Playing Barbershop

I was looking at a picture of Jack on Allison's blog the other day...

Um, yikes! I knew he needed a haircut, but seriously, didn't realize it was that bad until I saw this picture. So, on the spur of the moment, last Friday I decided I could cut it myself. He absolutely hates for people to touch his head, which makes a trip to my hair lady torture for him (and us!).

I loaded him up in his booster seat over a sheet on the living room floor, stuck a Barney video in, and gave it a go.


First I did the back...


then the sides...


and he sat still and was great! When I got to the front he'd almost had it, so I had to pull out the big guns... a sucker! His second sucker ever, and he LOVED it, sitting perfectly still for Mommy.


In the end, there are a few crooked spots, but it looks TONS better than it did! And it was so much more calm than taking him to get it done, although it did take a lot longer. After a shower he looked like a new little man.

Now I'm in desperate need of a cut... but I think I'll be having someone else do that for me!
