Bubby Got His Hair Cut on his Daddy’s Watch…Where’s My Baby?

Ever since Bubby was born, I’ve done everything for him. I only worked outside of the home for 4 months of his life (while he stayed at home and my oldest daughter watched him there). I’ve cooked all of his meals, I’ve done his laundry, cleaned up his room, fed his picky ass little self. And I’ve taken him for all of his hair cuts, starting at about 9 months. But this time, out of nowhere, he wanted his Daddy to take him. I’ve asked B for almost 3 weeks now to take him (I personally think he procrastinated because I’m a tyrant when it comes to Bubby). Bubby never stands his ground like this though, so it was time.
But but BUT…this was not what I had in mind. Make him look like a boy I said. Leave a little length I said. A little layer here and there is good I said. Show his curls I said. Don’t make it too short. Do NOT let it be too short. And…when they got home, we had shaved sides and back and a Great Gatsby look all around. I’m not a fan. I smiled. 
I guess I stared at my Bub too much (with my hand over my mouth) until he finally said “What? Do you have a crush on me or somethin?”. To which I naturally replied, “I’ve always had a crush on you baby, you know that”. And that’s all he needs to know!
He doesn’t need to know that I don’t love this cut, nor this look. He’s gorgeous no matter what. You may even love it. You might think I don’t because it makes him look grown. Truth is, you’re probably right on some level but I’m also not a fan of this style, especially not on my beach baby.
Facts: 1) He’s my baby and he’s lost all of his curls. 2) I think he’s the most handsome little guy on the planet no matter what. 3) I’ll never let B take him for a hair cut again because apparently there is a communication gap there and I want my baby back. 

Yes, I’ll always have a crush on him. Yes, he’ll always be the apple of my eye. Yes, he’s gorgeous with, or without, hair. And he’s totally 2 (in my head). Anyone that wants to argue that is going to have to fight me. It is what it is. He’s growing up way too fast and his daddy needs to stop facilitating it. Stop it. Stop time. Bring my baby back. 

PS – He’s totally handsome and those eyes will break and warm a million hearts no matter how his hair is cut over the years. In the end, it’s all OK.

  1. He’s all grown up. You have to face it.

  2. UGH…he’s is not grown you crazy bunny lady. Do you expect him to get a job…at 5…just because he got a haircut and looks like a big boy? Stop that!

  3. My son got a grown up cut far too early because there was apparently a communication gap at the barber shop and I had to watch the hair fall off my baby’s head. It was traumatizing! I will admit that I grew to love it and never grew his hair out again, but it’s still SO SAD!

  4. I’m sure I’ll let his grow out unless he really grows to love it. I’m obviously more traumatized than he is by this haircut. But still…

    Christy- he looks so stinkin cute and he is your twin! I know what you mean- when they cut Zane’s hair, I all about dyed!

  6. Thanks Mel. I’m taking the twin thing as a compliment but you probably just think he looks like me because of all of those crazy faces he makes. Neither one of us can stop showing our entire emotions with our facial expressions.
