My four year old daughter is going to Pre-school in about 2 weeks. I wanted to give her wild locks a nice trim at a salon. I usually cut it myself, so this was a bit of a splurge. So we get there and she wont let go of me. She regressed into a baby, she wouldn't talk or cooperate at all. After about 15 minutes of bribing, threatening and almost giving up, we decide she can sit on my lap. It wasn't working well because she had gone limp and was pretending to sleep. I thought all was lost until this cute little hair dresser handed my Wild Child a mirror. She squirted a pile of moose onto it and showed her how to draw pictures with it. Wow!!! What a turn around. She sat by herself and drew pictures until 10 minutes later her hair was cut and we were ready to go. If you are taking a small child for a back to school haircut, be sure to mention this ingenious idea to your stylist.
