Hi, my name is Devan and I have a slight obsession with all things Disney. I know every single word to The Little Mermaid movie (not a joke). I worked at the Disney Store through college and loved every day I got to go to work. I am a whiz at Disney trivia.....seriously. Try me. I become infuriated at myself if I miss a question on Disney Scene-It. One day, I WILL work at Disney World. So, when the opportunity arose to take Avery to Disney World last week, I giddily jumped at the chance. So far, I've done a pretty good job of
brainwashing encouraging her to love Disney and Mickey Mouse like I do. I could just picture her meeting Mickey and Minnie and the memories we would make. But, while I was planning our trip to the most magical place on Earth, I discovered a hidden gem. Since I like you guys, I'll share it with you too....in the Magic Kingdom off to the side, there's a little shop called the "Harmony Barber Shop." You can get your haircut at Disney World for a small fee. Big whoop, right? Wait. This little barber shop specializes in BABY'S FIRST HAIRCUTS. When I read this, I almost died. I knew Avery's first haircut just HAD to happen at Disney World. How many kids can say they got their first haircut at Disney World?? I almost peed my pants with anticipation over this haircut. Like most things in life though, the reality of my baby's first trim was so, so, SO different than I imagined. Would you like to see the pictures?
Last, but not least: the picture that sums up the chaotic moment.
Wait. There's a video.
Good thing was though, they gave her a set of Mickey ears (which I quickly had her name added).
Looking back, it was still a magical moment. Avery got her first haircut at Disney World--my very favoritest place in the entire world. She wasn't perfect, but when is life ever perfect? I made a memory with my sweet girl that I'll treasure forever. I just hope she doesn't look back at the pictures and think that we tortured her. :)
