A Lost Boy Mullet Boy No More

I love my son's hair. Truthfully I had a hard time with the idea that I had to cut it, but I knew the time had finally come. He was being mistaken for a girl. It was long and unruly - it was in his eyes and itching his ears. But I would be lying if I said this was an easy choice I made finally getting his hair cut, silly as it may seem. His long and unruly hair was just so Connor but I knew it was time.


I decided I definitely wanted to go with a place that specialized in kids' hair because I wasn't sure how he would do. So I found a place and just went with it. He is just about to turn two and he understands a lot but knowing what we are talking about when we tell him that he is going to get his hair cut just isn't one of them. He would mostly just point to his hair and say 'hair.'

When we first got there, he wasn't sure what was happening but he chose the Batman car - good choice kid - that was playing Mickey on the TV in front of it. And almost immediately he tried to bail out. He didn't want to wear the bib despite our attempts to convince him it was a cape, so we just went with it. He was going to get his hair cut like it or not.


He tried bobbing his hair to avoid her touching his hair. He tried to swat her hands away until we had to kind of hold his hands and just plain distract him with other things.




But we got through it and it went well. I wasn't sure what I wanted exactly for his hair cut so we got something basic that just shortened it up. Truthfully I don't love it. I will definitely go shorter all over next time but it's better. Although I do miss his long hair that I used to play with while he sat there with me.



He did good overall for his first time (which happened to be the first time either kid had their hair cut because Addie's is still just growing). She was fast and did well with him bobbing and moving so much so we will definitely go back again but I have a better idea of what I want next time which will help.

But truthfully it's still pretty unruly. Short or long hair that's just Connor.
