We took him to a kid-only salon here in Reno called Snipits. I am so glad that we did, because the whole experience was amazing. They really are kid focused. When we checked in with the receptionist she handed him a card that he could use for a prize after he got his haircut. The had little statues with spinning wheels and a video playing in the waiting area, all of which were great to keep him occupied. He even kept giving one of the statues a high-five.
When the stylist came over to get us, she immediately started to talking to Elijah and asked him what he liked. She brought out two toy dinosaurs that not only kept his hands busy, but kept his mind off of what she was doing. They also had a little cartoon on about getting your haircut.

|Not so sure about this, but I'll tolerate it for now.|
|Thank goodness for lollis.|
