We’ve been talking for a while about maybe possibly probably needing to cut Aed’s hair.
I’ll admit.. I kind of didn’t want to. We got little kid conditioner to see if we could keep those curls under control.. We tried wetting his hair down to keep those curls under control.. I even took the small amount of my spray gel that was left and mixed it with water to use on Aed’s hair to keep those curls under control..
But, alas, all it took was one nap or nighttime to create a mess of frizzy, semi-curly dread locks on the back of my baby’s head. There was no keeping it under control. I had to give in.
But once I did, I was drooling to take scissors to those curls :) I was daydreaming of a little boy with cute curls sans weird dread locks. So.. we talked about cutting his hair a few times with him, and he got the idea enough that he would pull his hair out as far is it would go (almost as if he wanted to confirm that it was indeed, too long :) when we mentioned it.
He climbed up into his big boy chair, ‘all nakey!’ as he described it (he loves being nakey).
And we set him up with a Bob the Builder marathon so he wouldn’t focus on the fact that I was wielding scissors around his head.
|(all nakey.. aside from his stripey socks :)|
Worked like a charm.
I snipped and chopped and cut of lots of little curls.
And I’m so glad I did!
His hair is so cute now that it’s shorter! Unfortunately, he is really not okay with having pictures taken these days. The ironic thing is he still wants to ‘see Aed’ in the back of the camera, but won’t let me take the picture to begin with. Figure that one out.
Maybe if Daddy holds him he'll let me take a picture?
Nope. Not even then.
We spent the next several days ooohing and aaahing about how cute he is. And, other than the occasional ‘Shoot, now I have to do this on a regular basis’ feelings, I am loving the shorter curls :)
