Ever try to cut a twenty-one-month old’s hair?
It took four of us to do it. My dad and Mrs. Sayuri distracted him so that he didn’t mind my snipping his curly locks. Hubby did some helping too, when he wasn’t snapping photos for me.
Now, I am no professional by any means. I am just a mom that cuts her family’s hair – mainly because I haven’t found anyone in Costa Rica who cuts hair the way I like.
When I initially made the first cut, I panicked for a minute, but then I realized that at that point there really was no turning back. I might as well just forge ahead and make the best of it. In the end I was happy with the way it turned out, but let’s just say it looked a little rough around the edges in the beginning. 🙂
He behaved wonderfully though.
I think he may have actually enjoyed it.
My mom cut my little brother’s hair (more like trimmed his hair) for the first time when he was two. He didn’t have nearly as much hair as Mr. Happy Feet.
I had intentions of waiting until his second birthday, but I broke down. I was getting tired of hearing people accidentally refer to him as a girl saying “Oh, SHE’s so cute!”. Eesh. Awkward!
It was kind of a spur of the moment thing. We were going out as a family, I had dressed him in a red shirt, and he just looked too girly…even for me. A part of me hated to do it, but after it was all done, I really liked it.
Here he is a day later – with his hair touched up a bit (in the back) and washed.
After I cut his hair, I was lamenting about how he didn’t look like my little baby anymore. He looked so much more like a little BOY now. His sister, Mrs. Sayuri turns to me and says, “Well, Mommy. He doesn’t look like a baby anymore, but he still talks like one!”
How old were your children when they had their first haircut?
