It's just hair!!
Can you mourn hair? I had my son's hair cut and now I'm sad, five months later. I miss it. Will it still be curly if he grows it out again?
Earlier this year, shortly after this photo was taken we had his hair cut. We were pressured, bullied even, to cut my son's hair. Why the delayed reaction? What took me so long to miss his hair?
PRIDE...wanting to think I hadn't bowed down to the wishes of other people who think little boys shouldn't sport long hair. Well mine did and I MISS IT!! All because other people think little boys should have crew cuts.
Not that short hair is bad or that it looks funny, it is still cute. I just miss his curls. His father has short hair and is the most beautiful guy I've ever laid eyes on.
The bottom two photos are now a year old. Now Jet's hair is short and Nick's hair is long.
My hair is almost EXACTLY the same as it was a year ago. But I am growing it out, which is code for really too busy (lazy) to keep it any certain style right now. I can't possibly get my hair cut every two to three weeks, I'm just not that frilly!
It's just hair!
