Recently Aaron cut his hair short again. He does this quite often and I love it. The next morning after he cut his hair Big boy was in awe of his new hair do and couldn’t stop asking for his own new hair do. I DID NOT want to cut his hair, so we dropped it and Aaron went out of town and I was hoping he would forget.
Oh no. The very first thing he said to Aaron when he got home was “can I get my hair cut like yours daddy?”!!! No lie it was the FIRST thing he said. We tried to drop it but it would not drop. Finally we decided this would be our first time to use our parenting plan … PRINCIPLE over PREFERENCE. For us, principle will be more important than our preference. It was our preference that he NOT cut his hair but it was against none of our principles that we choose to follow as Christians! So, we gave in and he got his hair cut. Now you know that Little Boy could not be out of the action and had to do whatever his big brother was doing.
So the other night we all gathered around the patio outside the buzzing sound of the clippers began. Here are the pictures to prove it:

My babies don’t look like babies anymore. I know that this will shock some of you and it’s okay if you don’t like it. Believe me it is taking some getting used to. If you could have seen Big Boy’s face when he first saw it you would know it was worth it. He looked like the happiest kid in the world!
