The latest BUZZ

A few days ago, Bill and I were discussing Robert’s hair. The lack of “cooperation” even after it is combed due to some crazy cowlicks and how I really don’t want to take the time to comb his hair anyway when I never have to touch Matt’s. So I went ahead and gave him his first buzz cut last evening to eliminate the issues at hand.

His hair is still so baby fine and looks much lighter when the natural light hits it so he now reminds me of a baby peep with a lot of soft downy fuzz. (The pictures don’t do it justice.)

Somehow, the third time around, I am nowhere near as sentimental about the growing up process as I was with Megan and Matt. I don’t mourn the loss of my baby when he outgrows his clothes or does something so very big boy like. I love the stage that he’s growing into right now and am having a lot of fun with him these days.

His buzz cut was just one more step towards having a full grown, loud stinky boy running around the house. And I’m definitely ok with that. In fact, strangely enough, I’m looking forward to it.

So I am not the only one that does that. I hate combing my son's hair so I buzz it. I get yelled at so by the grandparents. And noone lets me cut my girl's hair.

Yeah, Grammie was definitely not happy with me for doing this and she hadn't even seen it. (I haven't told Bill's Mom yet!) Oh well - our kids, our decisions, right? And it really is so much easier for everyone.
