So here’s the deal. Caroline and I are flat-out blowing off our baby’s hair. And by Caroline and I, I mean just Caroline. Because she calls the shots on that one. And by baby, I mean toddler. (Luke’s 19 months.)
Oh. And by blowing off, I mean refusing to cut.
And while I don’t really know why, I can tell you two things about the situation.
First – I’m good with it. I mean, baby hair, right? It’s soft. And curly. And kinda fluffy. And cute (if not just a teensy bit funny looking). And since this is our last baby (five is plenty, thank you very much), we may as well enjoy baby hair for as long as possible, right? Because once you cut it, that’s it. Poof. Gone. No more curls. And without them, it’s just not the same baby hair anymore. So, since it’s last call, we’re letting it ride a bit.
But thing number two? It doesn’t matter how dude-ish his outfit is, everyone mistakes our little boy for a little girl. To the point where people will be all “Aw! Look. Daddy’s little girl.” AFTER I’ve already told them he’s a boy!
All because of my guy’s hair. The hair we love so much. Which has me wondering — what his hair will be like in the future? Will it be standard, like his brothers’? Or will the unconventional hair of his toddlerhood manifest itself via a little boy who desires to have a unique hairstyle in the years to come?
Well, just in case that’s what’s in store, I thought it’d be prudent to google “kids haircuts” to see what all was out there. Here are 10 of the more interesting ones I found (all on the site hairfinder.com) along with my thoughts on each one.
