The Haircut

First, Gabriella had a good day at school. The teachers quickly learned that they will have to keep Miss G's fruit(her dessert) hidden until she has eaten her lunch. Apparently, they gave it all to her and, surprise, she ate all the fruit and only picked at her sandwich.... And, as anticipated, lots of hissies and drama when I took her out of there today. I do hope that she will get used to the routine of it and realize we will go back in a few days and that it's not so bad to leave. She's been having the same huge fits when we leave the OT clinic. The OT(who she sees for her sensory-seeking issues) used to come to the house, but we recently switched to going in to the clinic. So, when it's time to go, a major tantrum happens and I have to drag her kicking and screaming to the car since they have toys and stuff we don't have here.

Anyway, after we left school, we went to get her haircut. She did do good and really surprised me at how well she sat there in the chair.

First, we tried to convince her to lay in the chair and get her hair washed, but she wanted no part of it. We even tried to let her sit and watch daddy while he got his done, but nope, she wasn't buying it. Remember that I have to give her cups and buckets to get her into the splash parks with the spraying water, so she wasn't too keen on having it sprayed on her head.

All done!

It is a bit shorter in the back now, but she really did have some long, stray ends that had to get trimmed up and I know it will grow back....

Oh, and Bing has a new post on his blog

Super cute.

Do you know that my daughter is 4 and has never had a haircut?

I don't know what we're waiting for. I guess I'm not ready for that little milestone yet.

She did great getting her first haircut...she's even smiling! I love her curls!! I hope Olivia does that good when I take her this weekend.
It is great that she loves going to school and doesn't cling to you when you are trying to leave her.

Cute pictures!

gvgGlad school went well and hope you enjoyed your time. I am sure it went fast.

She is smiling while getting her hair cut. How cute. I have to take photos next time. I take Savannah to a place that just does children called Scissor Kids. It is so cute. She sits in a car and they spray the comb and then comb her hair due to her fear of falling and splashing water. I am so happy it went well.

I am sure it is a phase of her not wanting to leave places. I had children in my class that did that, but because they were really attached to me and did not want to go home. I guess that says something about their home life, huh? Savannah has only done that twice. Not very likely for her not to want to leave somewhere. She is usually ready. At least you don't have to worry about her while she is there. You know she is having fun.
