Don’t Take My Mullet

Gus suffers from the same hair style that his bro did at his age: he keeps it all business in the front, and party in the back. He’s like Joe Dirt.

Out in public or hanging with friends, we’ll occasionally get comments on that mullet. Things like “cool hockey hair”, “hey kid, nice beaver paddle”, and “awesome ape drape, little buddy.” That tyte mullet is obviously the first thing total strangers notice about him.

Despite all this, I love that little wisp of hair so much. It’s soft and curly, and it’s the last little bit of hair he was born with. You know that those curls will never come back the second I cut them off.

Please don’t make me cut the mullet. I love it so! It’s totally obvious that this problem is mine and mine alone. It’s just a sign of me not wanting my baby (and most likely my last baby) to be a kid just yet. That’s normal, right?

He may keep this mullet until he’s 40 if I get my way.

    Totally understand, boys have it the hardest… it’s less “socially” acceptable to have the long hair than the little ladies. I kept every last bit of my son’s hair when we gave him his first hair cut – we waited as long as possible and he had quite the long wispy-hipsterish hair but it was starting to get in his eyes.

    Stay strong mamma! With that second one it is so hard to let go of them growing out of their “baby-ness” and more into the busy toddler/little people they will become.

      Good to know I am not the only one :) It is hard to start recognizing my little guy as a full fledged 18mo old toddler, and I still call him a baby. I gotta get over that soon, but just when I’m ready.

    Keep it!! I love a baby/kid mullet. We have had and still sometimes have them over here too. Don’t let go, not yet mamma.

      Yes! Strength in numbers. I will lock those scissors up :)
