I read a great tip online the other day about offering your child a sucker or a popsicle while you cut their hair. Last time I trimmed Anja’s, I had Husband there to keep her occupied with a book while I sprayed and cut. This time I was on my own, so Anja got her very first popsicle, orange-flavored. She loved it!
I decided to do a few layers this time, since she sat still for 10-15 minutes (I know! The very thought of it makes me blank out in disbelief!), which gave her a lot more body in the back. Most of the time they flip up around her ears, which is cute. My hair did the same thing when I was small. And I didn’t want her to have bangs, but until she gets older, I just decided I’m embracing them. The side-comb thing wasn’t working terribly well with her hair, and now that I’m used to them, I quite like her teeny little bangs. 🙂
