We had a first this weekend.
Yes, Maeve is almost 4 years old... but she had her FIRST haircut! Why have we waited FOUR years, you ask? I'm a freak. I am one of those moms that associates a first haircut with growing up. I know Maeve is growing up, but I really didn't want to succumb to that huge milestone!
Maeve was nervous about getting her hair cut, primarily because the word "cut" was involved. I think she thought it was going to hurt, maybe? But in order to get her in the building, we had to call it a "hair wash."
It worked, and we got her in for a trim Saturday night. Ryan and Henry walked around the mall, and I had an awesome bonding time with just MaeMae. :)
She was definitely hesitant about everything- but she did really well. She got a shampoo, and a trim. While the lady was trimming her hair, Maeve was eyeballing the scissors- she kept saying "Don't cut. No cutting!" I don't think she even realized what was happening though. The lady was great with cutting it fast and discreetly!
Now, for a woman who carries a camera to the grocery store, why did I not have a camera while getting Maeve's very first haircut??? I have no idea. And yeah, I'm sick about it. I did have my phone- which was able to capture the moment (albeit grainy).
How sweet is she??? :)
