My husband and I have had a few… Discussions about our son’s hair. I agreed that this summer my husband could take him to get another cut. Meanwhile, almost every day my husband would sigh and whine about it being too long.
In a moment of weakness I agreed to let my husband take our son to get another haircut (here’s how it went down the first time). He leaped at the chance before I changed my mind, told me to stay home and and ran out the door mumbling something like “frohawk.”
Shortly after he left I started to regret my decision to give in. But my husband sent me a photo of our son in the barber shop chair. There was no turning back.
I think part of me didn’t think he’d go through with it. He went to a barber shop. I mean… A legit barber shop and took a lecture about taking care of our son’s curly hair. I knew it was coming. Our son’s long locks, though adorable, were getting SO tough to manage since he hated when I’d do it. Starting fresh is nice because I’m able to get him used to daily styling again without the pain that comes from having more hair and more tangles.
My husband told me Big T flipped out in the chair. He wound up having to set him on his lap and hold his arms down while he cried through the process. I know I would have been a mess if I was there. My husband even said it was hard for him to stand.
But as soon as they were done Big T dried his tears and asked for cookies out of the vending machine so I guess it wasn’t so bad.
Then came my own tears when he got home. Ok, it wasn’t THAT bad. But it was an adjustment. Actually just today I can finally look at him and like his new cut. No frohawk, just much shorter curls. I’ve already bought a new pick and I’ve been combing it a little every day so he can get used to what we’re going to be doing.
I can’t decide if he looks older or younger now. He seems older with a big boy cut, but he reminds me of his younger self before his hair grew in.
My husband wants to take him back to the shop and cut the sides down more so he can have a hightop fade… Can someone please help me? Help him? Goodness! Haha.
