Busy Day at the Barbershop (Photostory)
Typical Saturday afternoon at Jason's barbershop. It's packed and he's working hard to get caught up. Rod has the boys with him to give Danielle a little break. He and Julian will both be getting haircuts.
Jason is just finishing up with Randolph.
"So how's that? Close enough for you?" (Jason)
"Yep, that's good." (Randolph)
"So what do I owe you?" (Randolph)
Randolph pays, and heads out.
"So who's next?" (Jason)
"Let's do Julian first." (Rod)
"Alright. Hold on let me go get my booster chair." (Jason)
"Okay half-pint. Hop up." (Jason)
Jason waits while Julian attempts the climb up. In the end he grabs his hand and pulls him up.
"So what are we doing today? You want to try one of the new mohawks?" (Jason)
"Naw, I promised Danielle I wouldn't do anything crazy. Just a shape up today." (Rod)
"Hey Daddy, I can see you in the mirror." (Julian)
"I can see you, too. Now you're going to have to sit still while he cuts your hair." (Rod)
"Alright half-pint, look straight ahead." (Jason)
Julian obliges and Jason gets to work.
"I wonder if we shouldn't get you a little shape up, too?" (Rod)
"Well I guess the little one has spoken." (Pierre, secretly hoping Jacob does not get a haircut today. He's been waiting too long as it is.)
"That's his new favorite word. I've had to hone my negotiating skills to work with a 2-yr old." (Rod)
"Daddy, is Jacob getting a haircut, too?" (Julian)
Jason cringes as Julian quickly turns his head to the right. Cutting little boys' hair is always a challenge.
"Julian, you have to sit still or you're going to end up with a bald head, and your mom will kill us both." (Rod)
Let's just hope Julian doesn't cause any irreparable hair damage, or he could be leaving there with a lot less hair than when he arrived.
