I LOVE Max’s curls. I love how they curl up around his ears. I love how the back is long enough to fall in soft, sweet little rings around his neck. I love doing “the swoop” with his bangs, and the way that his hair fuzzes up in wet waves when he takes a bath.
But my little baby and his sweet baby curls were in need of a little trim. And I swear, I wouldn’t have done it if it weren’t for the fact that Max’s bangs grow STRAIGHT down, and right into his eyes. Of course, if he was a girl, I would’ve put in a sparkly clippy and that would have been that. But when his bangs finally touched the bridge of his nose, and he was furiously swiping at them every five minutes to keep them out of his face, I knew it was time…..
Here’s a little bedhead jammies shot from “before”….. Now don’t get me wrong, all I wanted was a TINY little bang trim. But the horrible witch that cut his hair, who clearly doesn’t have children and doesn’t know how PAINFUL this was for a Mommy to watch, rudely said “Well if we only trim the front, then he’ll have a mullet”. Bitch.
So what’s a Mommy to do?? Let her adorable little boy sport a redneck hairdo and be the laughing stock of playgroup? Sean gently agreed with her, so of course I had to let her cut it.
Max wasn’t quite sure this was a good idea. When she put the drape on him, he started screaming “I’ll wear the sparkly clippy!! Just don’t touch my ‘do!” Hah hah….
