M's hair has frequently been compared to Rapunzel's. This is because at 4 years 7 months she hasn't had a haircut, or at least she hadn't until yesterday. Finally a few weeks ago she agreed that she would get her haircut. I'm not sure we would have been successful if it wasn't for our local kid's hairdressers (Little Fidgets). What the hairdressers lack in talent the salon makes up for in novelty. Children get to sit in a car or on a bike and watch tv, better still they have a huge bucket of sweets they can help themselves to post cut. The trim lasted all of 5 minutes and we avoided having a blow-dry as M is scared of the noise, but success: M's hair is now slightly neater.
As they started to cut M's hair the lady asked me "do you want to keep some hair?", to which M replied in a worried voice "don't take too much off!". I think she was worried she was going to come out bald.
