Out of all my kids, baby Paul was born with the most hair, which isn’t really saying a lot considering my others three kids were born basically bald and stayed that way until their second birthday. But nevertheless, Paul’s head of hair at birth was the darkest and thickest of my bunch.
But it didn’t take long until most of it fell out, and slowly but surely came back in thinner and lighter, just like the others. Paul’s now almost 17 months old, and just a couple days ago we decided it was time to clean things up a bit around his ears. You know the saying “business in the front, party in the back”? Yeah, baby Paul was rocking the party in the front and the party in the back. It was long all over, and in desperate need of some TLC.
So it was time. Time for baby Paul’s first trip to the backyard salon. We dug out our $9 barber shears from the drugstore and asked our best beauty school drop-out babysitter if she would do the cutting honors.
