Oh My Goodness

OH MY GOODNESS!

Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!

I cannot Believe it
I cannot Believe it.
I cannot Believe it.

I am in shock.

My 17 year old SON'S hair is longer than mine.
It reaches past the middle of his back.
I would have loved it-- for me--long, wavy and No Frizz----BEAUTIFUL (for a woman)
For him, however, I would have preferred short hair.
I don't like long hair on men or boys. Never have.
But I believe in choosing your battles and there are much bigger battles than hair. So as long as it stays cleans and neat, he could grow it.

Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!

He had a friend spend the night last night.
I kissed him goodnight (my son, not his friend) & (yes, he still lets me) and I went to bed.

I cannot believe it.
I cannot believe it.
I cannot believe it.

This morning he comes out of his room with his hair pulled back in a ponytail. ( so I thought)
We speak, "Good Morning, etc".
He turns and walks away.

THERE IS NO PONYTAIL!!

He and his friend cut off his hair!

All Of It!!

It's VERY short!

I can see his neck!
I can see his face!
He is SO handsome!

He always looked older than his age. I thought a hair cut would make him look younger and closer to his real age. WRONG! When he was 16 he looked 19. With short hair he looks like a MAN!

Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!

I am in shock!

HE IS SO HANDSOME!!

We have a bag full of over 14 INCH, thick, long, brown hair to donate to cancer victims!

I cannot believe it!!
I just cannot believe it!

He doesn't look scary anymore. (he never looked scary to me, but if I hadn't known him and saw him walking down the street I admit it would have made me nervous).

He says he just did it on a whim.
He said he likes it.
I LOVE IT!
I AM SO PROUD OF HIM!

Did I mention how HANDSOME HE LOOKS!!

Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(of course now I can't blame him for the strands of long hair on the bathroom floor and in the shower. I'll have to take all the blame. Small price to pay.)

OH MY GOODNESS!!

I definitely prefer my 19 yr old with short hair, too. Some boys have lovely locks that are thick or curly, mine has straight thin hair JUST LIKE HIS MOM.
