One of the first signs of spring has visited our house… Three out of four of our boys are once again sporting buzz cuts. It’s not secret that I cut my own hair, and in the summers we buzz the boys as well.
The lone holdout right now is our six year old, whose hair has recently garnered compliments ranging from people telling him that his hair “looks like gold” to someone saying that it’s “delicious.” As long as that keeps up, I suspect he’ll want to keep his hair. The good news is that his hair grows the slowest of the four, so it still hasn’t gotten shaggy.
What this means in practical terms is that we now only have to worry about one case of raging bedhead before getting the boys out the door to school. And guess what? The boys love this as much as we do. No more combs running through scraggly hair, much less of a rush in the wee hours of the morning, etc.
