The Adams barber shop

I actually bought a haircut kit at Walmart this week and Chris cut Tanner's hair tonight for the first time. Well, I guess I should say the first "successful" time! Tanner has gone ballistic everytime he sees the scissors or shears for quite some time. We tried about a year ago to cut his hair at home, but quickly realized that the screaming and flailing were jeopardizing the safety of his ears and scalp so we decided to leave it to the professionals. So, we have been taking him to a kids haircut place every 6 weeks or so and he has been slowly getting better. Of course, it helps that they have these cool cars for him to sit in and they play movies while they cut his hair. This is one of those things that makes me realize how extravagant and over the top American culture has become...but I digress. Anyways, his last haircut was the first time that we didn't have any screaming the entire time...a huge success! So we decided it was time we cut his hair at home. He did really well. Chris let him use the shears on his stuffed kitty so that helped to calm him down. We had a few tears, but overall it was a pretty good experience. I would take a picture of the newly sheared cutie, but he is fast asleep. Maybe tomorrow...
