When kids are left to their own devices, the possibilities of what can go down are endless. Moms rarely get a moment to themselves when their children are young, but after some experience (say, after your third kid), they get the hang of it and start taking some liberties. Stephanie Plucknette, for example, figured she'd be safe taking a quick shower before heading to work.
Except...a pair of electric clippers were left out.
When Plucknette found her kids (Teddy, Eloise and Freddy), they had a lot less hair than before she showered.
Jimmy Kimmel caught up with the Plucknettes, all with various levels of shaved heads (though it seems Eloise is holding out until her patch grows back). Teddy seemed rather proud of himself, so maybe the kid has a future as a barber?
You can watch the full saga on Plucknette's Instagram account, where she has a highlight simply and appropriately titled "Buzzed." In the videos (which I highly recommend), sweet little Eloise asks, "Mommy, can you put more hair on my head?" as Plucknette's hand comes away with a clump of fine blonde tresses. It's nearly cinematic.
"It's just hair, it's hair and it's going to grow back and Mommy's OK," she tells the camera through her smiling tears.
At least the kids have brand new Mickey hats, courtesy of Kimmel, to accompany their new 'dos.
