I love this boy...

I hate this hair....

It makes me feel terribly old...terribly old and WAY uncool. He thinks it is cool. My stylist thinks it is cool. I think it is a mess. He loves it and begs me everyday not to cut it. Everyday I think to myself (at least once), "that hair...that hair has got to go!" I threaten a cut...a big cut...one that involves a razor. He whines...he BEGS. And, I say to myself, "Pick your battles". So, the hair survives another day. Sigh.

Today was the Pinewood Derby for his scout group. He didn't put too much effort into his car and he was happy to place third in his den for the second year in a row.

He wasn't the fastest.

He wasn't the slowest either.

And, most importantly, he wasn't the shaggiest.

Yeah, if he's actively participating in Boy Scouts, you should probably let the hair thing go... :)

You DEFINITELY need to leave his hair alone ~ it IS cool! It really suits him too. :D (Mum of another bwlh ~ me age 37, him age 12).
