I Got Weepy Over His Hair Cut

I’m serious. I had no idea I was going to get emotional like this. I don’t know what’s happening to me.

Lucas got a hair cut on Friday and as soon as the women put her sissors to my sons hair I LOST IT. I don’t know if it’s because she started cutting before I was able to tell her what to do (although, it was pretty obvious. Trim it up and get rid of the mullet) or what, but I got a surge of emotions fly though me like electricity.

You should have seen my husband. Ha. The look on his face was brilliant. What is wrong with you?? And I’m just like, I don’t know what’s wrong with me!! I don’t even care about his hair! 

{Oh. Let me back up here a bit and give you a mini run down of how the hair cut went. Ready go. Lucas had been needing a hair cut for a long time. A LONG time. He was getting a mullet and I am not down with that. We had been talking about it for weeks and then finally a women at my husbands work (who also cuts his hair. at school. pretty fancy.) work was able to do it. We didn’t put a “cape” or anything on Lucas and he did SO good. She had one but thought it might make him freak out so we just did it without it. The nice janitors hadn’t made it to the classroom for after school vacuuming yet anyways.  It took her all of three minutes to do it. He had one hershey kiss and played with my phone when I wasn’t taking pictures with it. I can’t believe how good he did!}

I just immediately started crying and kept saying Okay, don’t make it too short. You look so cute! Not too short! Squuuueeeeeeeel!!! Aaaawww!! Look at Yoooouuuu!!

I then followed him around with my camera (phone) trying to get a picture of him. The pictures don’t do justice, but let me just tell you, He. Is. Adorable. He looks older which makes me weepy and happy and scared all at the same time. He looks young and innocent which makes me want to cuddle him. He looks like the cutest blonde hair blue eyed boy I have ever seen.

Me. Puddle on the floor. Melted.

  1. OMG. This is so hard for me to read w/o crying myself!! My Lucas is in desperate need of his first hair cut too! I've been putting it off “because it's not in the budget” but its going to have to get done next month. 😦 He's only 16 months old, but in the back it is long, like a girl's and on top its still short & fine…so major mullet. Also, the back is so funky it is just staticky & sticks out all over the place!! AND I KNOW I will be a ball of tears, bc I'm pregnant! Your Lucas looks adorable!!

  2. My daughter is really close to Lucas' age and in need of a first hair cut herself. However… I trimmed her bangs a few weeks ago (her hair was literally in her eyes all. the. time.) and thought I was going to die. So I know how you feel, and you are braver than I. My boo is still rocking her mullet, lol.

  3. I love haircuts! It always makes them look so little all over again. It certainly is sad the first time though! I wish mine would sit still like that for a haircut, but we do ours at home, so maybe the squirm b/c of that.

  4. I totally would have been crying, too. I cried for my daughter's first haircut, which was just a bangs-trim, really.

    Hell, when my daughter was a couple of weeks old, I was getting my haircut and somebody else's little boy was having a first haircut and I cried!

    Totally normal.

    Also, my partner says that fresh haircuts make little boys look like men, and make men look like little boys 🙂
