Enough of our little boy being called a girl :: not that it was really so much of an issue for me. It does mean we can't dress him up like this anymore! I'm getting used to it slowly, slowly. He doesn't quite look like someone I know. When he talks to me in Ari's voice, I've been wondering who is this boy in my house, this boy holding my hand, this boy who is talking, laughing, smiling like my boy. So, I guess I'm getting to know him differently, anew, fresh. That's always a good thing for such an everyday intense relationship between mother and child.

Anyway, he seems to really like it. He says it's good. So, that's it then. The baby hair is gone :: does that mean my baby is gone? Oh, I hope not. We're going to find out!

Ari's hair was so fine and soft and curly and wispy and long, fluttering and flopping in his eyes, mouth, food.... Running my hands through it, combing it with my fingers. Seeing that messy mop every morning sticking up all over the place. Now it's velvety, dries in moments.... short short short!


  1. Oh my gosh that's a big change! I have to say that I like it short. I love being able to see his sweet little face.

  2. My boy had long hair until he was 8 1/2 and now he's nearly 10 and I'm still not used to it. I want him to grow it out a little bit because I just don't like it so short. It still breaks my heart when I look at pictures of him before he first got it cut ;o(

  3. Oh, and doesn't it make them look so much older??? It always takes me a few days before I get used to them looking two years older.


Thank you for your words and thoughts. I do so appreciate each and every visitor to my blog. While I try hard to reply to your comment, it often doesn't quite happen..... know that I'm sending you a thoughtful thanks xxx
