It seems that there is typically so much dread about a babies first haircut. Mom's don't want to part with the curls, or more appropriately the mop top. Often times the babies don't want to part with the hair either. After all what part of their developing mind is supposed to understand why a strange person with a sharp object is hovering around their head.
At our house we were excited for the first haircut. We think little boy haircuts are cute. We tormented Arica's brother and his wife for months about getting their son's hair cut, and we are not hypocrites. In our defense our nephew was regularly referred to as she by strangers.
Braden didn't have any problem with the hair cut either. We should have known that he would like the barber sharp because of his social nature. After all it is the only place on earth where it is acceptable for men to gossip. There is plenty of talk about sports. In my particularly barber shop, decorated with no less than 5 deer heads and one bear, hunting is a very popular topic of conversation as well. So I look forward to many years of manly talk at the barber shop with my little buddy Braden.
