And So, Alas, My Son’s Mullet Is Gone (but at least my mom is the one who cut it off!)

As Nik liked to say, Mark’s hair was “business in the front and party in the back!” for many months.  We trimmed his hair a bit in April but Mark really hadn’t ever had a real hair cut.  And, as you may have noticed, it was really long, so long, in fact, that he had started to ask for a clip (like Ellie) so that he could keep his hair out of his eyes.

Here, you can see for yourself how long it was (and hear him assert himself as the almost-two-year-old that he is):

We were just up in Alaska for a week, visiting my family and so I asked my mother to cut Mark’s hair.  I had been dreading this haircut for a long time (hence the mullet) because Mark absolutely hates to have his hair touched.  But, as it turns out, he’s addicted to the television screen and a little video was all it took to keep him mesmerized while Nana cut his hair.
