Every once and a while the kids do something that makes you laugh, smile, and cringe at the same time. That is exactly what happened to one mom from Texas recently. Stephanie Plucknette was getting ready for her night shift at the hospital where she works as a nurse when she went to check on her three kids who had been playing in the backyard. What she discovered was enough to cause her to burst into tears.
One of her sons had given himself, his brother, and his sister free haircuts courtesy of an electric razor he had found lying around outside.
Stephanie was completely shocked and at first, didn’t know how to react to the situation.
She immediately called her husband who, luckily, was able to calm her down over the phone. “It’s just hair,” he said. “It will grow back.”
Soon after, Stephanie decided to take a video of the kids showing off their new hair doos. Stephanie’s amazing reaction has the Internet praising her for perfect handling of the situation.
In the short clip, Stephanie can be seen shedding a few tears, but also smiling and laughing about what had just happened.
“I’m crying because, look,” Stephanie says.
The camera pans to two of her children who are now half bald with only a few random tufts of hair protruding from their little heads.
“Teddy got a hold of the buzz cutter…” Stephanie said. “Do you like your haircut?” she asked her young daughter while forcing a smile. “Why did you let brother do that?”
It turns out, Stephanie had been shaving the dog’s fur out in the backyard earlier and she made a big mistake. She accidentally forgot to put the electric razor away.
When the kids stumbled upon it while playing, they couldn’t resist giving each other haircuts with it. Unfortunately, the kids are not quite as talented as professional hairdressers.
Their new haircuts are both hilarious and a little sad at the same time.
You can’t help but feel for the mom and her three young kids. However, it’s the kind of situation you just have to smile about. It will certainly make for a good story later on in life, and it is likely everyone will be able to look back on that moment and laugh at how ridiculous the kids looked.
The video of the haircuts quickly went viral online and now the entire Internet is laughing at the unfortunate incident as well.
The family was even invited on Jimmy Kimmel afterward to discuss what went down. It’s the kind of story that all parents can empathize with. As anyone with kids knows, childhood is filled with all kinds of fun adventures as kids learn about the world around them and what is a good idea and what is a bad idea. Trying to cut your own hair falls under the bad idea category.
People can’t stop talking about how great of a mom Stephanie is too.
Everyone is universally praising her and her husband’s reaction. They didn’t get mad but instead did their best to calm everyone down and tell the kids that everything was going to be okay.
In the end, all three kids got fresh cool new buzzcuts, and in the final moments of the video, the two boys can be seen showing them off to the camera.
“How does my no-hair look?” the one boy asks his mom while smiling.
“It looks great,” Stephanie says, and we as viewers can’t help but smile too.
