I loved Mrs. Deer’s recent post about how she cut Little Deer’s hair at home. While there are things that I can teach myself, things I can do myself, things I am willing to go out on a limb and try, Colin’s first haircut was NOT one of those things. Not because I am better than a home haircut in any way. No, no. The opposite. I just don’t trust myself with scissors, a mess of crazy curls, an impatient toddler and the emotions that are entangled with trimming his baby locks. I just couldn’t do it. And so, I settled for the next best thing – a visit to the local Hair Cuttery with his dad for some male bonding over haircuts.
