We don’t get a ton of rain here in Southern California, so when it rains for a full week without let up, it’s a BIG deal. It rained like that this past winter and the twins literally went wild. They didn’t know what to do with themselves being cooped up for a week and they started getting into all sorts of trouble.
- Cutting each other’s hair.
- Painting on my brand new jeans.
- Getting into stuff they knew was off-limits….
You get the picture. They didn’t get into as much trouble (as a consequence) as they normally would have because I understood. I was going stir crazy too. I know that a week in-doors doesn’t seem like much to many of you, but it was a big deal to us since we spend most of our days outside year round.
Sometimes, whether it’s raining out or not, Jeff and I get bored too. And I get him to do juvenile things to make me laugh. Like giving the boys haircuts. Bowl cuts, mullets, skater dos, you name it. Yesterday Jeff wielded the clippers and scissors and provided me with a fiesta of fun.
We told him what a cool hair cut he had. Like, super cool. The kid was so excited with his new do. Seriously. BEAMING. The best part? His brother/twin wanted his hair cut the exactly the same way. I tried to get Jeff to take him out in public like this. Just once. I used all of my persuasive powers, but he refused.
We had our laughs, and now he looks like this:
