what have i done?!

Apparently I wanted to start the week off in the most depressing way possible. What did I do this morning? I cut my baby's hair. His angelic golden curls, while torture to drag a comb through, were so beautiful. And now they have been chopped off. By me. He used to look like this:

But now he looks like this:


Now he looks like every other little chubby blonde boy out there. On the plus side, people will now know he's a boy. (You'd be amazed how many people think golden curls only exist on girls!) But. Those curls. Gone.

I. CUT. My little boy's curls. I miss them so much! It's going to take me a while to get used to this.

Ohh, that's really cute though. You did a good job! And the curls will grow back, they will.

girls have long hair, boys have short hair. girls wear pink dresses, boys wear blue pants. girls sit quietly and nicely, boys run and are noisy. End of story.

I was bald until I was over two. Even when my mom dressed me in pink people would tell her what a cute little boy she had. sigh.

Oh! Love the curls. But a little "taming" is necessary every once in a while. They will grow back!

He is still the most adorable boy, curls or not.

I am sad to see the curls gone but he looks great! Defiantly more grown up... but I know you probably didnt want to hear that!
