Now that the boy is a year and some change, I think its time to give those golden locks a buzz, or at least a trim. Mr A has been surprisingly resistant to the idea! People have started mistaking our son for a girl, but not even a question of manhood could compel my darling husband to trim those curls! I wonder why he's so anti-haircut?
I started putting his hair in ponytails in an attempt to drive home the reality of his androgony (the pink barrette was a bit overboard - but drastic times call for drastic measures) and Mr As only reply was that the baby looked like a "sumo wrestler!"
Hair grows back. So do I cut it when Mr A is at work and let that be the final word or should I just let it grow because, in the end, its not that important to me anyway? ..and that ponytail sure is cute.
