Step one – Convince husband that haircut is needed and that having a toddler with a “super cool” rat tail is, in fact, not super cool at all.
Step two – Locate said toddler. He will most likely be found emptying dresser drawers, standing atop the coffee table, or tormenting the dog.
Step three - Attempt to get wiggly toddler to sit still for before pictures of wicked bad skullet. Halfway succeed.
Step four – Brace yourself for freak out. Be pleasantly surprised when toddler thinks clippers are the absolute best thing ever.
Step five – Be relieved that toddler now looks like his parents love him. Be sad that he now looks more like a kid that a baby.
Step six – Look lovingly at wispy little lock of hair on counter. Take picture. Tell yourself you should just throw it away because your not a weirdo. Also tell yourself you should keep it to put in scrapbook. Leave on counter for a few days because you can’t make up your mind.
