A mother of Upstate New York has gone viral after sharing a hilarious story for parents online.
A viral video shows a five-year-old boy named Teddy who cut his brothers' hair and shaved his head with a buzz cutter while his mother, Stephanie Plucknette, was in the shower. She filmed her shock reaction and posted it on Instagram, where it was copied and shared again in several places to get more than 50 million visits in total.
"It's just hair," he said tearfully to his children as he assured them they would grow back.
According to Democrat & Chronicle, Stephanie and her husband Ben Plucknette are Rochester natives who met in high school. He graduated from the Nazareth Academy and the University of Rochester and graduated from Spencerport High School.
The couple got married in Rochester in 2012 and now lives in San Antonio, Texas, where Stephanie, 33, works as a nurse and Ben is in the US Air Force. UU They have three children: Teddy, 5, Eloise, 3 and Fred, 2.
"Do you like your haircut?" Stephanie asks Eloise in the video.
"No," the young girl replied adorably.
Stephanie told D & C what happened when she forgot that she had left the mowers after shaving the dog before.
"I did about 100 more things in the day and then I took a short shower," he told the newspaper. "I had gone, literally, eight minutes." I went out and Teddy held the shaver and said, "Mom, look what I did."
The five of the Plucknettes appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" On tuesday night; Teddy and Fred shaved the rest of their hair to look like their father, while Eloise still has a blonde fringe on the front (and a big bald on the back).
Jimmy Kimmel asked Teddy if it was fun to cut their hair ("yes!") And if he would do it again.
"No," Teddy said as the audience laughed.
"Why not?" Kimmel asked.
"Because my mom told me not to do it."
Kimmel later surprised the family with a free trip to Disneyland.
