haircut anyone??

...not for this boy! Allow me to explain! My son has NEVER enjoyed haircuts...anybody else deal with that? We were forced to stop taking him to barbershops back when he turned 1 1/2 due to his all-out FEAR(I'm talking extreme!) of haircuts. Not sure how it all began, but I will say that at one point, we were at SportClips and I really can't go into details about the embarrassment we faced that day! Sad, I know. He literally foams at the mouth, goes into what I like to consider the "crazies" until it's O-V-E-R. So, what is my solution?? We have opened a barbershop right here in the McClellen house! Ha! It starts off okay, until you turn on the clippers...
Here would be where the "crazies" comes into play...

Now, look at this dramatic face(not sure where he gets this from??!, maybe his mother?)It's O-V-E-R and back to calmness we go! Yay! Another haircut accomplished! I must say it's a little better, no foaming at the mouth this time, just lots of spitting from the hair getting into his mouth! If you ask him why he dislikes haircuts SO much, his answer will be, "the hair itches, the clippers are loud and I don't wanna have one ever again!"...and I promise we do not hurt our child in any way during this procedure and we stop when it gets WAY outta control, but why do I feel like the only one that deals with this haircutting issue?? HEEEELLLLLPPPP!!!
P.S. This would also be why Jacob has had a "buzz" haircut for as long as we can remember...this is the best Mommy can do! Any suggestions?
