#2 Anger - Okay, he's not angry yet, but he'll get there.
#3 Bargaining - At this point, Tate is a little angry. He's pleading "All done! All done!" and I'm pretty sure he'd give up his blankey forever if I would just put a stop to this haircut.
#4 Depression - Okay, now he's full out crying. The crocodile tears have made their appearance. Even though the haircut has lasted all of three minutes, I'm feeling guilty.
#5 Acceptance- Phew. Haircut's over. And Tate is just getting a glance at his handsome self in the mirror. I'm pretty sure he decided it was all worth it.
As soon as he got his sucker, the tears disappeared. Along with all memory of the haircut. What is it with kids and suckers?
