Wild Thing has had a bit taken off the front so he could see, a dredlock snipped out to avoid combing trauma once or twice, and there was a mishap with the craft scissors last month, but this was his first real haircut. I was terrified he'd lose his curls (many kids do). But he has my hair and it remains curly. In fact he looks an awful lot like me around the same age!
I was worried he'd be traumatized by the cut but he did just fine.
Now he's ready for his next big kid adjustment - GLASSES.
