As you can see in my siggy pic, Beni is in desperate need of a haircut... at minimum she needs her bangs trimmed out of her eyes (DRIVES ME CRAZY the way that looks!). I tried a couple weeks ago to do it, and she swatted my hand away every time I came near with the scissors... it wasn't going to happen without putting her in danger of getting an eye poked out, so I let it be. I've been trying to put barrettes in her hair a lot recently, because she just looks so much less unkempt that way.
Anyway... so I know she needs a haircut, but, she won't let me do it, and it's not like Vientiane has a cool kiddies hair salon... so I think I am going to just try to get through it and wait til we get back to the States and take her to a place that will be fun enough/distraction enough that she will let them do it. Just in time for her 2nd birthday, I guess!
All that said, I have to admit, that for as much as I hate the way her hair looks right now, I am having some sentimentality about her having her first proper hair cut (she did let me trim her bangs once a few months ago...so I really don't know why she won't let me do it again!). It makes me laugh, because my step-nephew didn't get a haircut for SUCH a long time, and he had pretty thin curly hair, and he seriously looked like Bozo the clown... we used to make fun of him to his mom all the time... cause he just looked silly. But she was attached to the hair. Now I get it! I tell Beni all the time she looks like a street rat or street urchin...
Is anyone else still attached to the hair? I know some of our Moonbeams started getting hair cuts like forever ago... but surely there is someone else still out there that hasn't had one yet?
