Long Hair

Patterned Paper, Ribbon, Stitching, Trim, & Stamp: Starbrite Kit by Polka Dot Pixels; Tape: Tape It Up - Noted by liv.e designs; Brush: Splatter by Corelila; Fonts: Carbon Type, Century Gothic & CK Becky

It wasn't a conscious decision, the long hair.  It grew (pun intended) out of my inability to locate a hairdresser that could cut the boy's hair properly.  It always came out too short, too bowl-like, too mushroom-y, too something.  So I refused to take him to get his hair cut.   For about 6 months. 

It was so cute.  He looked like a cool skater or something.  He looked older.  The girls (moms included, lol) thought he looked adorable!!!! 

I loved it. 

Apparently he didn't.

After much whining he finally convinced me to take him for a haircut. 

This is minutes before. 

When they called his name I grudgingly took him over to the stylist chair, told her what haircut he was looking for, and went back to sulk in the waiting area. 

That was back in November.  Almost 3 months ago.  I haven't taken him to get a trim since.  It's starting to get long again. 


This layout is based on this awesome Sketchy Thursdays sketch by the talented Diana!!!!

Love the story about the hair. Isn't it usually the boy who wants to grow it out and the mom who won't let him??? Love the digi layout!
