Mostly, he liked having his haircut b/c there was a black cape involved.
Mostly, I cried.
Mostly, Daddy laughed at me.
Mostly, the barber’s name was Marlon (“Like Nemo’s daddy?)
Mostly, he was amazing and sat still and enjoyed his lollipop
Mostly, I can’t believe we made it this long without a real haircut.
Listen, I just wasn’t ready. I can’t explain why. Probably, because I knew the second we cut it he would look like a 5-year-old….
I was right…
the next day we went to the zoo with some friends who have a 5-year-old and he looked as tall and big and talked as well as that kid and the Big Boy Hipster Hairdo only made it worse.
My baby isn’t a baby anymore….and he will be the first to tell you.
He stand with his arms at his side and slowly raises them up and up and up and says, “watch me….I’m growing” and I swear I can see it actually happening before my eyes.
I just couldn’t stand Reeve’s hair anymore. I was trimming it, LITERALLY, every other day and it kept growing SO fast that it would go from “Did Reeve get a haircut” one day to looking like Lloyd from Dumb & Dumber the next. He definitely inherited Kirk’s genes…Kirk has to get a haircut every week.
So, we went to Floyd’s (the cool shop by our house) and prepared ourselves for the worst.
No need for that now…he was great! Look how ridiculously gross and long his hair was…. Marlon totally “got me” and knew we wanted to do a Toddler Pompadour, but that we needed to “ease our way into it” He loved checking himself out in the mirror. The Black “cape” was his favorite part.
Then we told him he got to have Ice Cream for being such a good boy….he kept touching his head and laughing.
I think his haircut makes him look more like Daddy He was ALL about the ice cream…guess what kind he picked out? Blue Superman Ice cream with sprinkles… Apparently, the back of his head is full of crazy cowlicks and he’s got MAJOR body now that it’s shorter…. Short hair makes his ears look even bigger than they already do….
look at those ears!!!! He looks even cuter if that’s possible. I anticipate we will need to take him every 2 weeks, it’s already grown pretty fast in 5 days.
Next time….even shorter.
