Oh no! Not again!

We did it again,   we have promised not to fight Ben about his hair.  We truly  believe there are other things in life that are more important than his hair.  He is a great kid, respectful to others and doing very well in school.  So who cares about the hair right?!

Well,  Andrew and I decided he needed to have a cut.  We really wanted it cleaned up, our thoughts were about 2 inches.   So Friday evening,  I took him to Great Clips  (Andrew swears that was our 1st mistake).  The stylist barely took a 1/2 inch off.  I knew at the time, it need to be shorter, but I let it go.    (2nd Mistake)  When Ben and I got home, Andrew and I decided Ben need to go back.   (Mistake #3)  My expectations were another inch or so, unfortunately,  she completely layered the back.   I saw it happening, but couldn't really do anything at that point.  

Ben is so upset,  he wore his hat all day yesterday.  He seems a little comforted by the fact that is will grow.  He swears that it will take 2 years.   Unfortunately he might be right; check out my post from July 2008.   Almost exactly 2 years ago.  

This time I did not torture him with a picture.   I snapped one while he was still in the chair.  You can see his reflections in the window.   After the dust has settled, I post a photo.

    Oh my, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that struggles with these types of dilemmas! My son has cried the last two haircuts..... and I just don't know what to do with it.... Hope he feels better about it soon! :)

    Oh my gosh, this made me laugh (Sorry Ben). I think it is a HUGE acclomplishment that you got him into the chair to begin with. Joram would not even think about that.
    Which reminds me: He needs a haircut too.
    Thanks for making me laugh: I needed it!
