How to give a 2 year old a haircut.....

1. Get out your instruments of tortue..ahh i mean haircutting.














2. Make sure the child is sitting down.
3. Take 'before' photo:














4. Try again for a better pic. One that is in focus and your child doesn't looked stoned:

5. Give up trying to get a good picture.
6. Spray water on hair and comb.
7. Try and cut hair while 2 year old is moving his head back and forth at random intervals.
8. Figure this is enough hair cut for the moment:

9. Wait a few minutes until your child is distracted by eating rice bubbles to try again.
10. Realise that your child is smarter then you thought because he can eat and protest against getting his hair cut at the same time:


11. Decide that little boys look much cuter with long, shaggy hair.

That's why I take my kids to my hairdresser LOL. $5/kid is worth it to me. She's been doing dd's cuts since she was 18mo old. And both of my boys since they had enough hair to cut :)
