Addison at 5 months:
Take to hair appointment...asleep in her carseat. She will continue to sleep the entire 60-90ish minute hair appointment, waking to sleepily smile at the hair dresser and then fall back asleep on the way out with you and your fabulous hair cut.
Carter at 5 months:
Take to hair appointment...asleep in his carseat. Once you are completely committed to the hair cut (hair washed and first snips taken out) he will wake up and whine for attention. When the receptionist comes over, he will flirt with her for ten minutes...just enough time to have your hair halfway cut. Just when you think you're home free, he will begin screaming bloody murder (offending the receptionist who assumes he's screaming at her) and rattling your hairdresser. He will then refuse to be comforted by anyone. You WILL leave with a halfway done hair cut with a little boy who finally settles down once you're outside.
Getting an impromptu short little haircut today was a bad, bad, bad, badbadbad idea....
and if you're thinking how naive I was to take him in the first place...don't judge. Addison was always so good for haircut time...how was I to know that wasn't normal???? (I would like to go back in time and thank that awesome 5 month old version of Addison. I totally didn't appreciate her enough.)
now for some online hat shopping...
