A first time for everything

Miss. A has been asking for months when she was going to get a haircut like mom and dad. She has never had her hair cut at a barber shop and really the only time it was cut was when she was about six months old.


At that time we had to get rid of the mullet that was getting out of control. It's funny Miss. A has always had quite a bit of hair. I distinctly remember the ultra sound tech making a comment about the amount of hair she had and I was shocked, what did that mean.

So in the past two years we have not done anything to her golden locks except try to keep it brushed. Even that is a challenge at times and we often resort to putting it up. Well this weekend we were driving by our barber shop and decided to just see if Vinnie was in and had a quick opening. As luck would have it he was just finishing with a client and had some time.


Miss. A was all for the idea in the car but was a bit unsure once she crossed the threshold. We watched another person getting their hair cut for a few minutes just to see what it was all about. Once it was time to sit down I think it started to sink in for her and she needed me to stay close. The whole process took less then ten minutes and Vinnie only took a bit off the back.


By the end Miss. A was excited about the whole event and walked away wanting to go back for more. Who knows when that will be.

Oh, poor little Alena crying at the barber shop. (It's wrong that they're so cute with all the tears pooling up like that.) Glad you took the plunge. It is so worth it not to have to deal with the nightmare tangles!!!

She looks like she held it together better than her cousin does at home (I think a barber would put us all over the edge!). The lollipop is a great idea!!
