The Mullet Cut

We finally did it. Today we took Harvey to have his neck cape removed (thanks Uncle Lee!). It went really well. We took him to a kiddie hair cut place called SnipIts in Brentwood. Harvey was a complete angel while in the chair (waiting in the waiting area for 40+ minutes, that's another story), and it was great. They only cut children's hair, so we figured that's the best place to take (untrained animals) toddlers to (be groomed) get their first haircut. There was a seat belt on his chair, which proved to be key when he dropped his toy and lurched forward to get it. And the hairstylist just kept cutting. No matter which way he moved, she just kept foraging forward. She knows that's the key: finish quickly at all costs.

Oh, and no pressure with the crazy momtographer in your face, shooting over 100 photos in the 4 minutes it took to cut his hair. Hey, you just never know which shot it going to be "the" shot. So I just keep going, crazy mom style.


So here are some "before" photos. This is what Harvey's hair looked like yesterday when I got him out of bed. No lie, I did not do anything to make it look like this (except for the fact that he maybe had some sunscreen in his hair from when we went to the pool before nap. But otherwise this is natural. )

As you can see, the colors in this place were crazy. So I tried to break it up with some black and white shots.

And we're going to act like this is not completely nasty. That's how you get through life with a toddler---just act like there aren't really that many germs on there.
