Bryan has always been the family barber (for himself and the kids, that is), but Bryan was out of town recently when Katie really needed her bangs trimmed so I decided to attempt cutting them myself. After viewing some haircutting articles and videos online and saying an earnest prayer for help, I sat Katie in her highchair, stuffed her with yoghurt flavored marshmallows, and went for it.
I was especially nervous because I still remember what happened when I gave my Cher Barbie doll a trim as a child. For those of you born in the 1970s or earlier, you’ll remember that Cher had hair that went at least down to her knees. I had only planned to give her black locks a little trim, but due to multiple failed attempts at cutting a straight line, she ended up with a short bob, thus ended my haircutting career for the next 30 years or so.
So, I was pleasantly surprised when Katie’s haircut ended up turning out quite decently! (If I do say so myself.) Here are the before and after photos so that you can be the judge.
