Jack's first haircut.

Until last week, Jack was a 19 month-old virgin to the world of haircutting.

We were going to pay 25 bucks to take him to a place like this:



But then realized that he might a.) throw a fit, b.) wiggle like a floppy fish, or c.) scream, cry and kick his legs the entire time. And after all that hassle, when it came time to take him out of that neat-o airplane he would insist on staying and cause another scene. So I think we were smart. We saved 25 bucks, probably a choppy haircut anyway, and we don't have to feel obligated to scrapbook some cheesy certificate with a lock of hair taped to it.

We opted for the at-home, do-it-yourself job. And I must say, it turned out much better than expected. Thank you, Troy!



Of course we we prepared with Elmo's World on DVD and a stash of marshmallows as bribery.


He wasn't so sure about the snipping, but....



he did like the vibration of the clippers.


He looks like such a grown-up boy now. (sniffle, sniffle)

We just gave Jax a haircut yesterday too. It makes them look instantly older. *sigh* If they could only stay young... except for tantrums. Then I just want 'em to grow up!! Troy did a great job with the cutting!

Troy, you're showing some real skill cutting hair... We've all (and by "we" I mean all the guys you've played hoops with) wondered why you never became a beautician. You seem drawn to it. What's that all about?

I'm proud of my cheesy "first hair cut " certificate with little blonde locks attached to it!

I must say, Jack's haircut is darling and did save you some bucks!
