So this morning we (well, Mr. B had the clippers. I had the camera.) gave our baby boy his first haircut.
Being completely against boys' curls my whole life (ya know, those toddler curls that mothers just don't want to cut), I now understand why mothers are hesitant to let them go. My baby's hair was maybe two inches, and I still had a hard time, even though even I thought it was too long.
Mr. B was not going to back down though. This is his SON, for crying out loud. He gets haircuts, and his hair will be short.
I was having a mini freak out - "What did you do? What are you doing? Oh, he looks so different! He's not my baby anymore!" while scurrying around, grabbing for the cutoff locks to save for a not-even-put-together-yet baby book.
And it got me to thinking (after telling a friend who thought I was absurd)... do other people do this? I had some saved from my first haircut. Is my family just weird, or is this the norm?
Please. Do share.
