Haircuts – Fri 31st July 2015

By | July 31, 2015

As the title suggests, it’s been haircut time today.  Something that, as any parent/carer of a child with sensory issues knows, has the potential to all get a bit fraught.

And it did.

But, with T starting to resemble a hedgehog – albeit a very sporty one – and D really rocking that “Neil from The Young Ones” look, it was time.

T’s is always over relatively quickly with the clippers, but it’s a case of trying to catch him before he wriggles away and getting it done quickly because it “tickles” him and he really doesn’t like the sensation of hair falling onto his neck or down his back.

However much he begrudged it being done, it did look good after.

D – my poor D – was a longer affair time-wise.  You’d think it would be easier with her hair all one length, but not so.  

She finds it extremely difficult to sit still, even with her sensory cushion on her chair and there were wriggles aplenty.  Not to mention tears, yelps and some angry moments.  I always use a tangle teezer brush and try to brush it holding the hair away from her scalp so as not to pull on it, (I have horrible memories of my hair being pulled in anger as a child so know how much it hurts) but she was still very unhappy.

Eventually it was “trim abandoned” for the day as she was just too upset and I’ll tidy up the ends tomorrow.

Luckily, by teatime, when we all did our “best, worst and funniest bits of the week”, neither haircut was mentioned, both very much in the here and now.  I’m sure that it will come back at some point.

In the meantime, we’ve had plenty of butterflies and bees feasting in the garden today, I just happened to have my phone and got close to this lovely one:

There were at least two other varieties having some brunch too, lovely to see and every so often the sound of a happy bee buzzing past too.

Have a wonderful weekend Jx
