Johnny has needed a haircut for quite some time. He has had these wings for what seems like forever now.
(This is him saying “Don’t you cut my hair! I like my wings.”)
A few weeks ago, he started squinting a lot & I thought maybe he needed glasses. But no, some of his bang hairs were just too long! So I trimmed a few hairs then. I’ve been hesitant to get him a full on hair cut, because I love his little wings so much. BUT, his hair is getting so long on top & he has this habit of twisting his hair… I’ve cut FIVE knots out of his hair this week.
Wednesday, we went in for a trim. It was such a happy/sad moment.
Happy my little boy is growing up. So proud of him sitting in the chair like a big boy. Sad my little boy is growing up.
On the way to get his hair cut, reading a Valentine’s Day card from his Papaw & Bella:
Playing with the fun toys while waiting (I was slightly worried as there was a kid a little older than him screaming his head off the entire time his hair was being cut):
Fishies! He actually calls them “Fisher” (his cousin) which sounds like “beer”.
Applesauce as a distraction:
The first cut!
What ARE you doing to my hair??
Trying the iPhone as a distraction:
And do you know what wound up being the best distraction? Keeping him entranced like this for several minutes??
A dancing dog that sang “Who let the dogs out”.
And finally, he was all done! With a big boy hair cut.
But still cute as pie.
And yes, I saved his wings:
