Question How can I cut this? Would you?

We are considering cutting Avery's hair tomorrow, but the thought makes me want to cry. Would you cut it or leave it? It doesn't seem to bother Avery and I like it, but I think DH is tired of him being mistaken for a girl

So should I cut it?

It's beautiful!! I wouldn't touch it, but I'm sure he'll be cute with whatever you decide.

Beautiful hair. I can't blame our dh for wanting to cut it. I hated people calling my girl a boy when she was covered head to toe in PINK! LOL
he's adorable btw!
I say cut it ONLY if you want to.

Aw I love it! I would leave it. When Ethan was about 18 months old he had cool Jedi hair. I went out to get my hair cut, came back, and DH had given him a bowl cut!

I voted cut it short! I love short haircuts on kids. It's so much easier to take care of!

Ok, I'm not going to cut it short. I just can't do that yet, I like his hair too much.

My hubby says to leave it long
I do to but I like long hair on boys. I get so sad seeing little babies with buzz cuts.

Re: How can I cut this? Would you?

I vote leave it. My parents guilted me into cutting Kearnan's hair when he was little and I always regretted it. Even more when he started screaming like you were murdering him every time you took him to the salon. We finally just said enough is enough. So from 2.5 - 7 yrs he had no hair cuts at all (I would trim it a touch to keep the ends nice, while he was sleeping he was so traumatized by it). He finally decided to cut it this year. He had never wanted to before but we found out after he did that the 1st grade teacher at his new school had been pressuring him to cut his hair. She actually told him that he couldn't be a boy if he had long hair. But that is a whole diffrent issue. She and I are not on good terms, and probably never will be.

I left Tharen's hair alone. I did nothing with it (other than washing and brushing of course) for almost 3yrs. I decided that I would let him decide how he wanted his hair, when he was ready. I do love long hair on boys, but I also like the idea of letting them make the decision about their own hair. It's almost symbolic of growing up when they decide on their own to have that first hair cut. He decided shortly before his 3rd birthday that he wanted a mohawk. And that is what he has. I was sad to see his long hair go, but he is cute with his mohawk. And I love that he is so proud of it. He's had it cut three times now (his hair grows really fast) and he still loves that he got to decide.

Re: How can I cut this? Would you?

Leave it....I love long hair on boys/men and your DS has the perfect hair for the more fashionable styles right now.

A lot of people mistake DS for a girl and it gets a bit annoying (mainly because he's dressed head to toe in spiderman, firetrucks, blue, ect) but when he was about 3, he had no problem correcting people about his gender. Plus, his daddy has long hair, so it's no big deal.

Here's what he looks like with a "stylish" cut (I see a lot of teens with it like this).



And here is is with it growing out (I like it better in the first pic and he's long overdue for a haircut!).
