Someone isn't very happy


We go through this every summer. During the school year, I don't care about the boy's hair as long as I can see his face. But eventually it gets so long that shopkeepers start referring to him as my daughter, and people mistake him for a girl fairly regularly. He loves his hair long, but once it gets too long, it starts getting very poofy and out of control, and then he starts whinging for a haircut.



Yesterday was the day. I bought him in to get his haircut and he told the stylist he wanted it shorter, but still long. She gave him a semi-mullet. We were horrified. Once I got him home, I took a scissors to his head and cut the sides and back so at least he looks less like he comes from a mountain tribe in the Ozarks. Lordy, a mullet in 2006. What was she thinking?

He is not a happy camper. He asked me last night if he could borrow a razor to shave his head. No, I think not. But something needs to be done. He's got big hair on the top now, and I think we need to thin it out some.



Poor kid. He said, "I don't have beautiful locks anymore. I look so bad. Oooohhhhhh."


It's not THAT bad, is it?

Naw, it's not bad, but shaving your head for the summer's not bad either...

Honestly? He's just beautiful. You'll love me for this, but I kinda like the longer hair. But on the plus side (for you, not him), he looks younger now!

Heck, he could shave his head, he'd still be gorgeous. As long as he doesn't lose all his strength, like Samson.

(And I figured out how to comment on your blog again--still think it's bizarre that yours is the ONLY one in which I can't open the comment window by clicking on "comment," but whatever...I right-clicked on "comment", then selected "open in new window." Et voila.)

I'm tempted to buzz my hair very short in summer. My wife won't let me - she worries that I might get called to do a television interview the next day.

I'm thinking a gray fedora will do wonders if that comes to pass.

Some days, I wish I would just go bald already.

He looks just fine as is...I'm sure the post-tweak pictures are even better.

Darn, your kids have one face.
