So the time finally reached us that after months of looking at constantly bed hair, bum fluff, disheveled look we had been sporting I finally admitted at 16 months it was time for Lachlan’s first haircut. Why was I so emotional about this? It’s just some hair and it grows back, what’s the big deal? I was actually a bit of a mess come haircut day. I was a weird mixture of emotions…I was apprehensive about how I was going to get him to sit still for long enough, I was nervous about him wriggling at the wrong him and the barber nipping his ears with the scissors. Horrified at the thought that my baby was old enough to need a first haircut and I was devastated to know that his lovely locks he has been desperately trying to grow since the day he was born were about to be chopped off!!
Pull yourself together holly!! It’s just a bloody haircut!
The before shots
What a little rock star he was. Sat there in the chair watching his favorite show of Yo gabba gabba on the iPad he didn’t move at all, all ears were still in one piece and I even got a $5 discount for him being such a good little boy!
Having a well deserved treat on the way home!
So we were home – I had debriefed not as traumatic as expected and OH MY GOD!! My gorgeous little baby with a few snips here and a few snips there instantly became a toddler, love him!!
