difficult child got to grow his hair out all summer long. (I don't despise long hair on boys, just not super crazy about the not being able to see eyeballs.). With school starting he had to get a hair cut because at his school his hair can not go past his ears or touch the collar of his shirt. His counselor told him she would like to see how much hair was cut, so to ask the barber to sweep it up and put it in a Baggie for her to see. (I found that really awkward.). So, for him it was a great idea and we carried a Baggie around with us for a week in case he was in a good enough mood to get a haircut. He really despises people touching him in general, and combing his hair and the barber collar/ gown (I don't know what it's called, a cape maybe?) the whole experience he says feels like he is being strangled and forced to watch it in a mirror. Yesterday we couldn't wait any longer so we bebop into a barber shop. The lady was awesome!! I told her that he was going to flinch and make questionable facial expressions but to know that she was not harming him. Thankfully she has a niece who is Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) so she kinda knew what to expect. difficult child was a PERFECT gentleman and answers all questions with yes ma'am no ma'am please and thank you. He did however want his head shaved. Mom vetoed that. He has a pretty head but God did not give him that fabulous color of hair for us to shave his head. in my humble opinion. (His hair is dark brown with natural auburn highlights. It is some pretty hair for a boy. ) He got a little boy haircut ad it looks fabulous!!! He even smiled at the lady and told her she did a great job. She swept up all the hair and it filled a quart Baggie. Smh. Flash forward 45 minutes til now, he hates his haircut, I never listen to what he wants, I love pcs more then him, and I shouldn't have let the lady cut his hair because she didn't do anything right. Anybody else's kiddos do this???
