Before and After

“Sit down, little feller.
Make yourself comfortable.
We’re gonna make a new person.
Would you like that?
Well, you’ll be a while new
young person. No...no, it won’t
hurt. Other than a tuck or nip,
here or there. That won’t
bother you, will it? Well, then.
Good. I think we’re all ready.
We’re gonna make you into
that fine new young man
i told you about. Didn’t I
tell you about him? Well, well.
Sit straight now. Don’t move,
and I’ll tell you all about him.
I think you’re gonna like’im.”

  2. Right, sweet both ways. I remember my Son's first haircut like it was yesterday. Now he'll be turning 13!

  7. From the looks of the first picture you would think he couldn't get any cuter - but then he did!
