Evan’s hair is such a battle for me sometimes. If he has a normal cut then it’s a fight for him to let me brush it in the morning. I absolutely hate having “that kid” that looks like he just rolled out of bed in the morning & his Mom couldn’t even get it together enough to brush his hair!! (Note: That is what I thought before I had kids. Now I realize that is Mom probably was just choosing to pick her battles & her child’s hair wasn’t the biggest battle of the day!!)
Either way, I like Evan to look clean, put together, well dressed (that does not read nice/expensive clothes, just whatever he wears may he wear it well, etc.). But for about the last year and a half or more, the easiest solution to this battle has been a buzzed head!!
Evan does great when I take him to a salon for a haircut, but can I just say that it hurts my heart & my CHECKbook to pay $20+ for someone to buzz his head!!! That’s crazy to me!! I’ve done the Great Clips thing, the cute little kid places, and even barber/salon shops but when it’s all said & done it’s $20-$25 bucks. To SHAVE the kids’ head!!!
So my husband’s been shaving it for a while now. The only difference is that at home – Evan does NOT co-operated. At. All. Not even a little bit. He wiggles, he screams, he whines & he’s a pill. So our solution for taking it off the top …
This way it doesn’t get in his eyes (because Lord knows he can’t possibly keep them shut for 1 minute!!) and for whatever reason it’s fun to him!! I think he can embody a character that way!! He becomes the mean diver in Finding Nemo!
