The Big Reveal


Though not nearly as dramatic as his sister’s big chop, today Liam decided it was finally time to cut off his own curly locks (and, in the process, give up his only-recently-won title of Person With The Longest Hair In The Family).

He was planning on cutting it off two days ago (or at least that was the original plan he informed me of back in December or January when I asked if he wanted his hair cut – at one point he asked for a headband to keep the bangs out of his eyes, his hair was already getting so long – and he said that, no, he really wanted to grow his hair out and not cut it until the day after his birthday… in JULY), but when I reminded him of his plan on Monday, he said he wasn’t quite ready… Today, however, he was. Soooo… I brought out the clippers, gave the kid a lollipop, and sheered away; it took almost an hour, he had so much hair! (And also, I’m really slow. Poor kid.)

Honestly, though I’ve always loved the traditional (admittedly a wee bit conservative) buzz-cut for Liam, I confess I got a little teary cutting off those amazingly gorgeous curls of his…

But, hey, at least now I get to see more of that amazingly gorgeous face of his…

So that’s pretty great.

(And seriously, is he cute or what??)

    • It’s true! All three of the kids look a LOT alike; the other day Bill and I were looking at a picture of Liam when he was the same age as his younger brother is now (3yo), and they look IDENTICAL. Of course, it doesn’t help that Broder wears all of Liam’s hand-me-downs, so they’re even dressed the same! Good thing digital cameras automatically date the pictures for me, otherwise I’ll never know who is who when I finally get around to making those baby books (which I *swear* I’ll do before they graduate from high school – really!).
