Ulysses is Shorn

This picture was taken of Ulysses at least 6 weeks ago. His hair is really getting long.

The weather is cold and rainy here today and the girls were looking for a project. They decided that cutting Ulysses hair would be fun. They convinced him (bribed him with candy) to let them do it and then asked Dad's permission.

Before lunch they got out the clippers and the scissors. Brooke took the scissors and Michelle used the clippers and they went to work. Ulysses sat there like a king on his throne and commanded more treats. They had to pay HIM to let them cut his hair.

They both worked simultaneously.

They clipped and they chopped. He fussed a little but was pretty tolerant of all this activity on his head.

Elizabeth had the job of keeping him fed. She held the bowl of popcorn and periodically one of the older girls gave him a tiny piece of a candy cane. When he was totally and literally fed up, I came in and did a little straightening. Overall it was pretty good.

What do you think? Doesn't he look more like a 4 year old boy now? I think he was pretty pleased with himself.
We will have to file this classroom experience under home ec and economics.
Life at the 'Mengo Academy' or as the boys call it 'Stalag 17'.
PS. Yes, the girls did clean up when they were done.
