Today, while my mother-in-law visited, I asked if she wouldn't mind watching my son for 10 minutes as I had run out of baby shampoo. I came back home to see she had shaved his head completely bald. That was his very first haircut. FML

If you don't like her comment just thumb it down. There is no need to be an asshole and insult her. I know I should be doing the same thing to your comment but I felt the need to tell you to stop being a jerk.

Not only was it an issue of first haircut... But you shouldn't be cutting other people's children's hair without their permission period ...

Is she mentally all there? Because I do not know of any grandma that would think that's okay to do. It wasn't even a first hair cut. She shaved all the hair!

I think she would wake up if anyone started shaving her hair. What you could do is cut chunks out of her hair in odd places as close to the scalp as possible.

That sucks OP. You mother-in-law basicly stole a moment you could have had with your son that you are never going to get back. Did she do it on purpose? Do you two have a bad relationship or was it an honest(ish) mistake? Either way that really sucks ={.

I know a mom that freaked out when her husband took their 9 month old to get his first haircut.
There's an old wive's tale that says if you cut a child's hair before their first birthday, the child will become a stutterer. It wasn't true in their case.
And my neighbor shaved their "daughter's" head when she was a few months old because their culture believe it'll make their child's hair grow back lush and thick!

24# Not sure where she's from, but in Argentina the same belief exists. I'm from there and I was shaved the day I was born and shaved a few more times until I turned one. Really, it doesn't make much of a difference, regardless of when you shave or get a haircut for the first time.


That's not the point, though... I see what you mean, but the big deal was that it was the kid's very first haircut, and of course the mother wanted to be there for it. They want to be there for everything: first giggle, first burp, first word, first steps, first haircut... etc. A haircut after the baby's first would probably not have been such a big deal, but the first one is, especially to a mother.


No a mohawk is too cool for this bitchy. I suggest shaving it all, except for having a ratail. For those who do not know, a ratail is the bit of hair on the back of the head at the very bottom.
