The Rainbow Loom Fever

Have you all heard of Rainbow Loom? Well, if you have grade school aged kids, unless you’re living under a rock, you have.

For those of you who haven’t, let me break it down for you; it’s a set that comes with a plastic loom, a crochet type, plastic hook and about a million and one little, tiny elastics to be woven together to make jewelry etc.

It has become so popular that even Jimmy Kimmel is talking about it; asking parents to send in their children’s creations for his “loom suit”.  Ha.

Anyway, the Rainbow Loom fever is definitely running rampant in our house and I have a wrist full of bracelets, carefully crafted by my kids (and admittedly, one by me) to show for it.  The best part is, they’re actually really cool as far as kiddie crafted jewelry goes; the downside, I fear that I will be picking up little elastics for the next five years.  Oh well…  At least it keeps ’em quiet!

The Undercut Strikes Again

So, in a post from a while back, “The Undercut Cannot Be Undersold” I showed all of you my three-year-old son’s new haircut, and mentioned that my 13-year-old wanted the same cut too.

Well, he did it and I just can’t believe this young man with the trendy haircut, hint of a mustache and size 11 men’s feet was once my cuddly baby boy.  Time sure flies.

Besides all of my nostalgic ramblings, I do have to say that I am completely sold on this dapper, sophisticated haircut even more so than I was in the past.  I truly do believe that it has the potential to be flattering on any man with enough hair for it.

Now it’s time to convince my 7-year-old son to get this cut as well, and I will be a very happy mama!

So, according to a Huffington Post article I read this fall, the undercut is the haircut that all men should have; and after seeing the eye candy distributed throughout the article, I wholeheartedly agree.

That debonair, vintage, long on top, short on the bottom haircut was rebellious in the 90’s and is now a modern, 40’s inspired classic, and it has really gotten my attention; so much so, that I decided that it would be my youngest son’s first.

I can’t even. It’s so perfect. See for yourselves! Even my oldest son has decided this will be his next cut! (Pics to follow?)
