The Haircut Ritual
Though I realize, of course, that a great many people do manage it, the thought of tying to wrangle long curly hair on a squiggly bouncy two-year old gives me, personally, the heebie-jeebies. Not to mention, short-haired girls are adorable. Hence, we have a short-haired child, and hence we have an every-few-months haircut routine, complete with a chair and a towel and wet comb and scissors. Mabel is astonishingly good for this ritual, the actual hair-cutting is surprisingly easy (curly hair being almost infinitely forgiving), and the end result is pleasing as heck.
