Bryson's 3rd Hair Cut

The Friday before Bryson's 2nd Birthday, Emily and Gerald informed me that Gerald (Grandpa) was going to give Bryson a hair cut instead of taking him to Snippits ( an expensive children's hair salon). I was not to happy about this because of his birthday being the next day and he was going to have his pictures done a few days after that. I tried to explain that it had been 30 plus years since daddy had given a two year old a hair cut and it was a girls bangs. I know Gerald can do any thing, he has given countless perms,cuts and even dye jobs but I still didn't want to risk Bryson's hair getting messed up. Well, Grandpa gave it a try and Bryson was really good but it was taking a little too long for Bryson and he started moving around. I was getting antsy so I pleaded "please let's just take him to a professional". We then all got into the truck drove 5 minutes around the block to get Bryson his 3rd hair cut. Snippits is set up with Animal Crackers, a chair that moves up and down and the best thing --------a tv with a little children's movie. Bryson ate his cookies and watched his video while Gramme, Grandpa and Momma took pictures .

Would have helped if we could have used the TV in the kitchen. Grandpa is such a perfectionist.

I ain't as good as I once was,I've got a few years on me now. But there was a time, back in my prime
when I really cut, trim, curl, dye, and perm some hair.
So don't double dog dare me now, cause I'd have to call your bluff. I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was,
And I can still cut hair, just not Bryson's.

You also got to remember that I had very sharp scissors and 1 slip or head movement would cause a series of memories that Bryson nor I would likely get over for a while. As bad as I wanted to cut his hair and be able to say I did, I couldn’t. This was the best spent $20.00 I’ve ever spent.

I think Grandpa would have done a wonderful job, too! But I certainly understand about not wanting to create traumatic memories!
