There have been many a battle on the home front about how the boys should wear their hair.
While I try to be realistic that it is only hair…I am a product of my raising. Military haircuts were all I knew. I did not have brothers but I am a firm believer that girls have long hair and boys have short hair. Dated and antiquated I know…but it is what it is.
Noah is the only boy in the tribe who really really bucks me on this issue…I have gotten better over time…but I still cringe as his hair gets bushy and long.
It was with much delight that I took the picture below :)…okay it was more than delight it was sheer glee and joy.
Noah had gone to the barber shop on his own (brownie points earned for that alone). He called Nick to see how he usually got his hair cut..and I guess he lost something in the translation because the end effect was that the barber just shaved his head. Such a beautiful head that it is!!!!
Noah was quite upset but a very good sport as I took pictures and rubbed his bald head for luck.
It may never be easy but it will always be worth it.
