First Haircut Stories
"I was so tired of seeing Gabriela's hair in her eyes. She refused to keep the barrette in her hair, so one morning when she was sitting on my lap, I grabbed the scissors and cut her bangs! I'm not known for having the steadiest hand. I have to say, if you looked closely, you could see where it wasn't totally straight, but most people didn't notice. Gabi was thrilled to be able to see!"

"I didn't think anything about getting my 1-year-old son's hair cut since my other two children love it. But it was a complete nightmare! He whipped his head around in all different directions while kicking, shrieking, and crying. The hairdresser had me put him on my lap and give him a lollipop to hold while my older son blew bubbles. Dominic didn't calm down until we were in the car on the way home. You would have thought someone chopped off his arm, not his hair!"

"My oldest son's first haircut went better than expected. We took him to a corner barbershop, and he sat right in the chair and let the barber cut away. In 10 minutes he went from a head full of bright red curls to almost a buzz cut."
