Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

One of the things I have really been working on as a mother is relinquishing control and picking my battles. I really felt like my parents were so strict that it was smothering growing up. I would rebel just to feel like a little control. So when Jamie announced that he wanted to grow his hair like Zac Efron (see picture #1) I was not really thrilled, but I figured this was one of the battles that wasn't worth fighting over. So for months now he has been growing it out. He has a very thick head of hair so it was really beginning to get bushy and curly instead of straight like Zac Efron. It truly was beginning to look a mess. This weekend though he announced that he wanted it short like Dad's. I asked him why and he said he was tired of the babies pulling his hair all of the time. So here are some before and after photos. All I can say is thank goodness for hair pullers.

Very nice! It looks good! And I'm with you trying to pick your battles... so don't ever judge me for Avery's outfits or hair, ha!

Oh please, Linda has the most "interesting" fashion sense sometimes. I would never judge, and I have never seen her look anything but cute. =)
