I am trying to tell myself hair is just hair, right!?!
Caleb has a fascination with his daddy. I’m so glad because Matt is amazing. Ever since Caleb could talk…he has wanted to have a hair cut like his daddy. Matt cuts his own hair and cuts the boys hair, so Caleb has grown up seeing the clippers/”beezers”. He has wanted Matt to use the “beezers” on his hair cut for over three years. I have never allowed it. Scissors only! Let’s face it. It is adorable that Caleb wants to have a hair cut like his daddy, but he has better hair than Matt. Sorry Boo! 🙂 Caleb has amazing curls. I couldn’t let them get cut! Even trims have been hard for me!
Well, the boys’ hair was perfect 24 hours ago. They both had a little length that gave them that cute, rough boy look. I love it. We were all outside and they are running around, riding bikes and wearing helmets and just sweating like crazy. The dreaded “haircut” conversation came up again. Caleb looked at me and was practically jumping up and down asking to have his hair cut with the “beezers”. As I watched his long curls be plastered around his cute, red, cheeks I caved. I caved and said he could have a hair cut that wouldn’t be as hot. ahhhhh his excitement was crazy! I told Matt he better get started quick before I changed my mind.
Of course Caleb getting a hair cut made J want one aswell, so I sat there in a chair with my girl and could barely look up because if I thought about it too much I might have gotten teary eyed.
Caleb went first and he we joked all the way through his cut on if he would be the same after getting his hair cut. I asked him if he would still like spicy chicken or if that part of him was getting cut off. He just laughed! Such a cute boy.
Caleb literally giggled with excitement all the way through his cut he was so excited!
J has perfect hair as well. I have always thought I wish I could have one of my boys hair but not a crazy mix of the two! Caleb with his curls and J with his perfect, thick, straight hair! I love it! I love this length too. To me it was perfect, but I went with their desire and let the “beezers” come out.
One reason why I hate for J to get his hair cut is because he is HORRIBLE at getting his hair cut. We always give him a sucker to try to help keep him still, but he scoots and moves the whole time. His cut always seems a little “chopy” or “uneven” because there is no way to cut a moving target evenly.
As I look at the boys now, they look so much like twins. When they are sitting down, both with their short/straight cuts it is hard to tell who is older. Now that I have been staring at them for over 24 hours with their new doos, I am a little more use to it. I still see my sweet, cute boys. Hair is just hair! They are still just as adorable…its just a new look.
Here is to being able to say “YES!” at times so they don’t grow up feeling like they always heard “NO!”
Hair is just hair…right!?! Excited for the day it grows back…and Matt “loses” his “beezers”.
