On a side note:
As I'm writing my last post about Oldest Boy's graduation ceremony, I get a phone call from Middle Boy. Today was his last day of school, and he's hanging out with some of the guys on his crew team, at one of the boy's houses. Here's how the call went:
Me: "Hey Middle Boy, what's up?"
MB: "Is it okay if I shave my head?"
MB: "We were all going to shave our heads. Well, actually, so & so is going to shave an arrow on the top of his head, but I'm thinking I'll probably just shave mine the same length everywhere."
Me: "What about your big birthday party next week? I was planning on taking pictures?!"
MB: "Well, let me see how so & so's hair looks, and then I'll decide what I want to do."
Now, I live in what I would call a "Hair Household". We all take our hair pretty seriously around here, there's enough bottles of product to fill our swimming pool out back. For a child of mine to say he's going to shave his head...well, it's a pretty shocking proposition, it's just not something we do. Ever.... We. Never. Do. It.
Please Lord, don't let them shave a birthday cake onto Middle Boy's head...
