So this was Tai, yesterday evening. His hair was slightly damp, and it was curly and adorable. But it was also hanging in his eyes most of the time and it was hard for him to see. I've been debating what to do about it for weeks. More. Leave it long? Cut it? I went back and forth, back and forth. Finally I made a decision.
How the hell did he go from baby to Boy in 3.2 seconds? I cannot even believe it. I have been looking at him all day today and wondering where time went. Of course, a big part of that is because he starts preschool tomorrow morning. I cut his hair for school - I didn't think he could see with it the way it was. Clips didn't stay in his hair, it didn't stay behind his ear... it just hung over his eyes and he didn't really even push it away much.
This morning I asked him - 'do you want to get your hair cut, or do you want to leave it long?' I didn't put the cut second, because sometimes toddlers just default to the second choice. He said he wanted it cut. So we went out to Kids Cuts and he picked out a car to sit in and watched Thomas the Train and after less than half an hour it was done. I got teary, but he didn't even seem to notice.
I did save a couple of his locks of hair.
Also - I got back on Parlodel today. It's time to think about a second baby, so it's also time to get the prolactin under control. Change is in the air.
