No Edward Scissorhands

Master Keegan had his very first haircut today. Not at home, because he's my child. So he went to my stylist at my salon. Tom drove up and met us for the occasion. He guessed right. Keegan hated it. Totally freaked out. She was able to do a few snips and at least trim the fluff behind his ears. So if nothing else he no longer looks like Krusty the Clown. She didn't even charge us because it was hardly anything. We had planned on taking him out to celebrate. But there was a 25 minute wait at the mexican restaurant we wanted to go to and it was already 6pm. So Tom walked us back to the car. While he was saying goodbye to Keegan a firetruck roared past us and pulled up right in front of the mexican restaurant. So maybe that worked out for the best. Keegan really likes vacuums so maybe I should just get my hands on a Flo-bee.
