I love the bowl cut on little boys. Even better, I love running my hands through those golden locks at night during bedtime stories. The bowl cut served us well, Mr. Boy was born with a very pronounced stork bite* and the bowl covered up his storkbites.I always said, we'd lose the bowl when Mr. Boy started Kindergarten, but the bites were still there, so we let it stay. Mr. Boy is a bit stubborn and resistant to change (he gets it from his father.... not from me.. no way... I'm flexible and FUN!) The last few haircuts we've tried to talk him into different hairstyles and he just wouldn't do it. Enter Aunt Cinnamon (yes, that's her real name), she can get him to do ANYTHING. She brought over her friend Linda to cut his hair, after telling him... "oooo how fun would spikey hair be!"This picture of his hair in clips is just for blackmail purposes when he is 16 and thinks he is hot stuff. The best thing about his new haircut is the versatility.
Spikey! The handsome man
Cross between Eddie Munster and The Fonz. (he always ask to have his hair styled like this after a bath. He says it makes him look "sleek".)
His personal fave appears to be the Faux-hawk.
*Stork bite =in layman's terms, a birthmark that fades over the first few years. Name comes from the idea of the stork delivering the babies, and giving the baby a kiss in the form of a little love bite.
Flashback: When Mr. Boy was born, the doctor told us that he would be born sometime between 6-9pm, based on the way labor was progressing, probably closer to 6pm. Mr. Boy was born at 9:01pm, as though to prove a point, that he comes into the world on his own terms, and on his own schedule. His stork bites were very pronounced, and he has several. When he was wheeled into the NICU, the nurse admitting him said, "Oh baby boy... you were either very naughty, or that stork just loved you so much, she didn't want to let you go, because you got NAILED by that Stork. She really did a number on you!"
