sam came home tonight & i had pork chops thawing in the fridge ready for a lovely little meal for this family. but it just wasn't one of those cook a nice meal & sit down as a family to eat dinner kinda nights. it was gorgeous out & we were feeling restless. do you have those nights? i had plenty of errands that needed running & it's always easier to do 'em with sam. item number one? haircuts for scraggly haired little boys.
i'd been putting off haircuts for these guys for months. not for a lack of needing 'em though. elliot has double cowlicks & has always had crazy hair. it does what it wants. parker's hair is super fine & straight & makes for a pretty sweet mullet. despite the need for new 'do's, i was dreading getting them done because my boys are historically pretty resistant to anything hair/head related.
anywho, you can see below that the need was great. and it went about as smoothly with elliot as we had expected, ie: screaming, crying, red-faced resistance. but parker was an old pro! nothing a little distraction with the iPad & a sucker couldn't cure. obviously it was my job to document it all.
^^were those duck lips? pretty sure those were duck lips.
also, catching fire just ended & i pretty much hated it. i really didn't get attached to any of the characters like you do in the book but i guess that's to be expected in the adaptation to screen. is it weird to love the way the hunger games series makes your heart hurt, though? it makes me sick to think about a world where all this stuff would happen but at the same time the emotion is so raw & desperate & i can't help but be sucked in.
and last? i just watched the video for "midnight" by coldplay & there's a greater chance i'll have nightmares about that than hunger games. weird!
