She has gone with Daddy to the barber at least 20 times to see how it works. She agreed that when she turned 4 she would try getting a haircut herself. We talked and talked and I was certain it would be a fun adventure for all right after she turned 4. Then, just a wee bit before her 4th birthday she saw the movie Tangled (Rapunzel) and, much to our dismay, she decided that cutting her hair was not in the near future.
Then one night, while she was playing a game on the computer and I was brushing her hair after bath, I happened to mention that I could give her a haircut right there, “if you want”. “Okay” she said. With every ounce of restraint I have, I managed not to scream with delight and make a big deal about it….I just calmly grabbed scissors and started cutting. Then, as calmly as I could, in my “it’s no big deal” tone, I asked Daddy to grab the camera.
4 years old. Dayla’s first haircut, my first time cutting hair. We were both excited about it and happy with the result, so I would say it was a huge success.
