“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Barber shop
This weekend Bub received his first hair cut under the expert scissors of our lovely friend, Tony at Sterling Hairdressing Parlour & Barber Shop. After umming and ahhing for weeks and changing my mind many times I knuckled down and committed to the chop. I loved Bub’s long curls but at the end of each day  running around like a mad thing the soft strawberry curls looked more like a ratty mullet.
So Tony patiently gave Bub a mod hair cut, while he sat on SAH’s lap and one of Tony’s other barbers, Connor held an iPad playing Peppa Pig. Bub was happy and for the most part sat still and neither one of us cried – a miracle!

More photos of this day to come.

  • Yay! No tears, I had such a hard time cutting Casper’s hair for the first time. Thos beautiful soft baby curls, all the hair he ever had! But yes when it comes down to it, it’s a mullett. Plain and simple. I can’t wait to see a picture of the finished ‘do!

  • Oh no tears! Well done!!
    I absolutely sobbed when I had my Daughters hair cut for the first time…

  • First haircut! Great shot to capture the moment. x

  • What a cute little person! I’m pretty sure that my son will never have a haircut, he’s too energetic to just sit there for a few minutes.

  • Oh first hair cuts! Such a milestone. I probably would have cried too. I did when Imp wanted all her long hair cut off. I was a mess.
