Hair, There and Everywhere (take 2)

I’m seething because I just had a whole post written, formatted and ready to go and my stupid computer crashed and now its gone! SO ANNOYING! Ugh. I am going to redo it now but you’ll be getting the Cliffs Notes version. My humble apologies…

HERE WE GO (again)!

As you can see from the picture above, Dylan needs a haircut. That picture was take on Saturday and when I saw it I decided to make him an appointment this week. Today was the day. But first, a glimpse at haircuts past.

Did you detect a theme? Yeah…he doesn’t like getting his hair cut. Also, I laugh when he cries. (Not really, though it would appear that way in these pictures.)

Thankfully, ice cream makes everything better:

In my original post, here is where I shared a couple anecdotes about people giving me unsolicited advice. I shall attempt to do that again, perhaps with less passion.

Story 1: An older couple came to see our house a few weeks back. The man was a father of seven and the woman, his second wife, a mother of one (his last child). As we were giving them a tour the man said to me, “You’re not really a parent if you only have one kid.” Excuse me?! I think Dylan would disagree. I felt bad for his wife because I’m sure this is something she’s heard for for years.

Story 2: Its hard for me to bite the bullet and get Dylan’s hair cut because I love his shaggy curls. Its with a bit of a heavy heart that I do get it cut, but unless I want to be one of those parents who never cuts her kid’s hair, I just have to do it sometimes. The last two times I’ve taken him to the salon complete strangers have come up to me and admonished me for being there, forcibly telling me, “Do not cut off his curls.” First of all, I can’t imagine being that invested in another person’s – a stranger’s – hair business. Second of all, leave me alone!

— end rant —

I’ll leave you now with a video for the grandparents. Here’s Dylan being cute in the car on the way to the hairdressers.

 

p.s. Jay was very sympathetic when my computer crashed but can you believe he actually asked me, “Now, what can you do to make sure that doesn’t happen again?” Men! Why don’t realize that emotional moments are NOT also teachable moments? I told him, “Absolutely nothing. This could happen every single day and I will never do anything to change or prevent it. Ever.”

(hitting “save” now)

Thanks for the wonderful pictures of Dylan! He is so cute, as we all know, and I can’t wait to see him!
I also HATE unsolicited advice! Take care:)
