Hair

Let's talk hair at the Jerome household....why not, on a dreary, snowy western PA day. Growing up, I did not appreciate my hair. We three Shippy girls had dark and curly hair....oh, how I wanted straight and blond, like my "Bouska" friends (I also wanted to be tall like them too, but that never happened). After three children, my hair straightened a bit and now.....well, I would LOVE my curls in all their glory back. Darrell just wishes he had his hair back, curly or not. So now, all three of our children have the thick, curly hair. Ann-Marie still appreciates her curls because it makes her different and she gets compliments on them. Evan, being nine, has now decided that growing his hair out shaggy, like the teenagers he knows. I was surprised when Darrell agreed to this (him being the retired military guy) but he commented, "Let him do it as long as he has HAIR!" (Almost sounds like a line from "VeggieTales.") So Darrell took Evan into our favorite barber about a month ago for a "style" his curly, thick hair could grow into. I have to say that I like it on him. For some reason, Alec wasn't able to go to the barber that day and I don't think we've gotten his hair cut since before Christmas......he has had lots of positive comments on how everyone loves his curls, but this morning I couldn't take it anymore. He had to get it cut! So (sorry Ron the barber) Darrell took things into his own hands (or clippers rather).....

before.....
during......
and after!

Don't worry, for all of you getting used his longer hair....it will grow back! But this is much more manageable now.

Awww....Alec's such a cutie he looks good in ANY hair (or none at all) Funny, b/c I just cut Noah's hair yesterday...couldn't take it any more.
