Other things we've been up to? Grooming and growing out Luke's rat tail. I wanted to grow it out long enough to braid it, but finally had enough one day. It started out as a joke. I took Luke over to a friend's house for a haircut and she asked me sarcastically if I wanted her to leave a rat tail and I said, "definitely". I knew HF wouldn't be thrilled, and well, that's why I do these sort of things. I gotta get my kicks somehow, even at the expense of my own children, you know? I was right, he wasn't thrilled and wanted me to cut it off immediately, but I said we couldn't cut it until we at least took a picture. Well, we didn't get around to taking a picture for quite some time. I suspected we were that family at the park that parents wanted to keep their kids away because we all know about kids with rat tails, right? They are probably going to be the kid that pushes you off the slide, throws rocks at you, and punches you in the gut. You know you've pre-judged kids with rat tails. And besides, rat tails are not in style anymore. They haven't been for awhile.
