I love that my kiddo has so much of that red hair and I would like for him to keep it all as long as possible… But the day comes when we all have to get our hair cut – if we want it to be manageable and healthy at least. So we took off the least amount we could. I know, I know… boo hoo… Who cares? But to a first time mommy, I imagine you have or you will also feel the same resistance to losing any of your babies hair, so don’t judge. This is actually his second hair cut, not his first but it was still not any easier for me. My sister did a great job working with all his wiggling and turning. He did keep calm though and sat up the whole time. Tip: fruit snacks.
