Hair today, gone tomorrow

 Alex's hair has been on my to do list for the better part of a month now.  He has beautiful blond hair that grows faster than Rapunzle's and is straighter then a pin.  This means that within a day and a half, he has a section in the back that stands up like a little fan.

I was bugging Tony to take Alex to the barber - but as Tony doesn't really go to the barber, like ever, that seemed like it wasn't going to happen.  So I was quite surprised to return from the grocery store on Saturday mornings and see this:

 My eyes filled with tears immediately - The little man was sitting on the table, covered in a  towel with tears running down his face as Tony patiently clipped his hair.  Tony swears that the tears only arrived when Alex heard the garage door - which is a definite possibility.  Still, this was pretty pitiful.

Tony had done most of the hard work.  I quickly jumped in with a bit of scissors saving around the ears, brow, and neck line and then we washed off a years worth of blond silky hair.  He looks like such a little man now - I was unprepared for it!  I think I would have been okay with the long baby boy hair for a long time if he didn't have that little swirl in the back.  But the more I see it the more I like it.  His eyes seem bigger, his expressions more at the ready.  My little boy is growing up!


  1. Oh what a handsome little man!! He went to Tony's Barbershop - I hear they're the best in town...

    1. Well they're the cheapest, anyway!
