New man

23 Jun

So, about a month ago I braided all of Lucien’s hair – can you believe his hair was 7 or 8 inches long! Crazy! He loved the braids but Jeremy and I were actually looking for a place for him to get a haircut. It’s really hard finding a barber who will take children and who’s had experience with African American hair, at least in my area that’s the case.


We randomly found this Dominican barber shop in a town that’s about a half hour from us. We went in to see if they took kids and they said yes. This was about a month ago. Then J got caught up with travel for conferences and work and…


Here’s the thing about Lucien, he really hates having his hair touched. We were convinced he was going to freak out when we got to the barber. Honestly, I thought he was going to cry so hard that he’d vomit. We actually were preparing for what to do in case that happened.


Yep. We were worried for nothing. Lucien liked him right away and sat still and was so good. I couldn’t believe it. They were buddies by the end of the visit. Yay! We’re definitely going back there.


And you can see he likes his haircut, too. He keeps coming over and saying “mommy! Daddy! Haircut!!” while rubbing his head. So cute.

      Thank you – it was pure luck that I managed to snap it in time.
