She was not happy. She's 2. Sitting in this chair was not her idea and then someone decided to strap her in with a seatbelt. How dare we. The woman who cut her hair was amazing, though. She started by giving her a cup of animal crackers, which she turned her nose up to. then I noticed the lollipops. Our poor, deprived child has never had a lollipop before. She watched me like a hawk as I unwrapped it. I think she knew it was special.
She was pretty sure she wanted to take that little treat off of my hands.
And she knew exactly what she wanted to do with it. See how she is looking down at the ground here? She's still trying to figure out if she's mad or not but at the same time she is looking at me. To get the back of her hair cut properly, she had to look at the ground. So I took the entire bowl of lollipops, sat on the ground and shook them. She was mesmerized.
Our child is like her mother. She doesn't like to savor things. She chomped through that lollipop like it was her job. Suck on it? No, I have teeth for a reason, mom.
I'm so thankful for friendly people. This smile came thanks to a grandmother in the seat behind her who was making funny noises and faces.
Or maybe it's because we're on lollipop #2....
And with this shot, I had a mild heart attack.
So happy (after 3 lollipops) that she even let the nice lady put a ponytail holder and ribbon in her hair.
All done! Check out that palm tree.

I ended up having to trim off some of the back in the middle when we got home. Her hairline is just a little long in the middle so I followed her around the house with a sharp pair of scissors, cutting as she ran around like a lunatic. Safety first!
I love it. I think it suits her and it works well for the hot weather we have now. It's SO easy to maintain, as well. I brush it in the morning but I really don't even need to do that. It's perfect for a little girl who refuses to keep clips, rubber bands or hairbands in her hair for more than 5 minutes at a time (usually 5 seconds). I guess when you're a stranger with candy, you get special treatment.
A week later.... still good!
