There is an update for the ongoing war that has been brewing in our home. The parents have won! After much thought and consideration, my son realized that the internet game he has been pining for is more important to him than the hairstyle that he has been trying so hard to keep. It truly was a hard fought battle. He deserves a medal of honor for bravery and showing great integrity when finally admitting defeat. We are very proud of him. However, we are feeling very smug ourselves as we prepare to say WE WON!
The above pictures are before and after shots taken this afternoon. As anyone can see, he really needed a haircut. This could not have come a moment to soon. As we will be visiting grandparents over the next few days. I am pleased to announce that his eyes are blue! Something that we had not seen in a while.
We did in fact stay rather frugal on this haircut. We took him to Cost Cutters. Although, the last time he got a haircut he was 10, he had the child rate. Now he is 11, we had to pay the adult rate for a cut. Oh well, you won't hear any complaining from me. The hair is cut, and I am sure the battle will begin again in about 6 weeks. Wish us luck.
