I Can Explain

I've been tossing around the idea of a new name for this blog:  "My Family, Our Hair".  Whadda ya think?

This is the story of how June's first haircut came to pass this weekend in an upscale, adult salon.  First, I got my haircut on Friday.  Second, and this is the part that may make the least sense (at least financially), I decided to make an appointment for Georgia at the grown-up salon for Saturday so that my stylist could fix some uneven little problem areas that the kiddie haircut place had left Georgia with last month.  Then, during Friday's appointment I got to yapping about my indecisiveness about whether to cut June's hair yet.  It was getting so scraggly in places, but I was hesitant about cutting off her curls.  Amy the stylist generously suggested that I just bring them both in for Georgia's appointment the next morning and she'd give me a little 2-for-1 special.  Really?  Ok!

I'm not usually one to do this, but I packed candies, cookies and Joe's iPad in anticipation of great difficulties getting Georgia or June to sit still without a giant toy car to sit in or a cartoon in front of them (like they offer at the kiddie barber shops).  Turns out all of this was unnecessary, because Georgia LOVED it, so June followed along happily.  My favorite part was while we were waiting our turn and Georgia asked me, "Why is she putting tin foil in that lady's hair?" and then announced from across the room, "Excuse me, Amy.  I don't want to change the color of my hair."  June's cut involved maybe two snips that I'm sure I could've done myself, and is essentially pictured in its entirety below, but I am still thankful for Amy's expertise to know not to mess with the back yet.  My baby's bangs look adorable now, and her mullet can live on. 



Monkey and Bunny wonder if they're next:

I couldn't believe she went for this:
