I picked up a pair of barber scissors today at Meijer. In a flash of self confidence this afternoon, with Dave holding her still, I gave Icie her first ever haircut. I have been avoiding/dreading this moment for a long time. The dead ends had to come off though. I cut it dry so I could really see what I was doing. After we were done playing outside I washed Icie's hair and combed it straight to check my work. I did a pretty nice job, everything lined up nicely.
Now that she understands that there is nothing to fear about getting her haircut, I'll take her to the salon for a real cut before school starts in the fall.
