First hair cut.... with out making a scene...

We have had our share of scenes created when people passing by have glared at me for torturing my child....passed snide comments about how they would do it themselves'at home'.....etc...etc...

But I was insistent.. Joy had to get a proper haircut... and I was not going to do it... coz i couldn't cut hair....there were hairdressers for this or barbers.... and I wasn't one....

I had also seen some of the kids in the locality after their mums and dads had had a go at their hair..... they looked hilarious , ridiculous and traumatised..

So I found a Loreal Kids Salon near where we lived which had these little toy cars and motor cycles and put on cartoons on the TV... gace kids toys to distract them etc.... The first time was great ..Joy didn't even realise that he was getting a haircut..... but the times after that.... life wasn't so easy for us... so much so .. that I refused to go with him for his haircut.. his Baba was delegated the task... the same way I have now refused to accompany him for his vaccinations... these too are his Baba's responsibility......

But this time... Joy is almost 3..... and his haircut was like it would be for any adults!!!He sat and looked at himself in the mirror...raised and lowered his head when asked.... My lil baby was growing up..... <after he finished .. he went and checked on his Baba who was getting his haircut done at the other end of the salon....

Look at Joy getting his haircut...... like a Big Boy!!!

Your post and the pics reminded me of my experience too when i took my son to the hairdresser's to get a proper haircut done. I too faced a lot of snide comments that why do you spend money when you can do this from home with a pair of scissors? Anyway, I liked your post, and the pics. Now Joy looks ready and supercool as he gets ready for the haircut.
