First Haircut

Well I finally mustered up the courage to get Charlotte's first hair cut. She has been telling me "no" for a couple of months now, so I finally just had to do it.

I really thought us waiting for 45 minutes and her playing before hand would soften her up. But alas, I was wrong.


This is the "before" shot.


Notice the little "purse" of beads in her hand. Yes, that is a bribe to get her to sit there. I know, shameless. What can I say.


the "during" shots,


and the "after" shots. I thought they would put a bow in or something, but that was an additional $10. Yikes!!! I was just glad to get out of there without a meltdown.

She was very resistant and told the hair dresser "no" to everything she asked her. (This is why she is not wearing the drape over her clothes to keep the cut hair off of her).

Overall, she did pretty good, I must say. Now, I just need to figure out how to fix it. At least it is not always in her face now.

Can't wait to make this scrapbook page...........
