Today marked one of those childhood/parent milestones, it was decided this morning that our son’s hair was getting on the shaggy side, and after the weed whacker job I did last time I promised to never cut his hair again… so we took him to get it professionally cut.
It was a rollercoaster of emotions for mom as dad just stood there with a smile. First I was giddy, excited, then worrisome as I wondered if he would sit in the seat properly, if it would be quick, what if he freaked when he got sprayed by the water. Of course with the promise of a “treat” from the hairdresser my son was an absolute angel and only moved when instructed to. I burst with pride watching him as the hairdresser commented how well behaved he was, and then almost felt a tear prick my eyes as I watched his baby hair fall to the floor.
Our little man beamed when he was done, he accomplished the task at hand and was rewarded with treats. Personally I think women go through pregnancy hormones to better equip them for the up’s and downs they’re going to go through as they raise their children. It’s simply amazing what a mom can feel simply by watching her child do something for the first time.
