Blake’s first haircut

There are these places that “specialize” in children’s haircuts. From what I can tell the only thing that differentiates them is the fact that they have buckets of not-been-sanitized-in-I-don’t-know-how-long baby toys that the hair-stylist holds up every few minutes with a half-hearted “oh, look at this one” when your baby is screaming bloody murder.

At first we thought it might go smoothly…

Nope. And why do we always resort to the lollipop? I’m mean she is cutting his hair for goodness sake…maybe it’s not the haircut that makes kids cry…maybe it’s the sucking on a hairy sucker part.

She is loving her job SO MUCH at this very moment.

    Oh my. The last one..even with all that is going on in the world made me laugh out loud. As if Blake is thinking, “Lady, you made my hair look so lame by parting it that way!!” “Don’t you understand, I have a look I’m going for, it’s taken me my whole life to achieve.. and you just totally ruined it!!!.” “A Hairy sucker is supposed to make me feel better about this!?”

    Great pictures! At my salons, we have DVDs and video games at every station to help distract the children so they stay happy and still. Next time, try bringing a toy from home–or maybe a portable DVD player. He can also get his hair cut while sitting on your lap if that helps. Hopefully his next haircut will be less traumatic.
