We are two working mothers — Lauren Rose, the director of business development for Name Bubbles, and Betsy DeMars, the assistant managing editor at The Saratogian. Try as we may to be really good at both, balancing motherhood and career can get pretty messy. As professionals, work schedules and mommy schedules often collide. So, we plow through, hoping at the end of the day, our kids — Lauren's 5-year-old son and Betsy's 11-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter — know how much we love them.

Our family's version of Beiber Fever

My son's first haircut was more like a trim. It took us three years to get to that point. The three of us (my son, myself and my husband) have this thing about my son's hair. I can't really explain our collective attachment to it, but we sure do have one. Thankfully, we have a very patient stylist who specializes in cutting children's hair. Miss Michelle is the best.

We met Michelle Daus initially at the kid-friendly salon Scissors of Oz on Ballston Avenue, now the home of Swagger - a salon for men. Michelle recently refreshed her business with a big move to the east side of town. Now, across from Five Points Deli, Shear Magic is THE place for kids cuts in Saratoga Springs, NY. Our son enjoys getting his hair cut, and actually looks forward to the Saturday morning ritual once a month.

Last weekend we decided we'd consider a shorter haircut. This was a BIG step for us. Michelle worked her magic on what's now referred to as "The Bieber" in our household and kept Kenneth entertained like only a seasoned nanny or Mary Poppins could. "She's like a kid whisperer", I said to my husband as we watched her work her magic.

So cute. Hair salons are fun for my boy. That's my husband's story though ... I don't do it justice.

I used the kitchen scissors on his bangs once. Once was enough. Back to the "stylist" we went!
