I resisted as long as I could, but as we all know, that particular strategy is futile.
Today I cut Avi’s hair shorter than it has ever been. And I love it.
It’s easier to deal with under a hockey helmet (surprise), doesn’t have to be combed after his showers (surprise), feels cooler on his head (surprise) and lightens up his entire face (surprise). And I love it. I do, I really do. It’s shockingly different – even he said so (“Mommy, I DO look very different, don’t I?”) but he’s still my Avi Bear.
