MJ after his recent haircut! How handsome 🙂
There is one thing that I really appreciate about my husband. It is his ability to cut hair! Of course with MJ it has been awesome to have one less thing to worry about. My husband has been cutting MJ’s hair since he was 7 months old! As MJ got older we had to try more and more tricks to have him sit still. I would try things like lollipops, music, games, singing, and him sitting in my lap. Thank goodness for Elmo! We would put on an episode and have him watch it while his hair was cut. I do realize how frustrating it is for parents that don’t have an in-house barber. There are meltdowns, tantrums, screaming fits, and crying bouts that happen every day when “our children” have to get their hair cut. Now that MJ is older, we no longer need all of the distractions in order to have him sit still. He has come to love hair cut day because he loves the way he looks when it’s over. He stares at himself in the mirror, rubs his head, then runs to me to ask “mommy do you like my haircut?” I am so very thankful for the gift of “haircut heaven”.
