Just A Trim

Zander has been in dire need of a haircut for months. But this event has been pushed aside. Partially due to the need to focus on Logan's health. Partially due to not knowing how we could accomplish this daunting task.

Zander is only 22 months old. Isn't that too young to take him to daddy's barber? Would he really sit still enough for mommy to cut his locks with with razor sharp scissors? How do people do this???

It finally got to the point where it had to be done since his hair was long enough to necessitate brushing it out of his eyes ever 5-10 minutes. And unfortunately it is socially unacceptable to put barrettes in a little boy's hair. But how were we going to cut the hair of a child who only stops moving long enough to proudly say one of his many words from his ever-expanding vocabulary.

Then one day last week, my husband came home with "Just A Trim" (As Seen On TV). I thought "You've got to be kidding!". But he wasn't. He was sure this was the solution to our son's hair dilema. I was shaking in my proverbial boots at the thought of placing this battery powered gizmo anywhere near my first born's head!

"Just A Trim" is built with the same concept as the clippers used by barbers and hair stylists alike. It comes with two attachments, so you can decide how much of a trim you will end up with. When one of the attachments is on it, the blades are not accessible. You just pop on the desired attachment, and brush it through your hair. So it did seem like the perfect solution.

Well, I gotta tell ya folks. It actually worked! Zander was such a good boy, and sat still for his trim as long as we would let him hold the trimmer every once in while. I can't believe how easy it was!

So....what do you think?

Really??? That easy? I have to say I am shocked! Since our first hair cut with our than 21 months old involved pinning a screaming boy while they cut was not exactly fun maybe we should be considering this instead of avoiding the next cut.
