still curly after the cut
I have been holding out on trimming the curls. When they first started growing in I thought it was a fluke, they were just baby curls and they would go away. Then as they got more and more luscious I began to get a little protective of them. Those blonde curls are mine and if I trim them they will dissapear and no one will ever believe me that he "had curly hair as a baby."
Granted my kids don't grow a lot of hair as little guys, too busy growing huge brains thank you very much, but he is two years old and I needed to trim off the dead baby hair. So we pulled out Josh's clippers. I put on a 1 inch guard and got to work. I turned out ok.
I wish I hadn't cut it. I miss all that hair, but it will grow back healthier. It's not a hard guess to figure out that this sort of "high and tight" hair cut is not going to be his normal haircut for as long as I am the boss of his hair (till he is 35). I day dream of a surfer like do - that is messy and curly and hangs down in his eyes. One of the pro's about the new cut is that the mohawk if much easier to get done now.
