Look at it. Its beautiful. Poor guy has PERFECT girl hair that some people would die for. I wish my hair looked that good! Well it had never been touched by scissors. I couldn't bring myself to cut it. What if the curls never came back! Ugh. But it was long. REALLY long. Casey got tired of people complimenting his "daughter". I got tired of him brushing his bangs out of his eyes, because yes, he had bangs...

So the day came where we had to finally have it cut. Even though neither of us really wanted to do it, it had to be done. I didn't want to buzz it down with clippers like I do Casey's. So we researched places to take kids. Knowing this was going to be torture for both him and us. We found a place that specialized in kids. And even though the haircut costs $20! (kinda expensive for a kid if you ask me!) We went there anyways. Hoping and Praying this wouldn't be as bad as we were thinking it was going to be.
First we took him to play and run around.
Then came time for the haircut. He excitedly picked out which car he wanted to sit in. But as soon as we put him in it and buckled him in it was over.
We tried everything! Put on Cars, his favorite movie
Tried to distract him with looking out the window
Tried to bribe him with a sucker which he wanted no part of and Casey had to eat! Finally after 20 minutes of screaming and crying, by him and me, the hair dresser said "if your happy I'm happy"... She was done. Of course she hadn't really touched his "bangs" and for some reason decided to scrunch and fro up his hair. It didn't look good.
But we paid and left, we had tortured him enough. We took him down to play some more, ride a kiddie train and eat lunch.
Seriously FRO-ED UP!
Chocolate Milkshakes fix just about anything!
We have slowly been cutting away at the bangs ourselves. Putting on a movie, running in, sniping off a piece and then hiding the scissors when he turns around. Poor kid!
Luckily it has turned out well. He doesn't look too much older (I thought he would look way older!) But it looks so much better now that we have fixed it. And I am so excited that his curls haven't away completely. I love his little surfer dude look! But am dreading having to go thru hair cuts again!
