The First Haircut

Part I:  What's the Big Deal? 

    I didn't understand what all of the fuss was about over a haircut.   The Hubbs wouldn't even talk about it when I mentioned it.  Friends warned me to bring a camera with that sentimental warning in their eyes.  Am I missing something?  I mean, isn't it my responsibility to keep his little noggin under control?  If only my parents had protected me from bad hair I wouldn't  be hiding so many bad pictures.  I mean blackmail bad.   

    So, with much convincing we headed off to see one of my favorite people in the whole wide world, Susan, who owns Tiger Cuts.  (a word of caution: You will be exposed to large doses of orange and purple.  We are in Tiger country after all.)

Here is the before shot.  See what I mean?  What family members referred to so fondly as 'baby curls' just looked like a mullet to me.  A little too much business up front and party in the back for my taste.

Part II: The Many Faces of a Social Ham

Part III:  We Love Sue

We love Sue, she lets us have ooey gooey bright blue suckers without even flinching.  See that? - she's fearless.  Sue, you are one of the great ones.  The Steelers should have won that Superbowl in your name.  You-Are-That-Great.

Pat IV:  Now I Get It

So, now I see the big picture of it all.  Here, let me show you.

See......here is my baby before:

And here is my boy after:

There........did you miss it? 

You must have blinked.

It goes by so fast.......

........sniff........ I hate it when it goes by so fast.

Well thanks for humoring me by letting a sentimental Mom share her baby's son's first haircut.

Much Love,
