I'm sorry I let your hair look like a mullet before I took you to get your first haircut. I promise that in the future I won't let it get that out of hand again. I also promise that the pictures of you with a mullet may be more traumatizing than the actual haircut was. It's the mullet that will cause you years of tears. The haircut only caused you a few minutes of them.
The haircut actually started out fairly well. I remember thinking what a calm little boy you were. I was that proud parent talking about how nothing phases you.
Then all hell broke loose.
And it wasn't pretty.
But, honey, it's hard work to look that good. Lesson learned?
