no longer allowed to get a haircut. That seems completely reasonable, right?


P.S. My stalker never revealed him/herself. DARN! A few people delurked, which was awesome, but the person who lives 20 minutes away from me decided to stay quiet. But, I am over it. I think I am going to stop looking at my site meter. I can't honestly expect all people in the state of NJ to not read my blog. So, whatever.

Was it a drastic hair cut? That made me laugh though :) I guess hair is scary!

Greg said...

Do you think it is a 2 year old thing that they don't like to be wet unless in their swimsuit? If Ellie gets wet while wearing normal clothes, she flips out.

Hope you have a better day today.

Sorry to hear about your stalker. Maybe it's family and they don't want to admit they found you?

Mama Kalila said...

I'm sorry but I laughed at the scared of hair thing... of course I guess I'm mean like that... The other day I was getting ready for the reunion (messing around w/ makeup to see how to do my eyes) and put on the niqab to see how it'd look... at first Kalila was smiling at me and then her face slowly drooped, lip quivering, you could just see the 'where did mommy go'look. I know I scared her, but it was so hard not to laugh!

Sorry about the whining and stuff though... Sounds like a rough day all the way around.

Dana said...

Hi! Cakerwaky and the Cakerwakers are my next victims - um, I mean, destination - for the Lonely Blogosphere post at All Mediocre. I had so much fun reading your site. It is lovely, really! Your babies are adorable.

It should post at midnight tonight. Hope you have a lot of visitors. - Stacey

I remember vividly when my dad shaved his 1980's porn moustache. I just stared at him. I never knew he had a top lip. I was older than your babies but I can imagine their terror.

Robin said...

That does sound like a no good horrible very bad day - in other words, yeah, that must've really sucked.

I knew a little boy once who freaked out utterly and completely when his dad shaved his beard - didn't recognize him at all!

Rachel said...

My sister used to do that to my step father with a new haircut. It would freak her out so much when she was little. Poor Porgie.

Oh wet babies stink. I used to carry a change of clothes in the car-maybe I will start again after hearing your story.

Sour moods stink for babies and momma.

Yeah no more stalker and NO more looking at the meter. HUGS Christy!

Maura said...

Visiting from AM -- great reading! But I think your "stalker" did reveal herself further down in the comments from your previous post. Funny how small the world can be, isn't it? I enjoy looking at my site meter to see where people are visiting from and how they got there.
