We are having some pictures taken this Sunday at the house and I am pretty excited, since we really only have one picture of all 5 of us. It’s going to be with a new photographer (to us) that is giving us an awesome deal, and from the looks of her website, I really like her style.
I have been struggling with how/when to get some haircuts for the kids, since Ben and Lily really need a trim. I’m way too chicken to do it myself- I learned my lesson on that one a while ago. But, I also am not sure about taking them myself for a haircut. It might go just fine- or it might not. Is it worth it?
Here’s my thought process:
Pro: The barbershop outing would be a nice excuse to get out of the house for a little bit.
Con: It’s a lot of work to go anywhere with the three of them by myself.
Pro: Ben and Lily would look very nice in the photos with neat little haircuts.
Con: I will have to bring the triple stroller, which could be a problem if the shop is crowded. There could be a lot of gawking and questions which I won’t really be in the mood for if any of my kids are restless and cranky when we get there.
Pro: My dad will stop reminding me that Ben needs a haircut and suggesting that he will do it for me.
Con: It could get really ugly, since going by myself will mean that when the haircuts are occurring, I will be seated with the cut-ee, and there will most likely be no one to entertain the two stroller-bound kids. If they become unhappy during this time, we’ll hold up the process, and I’ll feel guilty.
Pro: Knowing that I am going out will force me to take a shower and make myself look slightly put together.
Con: I will probably be a sweaty mess after putting one kid into their carseat.
Pro: I can stop feeling guilty for being a lazy mom who lets her kids get overdue for haircuts and look like ragamuffins.
Con: I could just wait until I see my friend, Natalie, who would trim their hair for free. But I don’t know when that will be exactly. Or we could just go after the pictures, since Todd is actually off Sunday, but then they will still look shaggy in the photos.
Can you guess what my conclusion is? You’ll have to wait and see the pictures:)
