Mr. Carter got a haircut (it’s been about a month now, but this kid had some serious hair). I absolutely love his blonde surfer hair, but dad tends to think it gets a bit out of control, so to make sure that both parents get equal time of thinking their kid looks half decent, it was time to head to the chop shop. Usually I cut his hair at home, just because it’s easier, cheaper, and I get to make sure they don’t go to short. Well I couldn’t help but notice a little sign when we were in town one day about a special for $5 kids cuts. I thought “WOW, that’s a great deal, and I wouldn’t have to clean up the mess, or deal with the squirming.” So I called, and she was pretty much empty that afternoon so we headed on over after nap time. Well to make a long story short, he screamed the entire time, despite the cool chair and his own tv with movie selection included. Or the bookshelf of toys. Yep, he did not care. So I ended up having to put a cape on myself and sit in the chair, and strap him to my lap. (Meanwhile his sister is sitting completely content in her car seat wondering what the heck is going on.) Well the clippers kept buzzing, and Carter kept screaming, and then the lady exclaims ” Wow, he has a lot of hair,” “This is like cutting a grown man’s head.” And in my head I’m thinking, “Yeah, but it’s still only 5 bucks right!” It was, we paid, I tipped big due to the screaming, and we left as quickly as I could get out of there, with the intent to never return. So here’s the before and after. NOTE: there are no photos of the ‘during’ due to the excessive tears and boogers flying around.
