Dreaded Hair Cuts

I was avoiding getting a hair cut for my son. But it was growing up and it really looked bad. Now I will stand by this when I say it, due to my really bad heartburn, he was born with a full set of hair. I mean, he needed a hair cut since he was born. (picture on the right)

At 5 months, we decided to give him his first haircut. He was a real angel. He just sat there taking it all in.

This was one of those moments that I was very proud of him. Ok now to the point of my post. This time around I wasnt as lucky. First of all, I saw the barber give me the receptionist the look of "oh no" He did not look happy that he was going to cut my sons hair. That in itself had me all nervous. Second, I didnt know if my son was going to be as patient as he was the first time. Well I got my answer as soon as he tries to touch his head. He kept trying to look at the barber with a look on his face that I can only imagine was of confusion as to why this man was holding scissors to his head. He was squirmy the whole time. Finally, I decided to jut hold his head and chin so that he wouldnt be able to move. Thats when the crying started. What made it worse was that the barber was not friendly at all, no calming words of encouragement for me or my son..which I thought I needed them more lol. In the end, my son looked really cute and it only cost me $10 and I still gave the man a tip. Now, well see until our next visit.

Unfriendly Barbers never help the situation. Do you guys have a cookie cutters in your area? They are awesome, they put the kids in little fire engine seats and they get a balloon and watch movies while they get their haircut. So much better for kids!
