Bad Hair Day

My son has undertaken a bit of self-barbering. He did this on a dare from his best buddy, Nathan, whose parents are both Lutheran pastors. I'm not saying Lutheran theology necessarily had anything to do with this blatant manipulation of a young Calvinist's insecurities--I'm just laying out the facts. You can judge for yourself.

Last week while I was driving these boys to daycamp, my son asked what the difference was between Lutherans and Presbyterians. I said they were very alike in many ways, but they had some differences based on the beliefs of two men named Martin Luther and John Calvin. I was busy trying to work out how I would interpret those beliefs in second-grader language when Nathan interrupted.

"The difference between my church and yours is that our sanctuary is MUCH bigger!" Six days later the hair thing. Coincidence???? You tell me.

I suppose he's too young to be told that Size Isn't Everything.

Maybe Nathan told him to "sin boldly.";-)

Update--my husband took the little sinner to the real barber this morning to repair the damage. Now he looks like a Marine recruit.

My son cut his hair one day, and then went to the barber for a repair. "What happened to you," the barber asked.

Without batting an eye, my son said, "My Dad gave me a haircut."
