Large S has Awesome Hair
Large S has some awesome hair. As he approached one year of age the awesomeness of his hair began to emerge; small curls began to form at the base of his hairline. As he grew older the curls remained and got larger and longer and more springy. Take a look at the pictures and see for yourself:
(1 year old, the curls emerge)
(2 years old, look at those ringlets!)
(a happy curly haired three year old)
(Oct 2010, the ringlets are getting longer)
(Dec 2010, that hair is awesome! Look at all that curliness! It's out of control!)
So, as proven, Large S has awesome, beautiful, curly hair.
Or rather, he had some great hair. Last weekend (while visiting Theric's family) we did something drastic. Something that had me pretty close to tears. Take a look:
We cut Large S's curly locks off. (Well, actually we had Theric's mother do it, she did a great job. It's hard to cut the hair of a wiggly three and a half year old, even if you are distracting him by letting him watch Wonder Pets and feeding him marshmallows.)
I am still in shock about this and I'm still not sure how I feel about it...I think I miss his curls, maybe they'll grow back. He says he likes his new haircut, but sometimes he says he doesn't and that he wants us to stop mentioning it.
One good thing about the new haircut is that it may end the awkwardness strangers feel when I have to tell them that the cute little girl they were asking me about is actually a cute little boy. I've always thought it was his long curly hair that made people assume he was a girl, but now that the curls are all gone I can see that the Large S is just really really pretty.
But I think his snappy dressing may solve this problem. Maybe we'll move to bowties everyday.
