dueling scissors

I cut Sim's hair tonight. She now has little bangs. They look ok but I wish they were a bit straighter. And, the rest of her hair isn't long enough to really do anything with so she's got a growing out sort of look. I didn't want to do it but it had to be done due to Sim's barrette eating habit, which has been driving me batty.

It's really hard to cut a baby's hair as they swivel their little heads around a lot and bat at the scissors, etc. I gave her a pair of child safe scissors to play with while I cut her hair because I figured if she had her own pair of scissors then she wouldn't be grabbing mine. That seems like a bright idea, right? Unfortunately, it didn't really work. She just used her scissors to bat at my scissors. Daddy watched us and laughed because he said it looked like we were dueling with scissors.

If she's a heavy enough sleeper, you might try cutting her hair when she's asleep. Otherwise, you're right cutting baby hair is really hard! It was the most loathed job when I worked in a salon and because I was "good with kids" I got to do it all the time. Eventually you get really fast and you realize that straight is relative.
