Cheap clips??

Does anybody out there know what it's like to do a marathon hair cutting session with 4 (soon to be 5 once Simon needs a haircut...I've been putting it off!) boys/man that need haircuts all at once? Picture if you will a freshly washed floor that I was hoping would last at least for 2 or 3 days and then it happens...."honey, do you think I could get a hair cut today?"....then Son #1 "Mommy I need a hair cut too!"...then Son #2 "Mommy I really need a haircut too and please don't cut it like Troy from High School Musical cause I really don't like my hair tickling my eyes and it's not appropriate for school!"...then son #3 "Mommy my hair is really long too and it tickles my ears can I go before Gavin?"

And then the mayhem begins, trying to keep the 16 month old out of the hair that's piling up without success, having little particles of hair that have now become needles poking into my shirt and pants (and I've already showered!), trying to keep heads steady, making sure my husbands is PERFECT he is quite a stickler...despite the fact that his increasingly grey hairs have a mind of their own, and of course I am left with all the hairy clean up and suddenly my clean, sparkling floor is no more. To any woman out there that knows my plight my heart goes out to you. But when I think of the thousands that I've saved us...well, I'll be doing it again in a couple weeks.

And I thought I had it bad with one man's hair to cut. I never thought about kids' hair.
And luckily with four girls, there isn't much hair cutting done around here.
I hate the poky pieces of hair that get everywhere too.
