Why Does Boy Hair Grow so FAST???

It doesn't seem fair. When a girl has a really bad haircut, and wants her hair to grow out (this happened to me SEVERAL times during my tween and teen years) it seems to take forever.

But a boy? A week, and it's grown out enough. It's just not fair. AND, when you happen to have a household full of boys needing haircuts every two weeks, that is tedious too.

Thing Two stumbled downstairs for cereal this morning looking like the lead singer for A Flock Of Seagulls (circa 1983) and I knew it was time to take him to the salon. At least he got nearly three weeks out of his last haircut! I still haven't figured out how he sleeps so that his hair does that (wings on both sides). So we'll all have assembly line haircuts at Cost Cutters tomorrow.

We got about a foot of snow, but nothing too bad. I guess the weather people overreacted. Now I hear it's heading East. Have fun! Hopefully they won't get too slammed.

Well, I found out why I was soooooo tired lately. My Glucose test came back fine, but I was low on iron, so my Dr. called in an iron supplement. And now, my energy seems to have returned. I was never anemic with my other pregnancies, so this was a surprise. But it's nice to not feel like I want to sleep all day long!

I skipped the Oscars last night. We dvr'd it instead and caught up on all our CSI shows. We were up until nearly Midnight, but we're caught up now. (Hubby was traveling so we got a tad behind).

I have to work today, so I'd better get going. This is going to be a busy week. I have Family night tonight, a cub scout dinner tomorrow night, (that I will have to take the kids to without Hubby because the personal trainer comes to our house then), then Thing One is having a friend over for dinner Wednesday, and I'm attending a baby shower Thursday (not my own) and Friday, we're having a family over for pizza and a movie.

This is going to be a loooooong week.

I'm in wardrobe, not hair, but I work closely with hair dressers all the time, and I can tell you this much -- every four weeks is about the norm for a cut. Healthy hair will grow a bit faster, but when you go to a GOOD salon, they will cut it in a way that it grows out looking good for at least four weeks.

In other words, I'd say find a new salon. They're not doing the job they should.

The snow wasn't that bad here, but bad enough to keep me from house hunting all week.
