What do I do when my kid asks me for a summer haircut?

I throw on his panda-print barber cape and grab the clippers.

It’s Mother’s Day, but that doesn’t mean I relinquish my parenting for mimosas and manicures. I want to spend as much time with the kids as I can. In fact, the whole family is anxious for SUMMER, (it’s already 90°F(32°C) for heaven's sake), — but the kids have two weeks of school left! Ugh!
