We have gone back and forth about wanting to cut his hair. If we do – we’re breaking some weird unwritten parental rule stating “thou shalt not cut childs hair until 1 year of age,” and then there is some follow up addendum about saving a lock of it.
We get that question a lot, “Will you save a lock of hair.” Yes, yes everyone – I will save a lock of his hair. Though I don’t know what I will do with it later.
Fast forward 20 years:
Me: Carter, look at this lock of your baby hair
Carter: That’s weird mom
Me: You know, I thought so too…but after saving it for 20 years and 8 months…you had better take two seconds to appreciate it and look at it
Carter: ok mom
So after a few very small trims here and there (mainly to remove that weird super long chunk of hair that used to be directly on top of his head…sticking straight up) we decided that he should have at least one trim around his ears.
I did not agree to this type of trim though
