he got hair down to his knees

So, here’s the thing. With summer comes heat and with heat comes perspiration. Decreasing perspiration is the key to a happy summer. With that in mind, please don’t hate me for helping my son enjoy the summer a little more. His head has been so sweaty on the few warm days we’ve had so far, and Noah and I wanted to help him out a bit. So, we did this:

Before …


… and after.

(sorry it’s so blurry. he was itchy from the haircut.)

Do I miss the curls? Obviously. But I didn’t buzz his hair for me, I did it for him. He likes it. And maybe this way not so many strangers will want to touch his head in the grocery store.

    With or without the curls your son is looking so “grown up”.
    I see petunias.
    Grandma Braam also has petunias at her doors. She just loves them and now a bird has built a nest in one of her flower baskets and she is watching the coming and going. There are four eggs.

      That is so neat! I’m going to see her in a few weeks, looking forward to seeing the nest as well now. :)

    He looks cute either way! His curls will grow back again over the winter. He’s preciously adorable!

      Yup, they will. We buzzed it at the exact same time last year, so this time next year his hair will be all long and curly again. :)

    Just adorable! That grin is huge. He looks pleased about his haircut. I cannot believe strangers try to touch his head, strangers are crazy.

      It’s kind of creepy. People I know, I’m ok with. Strangers? HANDS OFF MY KID.

    I would rather touch a buzzed head. They always feel very nice

    • Jen Wilson Wednesday, June 25, 2014, 11:45 am

      They DO feel nice. :)

  • Joanne Wednesday, June 25, 2014, 10:38 am

    Awwww, he is so grown up! No hair for the summer makes perfect sense to me.

    • Jen Wilson Wednesday, June 25, 2014, 11:45 am

      See? Exactly!

    His cheeks look chubbier this way and thAt is NEVER a bad thing.

    • Jen Wilson Wednesday, June 25, 2014, 11:45 am

      Agreed. :)

    Such a cutie, and so big! Thank you for letting go of the curls for his comfort. I know someone who isn’t willing to do that, and it drives me crazy. :)

      I can’t stand to see him all sweaty when there was an easy way to cure it. :)

    He is such a doll!
