Monday Musings

A few musings inspired by my weekend:

I was a few pounds down and then I went away for the weekend. I didn't eat much (or so I thought) but, apparently, snickers aren't low cal.

My husband decided to cut the boys' hair this weekend. He called me to get my thoughts (read that as, to hear my reaction) on him shaving my oldest son's head bald. I said something to this effect, Um, it may look cool in the Avatar movie... but you cannot do that while I'm away.

This is what my 9 year old wanted:

This is what he got:

Wow, now that I look at those two pictures, he might make a good Aang. Maybe he should I let him go bald and sport an arrow to see the movie. Hmm...

This sign

means:
You are about to see beautiful scenery and be sore for three days.

It doesn't matter how much you try to prepare yourself, nothing will provide an easy transition from this

to this

SO funny about your hubby and son scheming to get away with an Aang hairdo while you were gone! Gosh, and now I'm not so sure we'll go see the movie 'cause my boys will surely want to cut all their hair off and paint an arrow on their heads!!! ;)

Brandi, they need to make sure to see one or more of the cartoons BEFORE they see the movie. That way they can choose to shave it bald like Aang, or have it all shaved except with the top long like a to ponytail Ike Sokka. You'll love it either way! And Janey... Welcome home. We missed you! I especially missed you changing diapers.

LOL about the diaper!

And yes...he should go see Airbender now!

... A cartoon or two??? (hee, hee) Seth, we have seen them ALL. ;) We had family 'Avatar' night for years. I think the hubby and I looked forward to it as much as the boys. LOL! It's totally different when you see a cartoon 'in skin,' though (that's what my 5yo calls it when an animated show is made into a movie). As soon as they see Aang as a 'real' boy, they will surely want the hair (or lack thereof). I guess y'all have seen the movie? Was it good?

The hair cut is cute not sure about the arrow though. Maybe a hair arrow:)

Seth said...

Brandi, we haven't seen it either. I hate to admit it, but I was completely addicted to the cartoon before my kids saw their first episode. I had powered my way through season one before introducing the, to it about a month ago. This past Friday we watched the final episode of the show. They cannot wait to see the movie.

What a gift you received to have a weekend away! And that you didn't come home to an arrow-headed boy!

You crack me up! What a pictoral to show the raw differences between a relaxing weekend and reality!
