When Arlo has his hair cut he is so good, and more importantly still. He is never still ordinarily, always moving, talking climbing… but the moment you sit him in a barbers chair he freezes! He’s not afraid I don’t think as he’s never upset or whiny, he just seems to know that he needs to stay still. I think Sam’s trained him well, as he took him for his first couple of cuts, but now I can take him and not have him sat on my lap. I just can’t get enough of his little serious face… when the barber held up the mirror so he could see they back he just did this little curt nod like ‘yep, that’ll do’.
I think it doesn’t help that with every snip he looks a little bit older, as a more grown up cut appears in place of the mop of messy hair that he arrived with! Athena has never had a hair cut but we’ll be taking her for a trim before she starts school in a couple of weeks.
