MM's hair

Is his hair. I don't get too worked up about his hair, because it's HIS hair. But...
It's kinda shaggy. He's got a permanent case of bed head.

Last night, after he got out of the shower. I asked him if I could have fun with his hair and, when he said "yes", I brushed it into a DA. For the last fifteen minutes of the day, he looked like a miniature Fonzie.

When he woke up, it was back to Harry Potter.

I gently suggested we go to get it cut. But when he said "no", I didn't push it. It's his hair.

But, lo, it is shaggy.

It's hard, but Rosie and I are taking the same approach, even though older son Sam's hair is about 2 bangs trimmings away from a mullet, and younger son Gerry's hair is like a strawberry blonde version of mine, which gets curly and unruly as it gets longer.

heh. I've been having some interesting battles over D's hair,but not with D. My ex really wants him to have it 'neat'. D really wanted to grow it long. I said that as far as I was concerned, he could do what he wanted with it. It's his hair. Still his dad insisted on 'neat' and short. There was a lot of resistance until about 2 weeks ago when D decided that he'd shave it all off to raise money for lukaemia in The World's Greatest Shave. So now there's no arguing about it.

Well, if he ever needs a more mature pseudonym than Muffin Man, you could switch to Shaggy Boy.

whatever happens to hair, it is survivable. he's not going for unnatural colors or a mohawk at this point, and we survived that. i'm a big fan of picking the more important battles.
