    The haircut stand-off

    G needs a hair cut.

    This is my opinion anyway. S, unfortunately, is not in agreement. While our little guy is as cute as can be, he’s growing a baby mullet on the back of his head. I’m ready for his locks to be trimmed, but S isn’t and until he gives the final OK, I’m patiently waiting.

    For S, it comes down to a control thing: having no hair of his own to manipulate, he’s chosen G’s locks to control. I think my husband is damn hot in how he looks, but if he needs a head of hair to feel in charge of, fine!

    I am, however, not taking this battle sitting down. My weaponry of choice? Hair clips! That’s right. Hair clips! If G’ll have the long girlie strands, I’ll take the girlie approach to hair management. I was a little saddened when the tech at our big u/s announced we were having a boy, ONLY in that I would never get to braid his hair, but hey, turns out I had nothing to feel saddened over. I’m on my way to getting my braiding dream. Here’s G sporting one of my clips to school today.

    Doesn’t he look pretty (pardon the yogurt all over his mouth)? Where I put one on, S takes it off behind my back. It’s a passive aggressive battle, but kind of fun. (Little does S know I’ve got only about 2 dozen floating around the house and and least 4 in my purse.)

    I am also not above the pink-bow head-bands (anyone got one they can lend me?) or doing pig and pony tails.

    S, can I win yet? Please????

      I love the clip and think that G’s hair is adorable. I totally agree that your husband is hot just the way that he is!

      Well, Mike and I laughed outloud on this. But we know what to buy G for Christmas. More hairclips!! He is cute! Georgie can braid his hair too

      We have the same standoff going! I think I need to put jasper’s hair in a ponytail to get my point across.. but Jeff does have a full head of hair, he just claims that J’s long curls are adorable.

      Mullets rock. If you grow them long enough, you can gather them in a scrunchie.

      It’s clear that S needs to do a blog post presenting his side now 😉

      oh my gosh this is FUNNY!!! You crack me up!

      Joey and I are disagreeing on haircuts right now! I just want Bright’s hair to look the same but shorter and Joey wants to give him a full on man haircut! He won’t let me make an appt, he wants to do it himself!! eek1!!

        maydaygirl, good luck to Joey! If Bright’s anything like G, there’s no keeping his head still for even a second… unless you sedate him that is. Well… let me know how it goes!
