Ephraim got his first haircut yesterday. Brooke picked out the faux hawk and thought I wouldn't go through with it, but I did. I'm always a bit sad after that first haircut because my baby boys look so grown up afterwards. I had asked the beautician to not cut too much hair because I wanted him to keep some of his baby look for a little longer, but after she swished through the side of his hair with the clippers, it was too late to look back. Brooke went in Wal*Mart afterwards, bought some hair putty, and showed me how to use it. I can't believe I'm stylin' my baby boy's hair!
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
