I mean I plugged in my razor with a long extension cord, selected a close but not too close trim setting, and then I chased them around the living room, trying to buzz off a little hair without hitting them in the head with it, dropping hair all over the room. It creates a great mental picture doesn't it? That wasn't working too well, so Mark wrapped his arms around them and held them tight like little mummies so I could get at their heads. The razor does a good job but there's still some hair behind the ears and at the neckline I can't get, so I have to use actual scissors for that. AJ was somewhat cooperative for that but Zack was having nothing to do with the scissors, so we waited a day or so and then I laid him flat on his belly, held his head on the floor nice and still, and trimmed that long hair around his ears. He didn't love it, but he has a crisp looking haircut now. It's not like I can go pro or anything, but it's better than the mullets they were sporting. Here's the after picture -- a day or so after:
From a distance, not too bad.....
I had to laugh at the mental image of you running around with a clippers on an extension cord. Sounds like the chaos at my house. I've never braved cutting their hair, though. Looks like you did a great job.
