Saturday, August 18 ... First Haircut!!!

Today Rowan had his first haircut!!! According to some people (like the hairdresser and my mother) LONG OVERDUE.
I love the idea of him having long hair, but I promised I would cut it when it became a mullet.

The other morning I tried to style it into a cute mohock ... and it promptly fell over. Then I tried to do a One Direction sweep thing.

(That's Harry. He's my favorite.)

But it sort of looking more like a Donald Trump.

(shudder ...)

Also, this child does not stay still long enough to get a decent picture.



Overall, this wouldn't bother me. Except that it's really short on the sides. That equals a mullet.

(this was from June, so imagine it WAY longer on the front and back, and just as short on the sides)

So I found a great kids' barber shop nearby, and we made the two-bus trek over to Middle Village to Frankie's Play Playce, a great little shop with barber seats like rocket ships and taxicabs.



The Hairdresser asked "Which show? Elmo, Dora, Wiggles?" They actually did have Blue's Clues (Blue's Big Music Show). At first, baby was not impressed.


Note: remember those old VHS movies that had several minutes of commercials and previews that the beginning? It's a good idea to have the tape cued up to the actual movie when using it to distract a toddler. Once we got the movie actually going, he was fine.


The hairdresser said, "I've never seen a TV show work so quickly on a kid!" That's just how we roll at our house.

And within about 30 seconds ...



The best part was the little playroom in the back, full of other people's toys (which are, of course, way better than his own).



And there's just something about a man wearing your baby.


Then we all went out for ice cream!
