Can someone loan me a shoulder to cry on?
I'm so sad right now :cry:
yds turned 1 last month so he is still so little. His hair is beautiful. Golden blonde and shiny, delicate and baby fine. It's getting thicker everyday. The front is a cute length but the back was getting really long. None of his hair fell out after he was born, it just started growing longer. He looked like he had a mullet, seriously. A lot of people joked about it. But I love his beautiful hair. Well, today I decided enough was enough. So... I trimmed the back. I took about an inch off. It was simple enough and it looks good, as in it's even and everything. But now my heart is breaking. I want his hair back. It's so ridiculous. I didn't cut it that short. Just a bit above his shirt collar. It looks really cute. So why am I crying right now?? :blush:
Has anyone else ever felt this way?

Not about a haircut. But, I was absolutely heartbroken when I moved my daughter's crib mattress to the lowest setting. You'd have thought I had to send her to boarding school.

So, I do understand sorta.

DD's hair is the same way, except dark curls. I'm glad she's a girl b/c I couldn't bear to cut it. :hugs:

I understand. When DS#2 was 7 mo old, my DH decided it was time to shave off all of his curly black hair. I took pictures and cried for 2 days that no one would ever think my baby is cute again! LOL

With DS#3 he is 2 1/2 and has only had a couple of trims. I just can't bring myself to cut off the gorgeous curls!!!

Yep... My DD1 is 39months old now, and has never had a hair cut, even though she DESPERATELY needs one! It's blonde, thin, long, and getting terrible split ends- which makes it tangle and get frizzy. She needs close to 2-3 inches cut off, and everytime we talk about cutting it, I start tearing up and have even full out cried over it. It's just a mess, and 1/3 of the length isn't even showing in this picture- it almost reaches her bum!

And now, my DS's hair is getting funny too- he has red/blond curly/wavy hair. He was a preemie, and most of the hair in the back rubbed off from laying down so much- all except one patch, about an inch wide, that goes from behind his ear down to his neck. It's almost 3" long (like the front/top), but then the whole back of his head only has white fuzz. If you look at him from one side, he has a mullet, and from the other, it looks like a fade :giggle: But it's not bad enough to change... yet. I'm sure I will feel just the same when that time comes.

I cut my ds2's hair when he was about 2 1/2. It was curly & ADORABLE!!! I sobbed at the hair cutting place...they all thought I was nuts. He's now 4 1/2 & his curls are just FINALLY coming back! You can imagine I thought for 2 years that they were gone for good. I'm praising the Lord they're back!!! I swear, I'm never cutting them off again! I'll trim, but not cut! Just know I'm with ya, Mama! :hugs:

Aww, thanks mamas :hugs: I'm still kinda sad but at least I know I'm not crazy :giggle: It was just an inch or so and it does look cute so I'll recover eventually.

You know I don't remember this being so hard with ods. Of course what little hair he did have when he was born all fell out and took a while to all grow back in. He was quite a bit older when I first cut his hair. That's probably the hardest part, yds is just a baby still. And he was a little preemie so he's small which makes him seem even more baby to me.

*sigh* At least I know it will grow back. And it really won't take that long. At least that's what I keep telling myself ;)
