One of my favorite things about this summer was Christian's hair. That may sound strange, but I really loved it. We didn't cut it all summer, and it got crazy long.
Even at the beginning of June it was in need of a trim, and while we were at my parents' house we talked about it several times...but just never went and had it done.
I love how it flipped out from beneath his hat.
It didn't seem like a big deal that his hair was so long since we were headed to the beach anyway. I thought he would look pretty good, with surfer hair.
Really, it didn't seem that long. Just a little bit over his ears.
When he came up out of the water the first thing he would do is take his fingers and flip his hair up, so he could hear. He had these funny wings over his ears most of the time.
The days passed and it got longer and longer...I loved it though. I love the shaggy, beachy, wild look. It seemed just right.
By the time we arrived home, it was longer than it has ever been. I asked him if he was finally ready for a haircut, since we were home and we had to get ready for school anyway. He said yes and then said,"I want a buzz cut."
This wasn't the first time he had said it, actually, but I didn't think he was serious. I got on the computer and showed him some examples of buzz cuts. He pointed to David Beckham and said,"I like that!"
Well, who wouldn't?
I said,"You like his hair?" He assured me that he did, and that he wanted to do that to his own hair. Cut it that short. All off.
So...we went to the SuperCuts.
And we told the lady,"Buzz cut, please."
And she took her buzzer and she revealed Christian's eyelashes
as well as his ears, and a smile.
Not that the smile wasn't there before, but I do think he likes the buzz.
And as much fun as I think his long summer hair was, I have to admit the buzz cut is pretty cute.
