Ha! It looks like you may need to cut down the headband on those ear muffs too!

Congrats on your parenting skills. My sons worked with me too. And it's really paying off for me too. Now in my later years they still come around for projects. The latest project was a custom subwoofer box. The grandkids want to build things as well.
Doing things together builds relationships.

The trimmer was too long so I took it apart cut the tube and shaft down to fit him and installed an edgit or what we call the Chinese head so that it's like his mom's trimmer.

It's funny seeing him change from a video game playing / book nerd to a confident young man. It has toughened him up some which he needed. I love the talks we share from job to job and I always remind him that he can be anything that he sets his heart to. We are doing our part to raise a hard working well rounded human being.
That sir is fantastic!!! Good job dad.
