Light-Headed, Mostly On Purpose

I had an appointment on Friday with my fearsomely hip hair stylist, and since I have not performance obligations where I need to approximate vintage hairstyles, I let him cut as he pleased. I’ve always been happy with the results, even when they are far shorter than I would ever have requested.

Right now, I kind of look like Kherington from SYTYCD Season 4, but I’ll get used to it, and my hair grows fast, anyway. Q-ster noticed the cut right away. “I like your hair, mommy! It’s boys hair!”

When I went to hug Buster, he skittered from me and ran to Nanny J. It was time for her to go home, so I went to get his blankie, thinking it would comfort him, and grabbed a hat while I was at it. The micro dude greeted with enthusiasm when I wore the hat, so I kept it on until he was sure I was me.

Later that evening, I tried and completely failed to get a photo of the boys in their matching Little Brother/Big Brother baseball caps – Q-ster refused to pose and Buster kept wandering off – so I set up the self-timer to try to capture a shot of my hair. And what do you know? Q-ster runs into the room, stands alongside me and mugs shamelessly for the camera. I took exactly four photos, and here they are in order (only his side, since they came out much better than my side):

I've had the same reactions from my little kids when I get a haircut. They are Not. Happy. I'm glad that Buster got over it, and I love the photos of Q-ster hamming it up. But I do hope to see a photo of the new 'do soon.
