Here's the before:
She was crying because Jude got to go first and she wanted to sit in the car that he was sitting in for his hair cut. She kept shouting "I ride!!!" through tears.
She did great during the actual haircut. No tears. It took both Dan and I to hold Jude's head for his haircuts at her age, so we didn't know what to expect. We were thankful it went well and even she enjoyed it.
TA-DA!!!!! All done.
When we got home we had another first -- we watched our first full length movie tonight as a family. We watched The Polar Express. I thought the film was a little intense for Jude, but when I'd check in with him while we were watching he'd say that he liked it. After it was over, I asked if he was excited to watch it with my parents when we went home for Christmas. He said, "No, I think it's too scary for Goo Goo and GaGa. We better not bring it." When I asked him what "Goo Goo" and "GaGa" would be afraid of, he started listing various parts of the movie. Uh-oh! I hope he doesn't have any bad dreams tonight.
Here they are watching the movie:
and here's one where you can see Jude's new haircut.
