Haircut Bonanza

Both boys had haircuts on Saturday--Number Two for the first time ever, and Number One for the first time in 14 months or so. We took a before picture of both of them from the back on Thursday, then several in process and immediately after on Saturday. We cut Number One's hair first so Number Two could see that it wasn't scary and didn't hurt, but he was still rather traumatized by the whole event (not helped by the fact that it was naptime). He didn't like the cape, he didn't like being sprayed with water, he didn't like the snippy scissors. You can see the tracks of his tears in his "after" shots. His haircut is a lot less even than would have been ideal, but I couldn't bear to put him through any more misery. Number One wanted to keep his bangs long (they actually stay out of his eyes better that way, going to the side instead of straight down--he has some weird cowlicks). Now both boys have hair shorter than mine! In the last shot, they are wearing their Costa Rican soccer uniforms, a gift from Grandpa and Grandpa.

They both look adorable! Poor #2 is so upset, though.

It wasn't anything that his nap didn't fix, fortunately. The hair, though, I'm itching to get my hands back on. We're thinking we'll try later this week, skip the poncho and just pop him in the tub immediately following.

thats how we cut our boys hair - out on the front lawn nearly naked, with a pair of trimmers, guard off. Then into the bathtub to rinse off, the hair left to blow away and become a soft bed in some bird's nest. Of course they have total buzz cuts with none left to make into little ponytails or tuck behind their ears - but soon you'll have a girl to do all that to for real! :-)

cute, cute boys though...

I also get my hair cut every two years, whether it needs it or not.

What handsome guys! Do they have Cartoon Cuts where you are? I've heard a number of parents with wee ones say that CC can be quite positive for little ones and that first snipperoo.
