I Can Already Feel That My Life Is Vastly Improved, But I Still Miss It Terribly

First, there was this:

I know. It's a really flattering photograph.

I know. It’s a really flattering photograph.

Well, actually, first there was this:


He made me take a photo of his butt before he agreed to let me take a photo of his face.

Then, a while later, there was this.


Clean as a whistle; sharp as a tack.

I swear, even when he’s just sitting around, he looks less surly than he did with his fuzzy hair. All the same, I feel sad that none of my kids are long hairs anymore, because we all know long hairs are the coolest, but clearly I don’t know how to take care of a child’s hair, so I think we made a good choice here.

Still, I’m pretty sad. It’s a dark day for fuzzballs everywhere.

p.s. It would be GREAT if NO ONE mentioned to Quinn that he got a hair cut. I just smiled at him after he got it cut and he freaked out and ran out of the room. He also claims he’s never going to school again because he doesn’t want people to look at him. So thanks in advance for that.

  1. He looks quite handsome with the new ‘do. But I won’t tell him that. I promise..no words are escaping from my lips. Zip!

  2. since he doesn’t read your blog (yet), he won’t know that I’m commenting that I like the haircut. I find there are 2 issues with haircuts with Evan – the act of getting it cut, and the change it brings when he looks in the mirror. We try to keep it shorter rather than longer know to keep the change in the look in the mirror not as drastic. I think that bothered him more than the act of getting the haircut.

  3. My boys have always had short hair, my husband was in the military so I have to watch him closely to make sure he doesn’t cut it too short every time. And I hope no one mentions his hair. Ashlyn is the exactly same way. If she has anything new going on she doesn’t want anyone to say anything which people always feel the need to do.

  4. A rose by any other name is still nice to look at…even when you strip its thorns. Or something like that. I think he looks awesome. But, yeah, I get it. *sigh*

  5. We go to a barber, who gets it…. or at least does what he is asked! DS gets his haircuts in increments, just take a bit of length off it today, bit of weight out of the top another day. It doesn’t make for snazzy styles like Quinn’s, but it’s progress. I sit at a distance hoping the barber doesn’t ask DS if he wants something more dramatic done, because DS will just agree, while either having no clue what is being suggested or being afraid to say “no” to this scissors wielding stranger. Then we get the meltdown at home and refusal to go to school for the rest of the week. Here’s hoping for no complements for Quinn!
