Reflections of a Mom's Life

another haircut

I've been asking Jackson if I could cut his hair for a couple of weeks now. He has cried at every haircut he has gotten in his 3 short years of life. My mom cautioned me because he just has such a fit. She's been worried I would cut him or myself...she cut herself last time she cut his hair in March. Yes, March was his last haircut!!! :) So, I asked him the other day while we were playing in the back yard if he wanted to have mommy cut his hair and he said YES!!! So, immediately...and I'm not kidding...we went inside and I got everything out. I gave him a little bag of Jelly Beans and he didn't even cry or fuss once! I couldn't believe it! It was actually easier to cut than Harrison's because his hair is more forgiving. Harrison's hair is so straight and blunt that it can show imperfections easily. I was so happy with how it turned out and most of all happy that he agreed and it wasn't a traumatic experience! Hooray!!! :)

Love, Mom

You're becoming quite talented! Oh, the magic of candy. It's gotten us through many hair cuts.

Wow Beth I am so impressed! You are becoming quite the pro and Jackson's hair looks awesome! And just think of all the $$$ you are saving. He is such a cutie too...I'm sure he enjoyed those jelly beans...he's like his Mimi huh??? She can never get enough Jelly Beans.
