A Shaggy Summer Story Ends

Back in the spring, I made a deal with my boys: after much complaining and wailing and gnashing of teeth, they could grow their hair all summer. It took all my self-control to keep from taking the clipper to them some nights in their sleep, but I did it- I honored my promise. Today, the bill came due. We started out like this:

  1. Like you, I have discovered that hair is not a battle worth fighting. There are far more important parental stands to take.

    So, are the boys missing their longer hair, or are they satisfied with their summer of hair growth and willing to submit to the clippers?

  2. Bean is relieved to have the shaggy gone- Jeffrey is ticked that the lady didn’t leave him a little bit of his curl in the front, but it grows fast. I am just so happy they won’t be shaggy dogs anymore.

  3. I want to cry, you had that beautiful red hair cut!! Actually I don’t blame you that would drive me crazy too. But oh, their hair, I wanted a red headed baby so bad. I even threated to dye the next one’s hair red ( that was of course when I was planning on another one).
    We used to do the summer mohawk but PJ told me this year he was too old for it, it made me a little sad.

  4. They almost look like different boys! I can’t let my sons hair get to where it passes over his ears and it’s even that shaggy- but he’s 3 and won’t have opinions on his hair for at least a little bit. I just might have to grit my teeth when he’s older and learn to give in just a bit.

  5. I got this website from my pal who informed me concerning this web site and at
    the moment this time I am browsing this website and reading very
    informative content at this place.
