|I love when Cam sits cross-legged like this.|
|Playing on the slide, before the cut.|
I had no holds barred for this experience. I was going to give Cam whatever the heck he wanted if it meant he would get his haircut, I mean, I drove all the way to Bountiful for this. So, he wanted candy, he got Mike 'n Ikes. They helped a bit along the way. He didn't want to sit in the airplane seat, the fire truck seat, or the car seat. He reluctantly sat in the airplane seat. We had picked out the movie Jungle Book, one of Cam's favs, but when I clipped him in ("Safety First" says the clipper lady) he started freaking. When she put the drape on him, he freaked more, when she sprayed his hair down and combed it back he freaked more. My main goal was to keep him in focused on Jungle Book. "CAMDEN! WATCH! LOOK! IT'S MOWGLI! CAMDEN! IT'S THE WOLVES! LOOK! BAGHEERA! WHERE IS HE TAKING MOWGLI? OH MY GOSH! IT'S MOWGLI! CAMDEN!" He was still intermittently freaking out so the magically hair cutter lady pulled out some bubbles. So Camden would eat a Mike 'n Ike, cry, blow some bubbles, cry, watch Mowgli for a second, and start all over again. However, it all ended on the up and up because he got a BALLOON after! The lady was SO cute and good with him, and FAST! His haircut is not perfect, and I did pay $16.00, but I left that place happier than Camden and he had a green balloon and a sucker.
|Look at his face in the reflection. So concentrated on unlocking the car.|
Then just a few hours later I decided to give my mane the chop, so I can grow it out again.
