I think we have a problem!

J decided recently that he wanted to grow his hair. For any of you that know my son, you know that he has what I call "Brillo pad" hair, and a LOT of it at that. Bless his heart. Genetics threw him a bad one when he got my hair, but he is a boy and doesn't have the luxury of a straightening iron. When I pour water over his head to wash it, the water literally runs off the sides of his head and doesn't even absorb into his hair.

Okay, and let's be honest here...

Although he is starting to grow into it, the child has a large noggin.

A big, thick mop of hair is not going to help him out in the large head category.

Plus, as noted earlier, it is a pain to wash when it grows any longer than a #3 with the barber shears.

That's a lot of information, I know. But, I needed the therapy this morning!!!

And, here is the point of my rant...

Last night in the bathtub:

Me: How long do you want your hair?

J: I just want to let it grow.

Me: Is there someone in mind that you want your hair to look like?

J: Yes, Karson.
Me: But, his hair is not that long.

This is Karson in his Kindergarten class.

J: No, Mommy. Karsyn V.

This is the other Karsyn in his Kindergarten class.

Um, I think we have a problem.

Well, if it gets as long as Karsyn #2, then he WILL be able to use the straightening iron! Sounds like he has a plan to me!

Your comments about the noggin reminded me of this:
