- Wedding: February 2009
So yesterday afternoon I had an Ob/Gyn appointment. Since it was during the day my husband had to work and I did not have a babysitter. My dad offered to take a day off of work to watch my son which I greatly appreciated. I was a little nervous because my dad has absolutely ZeRo tollerance for children and my 2 year old is…well a two year old. I am a cosmetologist so I have been the only one to ever cut his hair. We don’t keep is hair really short but not long. The ends are usually mid ear. He has the perfect shaped head for the “dude/bro” look. For those of you who don’t know that term its kinda like a sufer guy look. The way his hair curls at the end just makes it absolutely adorable!
Well a few days ago when I tried to trim his hair he was wayyy to wiggly to get as much done as I wanted. It didn’t turn out the greatest but definetly wasn’t awful either. I’m very picky about his hair and I was still okay with the results. My dad on the other hand…well he just kept asking me when I’m going to fix it. It kind of hurt a little because that is my profession he is criticizing and my own sons hair. I still just let it roll of my shoulders because that is just how my dad is and always has been.
So yesterday rolls around and I drop Seth off and my dad goes “what if I were to take Seth to the salon to get his hair cut”. I totally did not believe he would actually do it so I jokingly said “If you want to attempt that then go ahead”. I knew Seth wouldn’t do well at all at the salon and I thought my dad would know that too. Well I go back after my appointment to pick him up and to my complete surprise there is my little boy with buzzed hair and no more curls =( It wasn’t short short but short enough that I can’t wait for it to grow out a little. At first I didn’t get mad at all. Actually I’m still not mad, just a little…sad. I guess he didn’t do well at all and my dad had no problem telling me that. I know they used the clippers on him which is something I’ve never done before because I know hes scared of the sound. I always scissor cut his hair. I know the lady wasn’t intentionally trying to hurt him what so ever but I found a few nicks and red marks on his neck. I’m just not sure what to think about this….
Again I’m not mad. I’m just a little sad, hurt and frusterated. I am the hairstylist and he is my son. I would have no problem taking him to another stylist but I would of really liked to have been there. I guess my dad didn’t even tell the lady who did his hair that Seths own mother does the same thing. He just had her “fix” his hair. He just doesn’t look like my little boy right now. =(
Thank you for letting me vent about this! Sorry if its a pointless post!!!
