I don't think I did!!
As you know I cut Ollie's hair myself a few weeks ago. Well it was starting to go fuzzy again so I set him down and got out the clippers. The clippers we have have guides with numbers... you know, a number 3, a number 1 etc. Well I couldn't find the guide I had used the last time (it had a little button that you press and it popped off the clippers easily), but there was a similar guide, the only difference being that it had no little button. I checked the number and went ahead with my cutting.
The first glide over his head and I was nearly sick! It was far far too short! What happened?! I checked the guide again and then looked at the numbers on the rest of the guides in the set. I realised my massive (but easily made) mistake. The number I was looking at was '3mm'. Not a 'number 3', which I had used the last time. After a bit of a search through the bag I found a guide that said "number 1 (3mm)". I felt so awful!!! I had no choice but to cut the rest of it or it would have looked ridiculous.
James was having a lie-in at the time so I took Ollie upsairs to give him a bath. As I was running the bath I audibly said "Ollie, you have to tell daddy not to be cross at mummy and tell him it was a mistake." James didn't mind. (James normally cuts his hair to a 'number 1' anyway) But I was so upset. I kept apologising to Ollie.
It was too raw and upsetting for me to post pictures a few weeks ago, but now that it is growing back, I think I would feel ok with you all seeing my bad mummy moment!!
