We didn't actually plan to get Chase's haircut today... it just kind of happened. We were on our way home from Walmart and stopped at Starbucks for coffee. We casually started talking about needing to trim his hair... at least in the front... it was always in his eyes . While we were in line Adam got on the internet to look for kid hair salons in the area... we didn't find anything but I saw a Hair Cuttery in the distance. Hmmm, I bet they cut kids hair. We go over and are getting out of the car when we discover that Chase soaked through his diaper and a good portion of his pants. Good thing I packed an extra pair of pants! I will take this time to say a diaper bag with no diapers... just a useless bag ;~( Yep... I forgot to restock so I am completely out! Awesome.
I do have a cloth diaper that I have been using as a burp cloth... I bet that will work!
We put that around him... with nothing but the clean pair of pants holding it up and go into Hair Cuttery. We have come so far that I didn't want to quit.
They have an opening! Woot, this is going to happen!
Just having fun and exploring while we wait to be called back.
Checking out the silver box daddy always has with him!
We are called back a couple minutes later and just as I am going to sit him in the booster I realize he has leaked through our makeshift diaper and only clean pair of pants. Whoops... mommy is not as smart as she thought. We bail on the haircut and hurry home.
This is what a negligent mommy will do to you:
So sad! Seriously I couldn't feel worse but at the same time... really freakin funny. I get Chase cleaned up while Adam looks for another salon... maybe one more kid oriented. He finds a place and calls but they are booked tonight. I am starting to feel like this momentum that I had going was fizzling and it would be another 17 months until I was ready again... then Adam had a brilliant idea.
My hair dresser is a friend of Adam's from a long time ago and she has been wanting to see Adam and Chase since we moved back to town... let's just stop in to her salon and see if she can do a quick cut while we say hi.
Sure enough, not only is she thrilled to see Adam and Chase, she has plenty of time to cut Chase's hair!
While we wait for her to finish with her client, Chase preps himself to have his hair cut.
We hop up in the chair and get started...
He's definitely not sure about this whole 'touching my head, cutting my hair off' thing at first...
But soon enough he grows fond of Pam and doesn't mind her messing with his head.
Mommy's keys provide a nice distraction...
Actually, this is kind of fun!
May I present...
...my freshly groomed little man!
We wanted to keep the length but give him a cleaned up look and I think Pam did a great job! While I am sad to see those first hairs go, I am very happy with his new look.
If you are in Hagerstown and in need of a great stylist... may I recommend Pam from Simplicity! I just love her!
Now... I am off to put a stack of diapers in the Jeep... you know, just in case!
