What Has my baby Done?

Time was, when I knew where they were, what they were doing. It wasn't all plain sailing being tied to their needs but...




Life changes, hairstyles change (!) and
JUST LOOK WHAT MY BABY HAS DONE TO HIS HAIR
People reassure me it'll grow back.
I know.
It could be worse.
Please don't let it get worse!

they do grow up fast dont they, i think jessie it shows what a grand job u have done, you have given him the confidence to show his individualism & creativeness. ps. let u into a secret , ... i used to have one of those!! eek and dreadlocks too, when i was an art student of course!!! x x

Good for him! :) I did exactly the same thing when I was 16, better to have him doing it now then when he is 30+ (nothing more embarrassing than a grown up chap trying to have the rebellion he never had when he was a lad). What I find funny is how mohicans and all that are making a comeback, mine was done back in 1983!

Jessie said...

Thanks Ruthie, that's a lovely thing to say, I expect I'll get used to it!

Hi Gretel, It's almost old fashioned in a way isn't it hehe!It is better for him to be doing it now it's true, but my husband is getting ideas now and he's way past 30! I've told him he's not going to though because his own hair style is radical enough already. :D

Love your illustration! Pfft boys will be boys...shame though becuase he had nice hair. My brother's hair was smiliar and then he went to get a silly haircut. It will grow back though :)

Ha ha! Poor you.

I am with him on this though: I had long Alice-in-Wonderland hair right through to my early 20s, but had a secret desire to do something spiky and bright and mad. I never had the nerve.

Now he's got it out of his system, he'll probably do something safer in a bit, you'll see!

His hair will cause sleep deprivation,ha, ha. Then he'll shave it off and start all over again.

Oh my gosh. If you had told me that this was a picture of my son, I would believe you. I'll have to find you a pic. I even have a pic of him with a mohawk. Last week he shaved it off so now he just has a buzz cut. He had the mohawk for a couple of years but they do get tired of spiking it so it becomes a little less shocking. lol

My older son has dreads and I love them. I've never had a kid with "just normal hair!" as my mom would like. (her words hehe)

Here's a link to a pic of my son. I can't get over how alike their faces are from the side. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lisapoole/2631391086/in/set-72157605955531250/

He's just left this afternoon to go to a festival so I won't see it for the next few days. I'm to be shocked by it all over again after the weekend when he gets home! :~O

Kelly said...

It'll grow out. And he might even grow out of it.
It does look pretty awesome though.

Jessie ! J'ai une paire de ciseaux chez moi !...8:)))

Jessie said...

Lisa - just had a look, they ARE very alike aren't they!

Karen said...

You must take plenty of pics. He'll laugh in the future when he looks back at such a memorable haircut.;)
Definitely best done now rather than later and yes I also think it shows freedom and creativity!
Oooh I have all this to come with mine :D x

I love it! it is better to be individual in this world.. I'm so glad that a large number of young people are starting to express themselves again... the adidas thing went on for far too long in my opinion!
