First Haircut

Up until recently, I’d not seen a reason to cut Zizi’s hair. Her curly tresses were delightful, even though the twice daily combing was not the most fun for either of us. Yet now at 3, when wet her hair reached the top of her butt-butt. That was fine for braids, but not so fine when she wanted to wear her hair loose. It was too much to contain with headbands or clips. Even if I tried to leave it open, the teachers would end up braiding it at school. So with reluctance (yes, I have that black person hair cutting thing), she headed to Superstarz Kidz Salon for her first haircut.

I really didn’t want to be *that* parent rolling in with the dSLR for photos of the event, so I managed with my iPhone. Yes the images are crappy, but ça y est.

She was so happy to be able to sit in a pink jeep watching Dora the entire time.

After we got back home, I managed to break out The Precious for a couple of pics of the new do:

    Thank you, my friend! How are you and the munchkin doing? I’ve been so busy starting the photog business that I’ve not been around my bloggy-friends as much as before.

    Oh yes indeed. They even gave me a certificate documenting the first haircut!

    Sooo cute. And I still love that bottom picture. I was just noticing the other day that V’s hair is almost at her butt if you pull out the curls. And the knots she gets! But I’m not quite ready yet *g*

    That is a lot of hair! She is delightful during the process. What a precious soul.

  10. Greta Says:

    Why would teachers braid her hair? What is their problem?

  11. Liana Says:

    Godmother Greta, her hair falls into her face and upsets her so that's why they were braiding it.
