Oh, these last-firsts make my heart ache. I had put off Cadence's first haircut because she hasn't really needed one, but also because this is the last time that I would be witnessing one of my children's first haircuts. (For the record, I missed out on Sierra's first haircut because Brad decided to do it himself when I was out of town. It's a good thing that being tarred and feathered is obsolete, because that is what I wanted to do to him!) The thought of cutting off Cadence's wispy little ends, the hair that I touched when she was first placed in my arms... the thought just took my breath away. At three and half years old, though, it was time for her wispies to go. She takes out her ponytails or clips within and hour and is always brushing her hair out of her face.
So, we headed to our beloved hairdresser, Mary. Mary has given Cadence many "haircuts" since Cadence insists on getting it done every time she is at the salon. Laurel and Sierra were so excited to watch Cadence get her first haircut. Ironically, Cadence didn't sit nearly as still as when she has gotten her pretend haircuts, but she did pretty well. She attempted to "read" while getting her 10 minute haircut! Of course, she looks older now... or maybe it's just me. It's so hard to believe that she is well on her way to being four years old. Oh, those last-firsts.
What else should one read during her first haircut except "Fifteen" by Beverly Cleary?!
Two of the sweetest, funniest, most high energy girls that I know!
