It was time for hair cuts.

Especially for Kalen.

Wow, okay.  The picture actually makes his curls look sort of cute.  Trust me, though.  They were a mess.

Tangled.  As my mother would say, “a rats’ nest.”

And not in that cool, just-out-of-bed look that the teenage boys are wearing these days.  Just plain ol’ messy.

Plus, he hated his hair being so long.  He’s been begging for a haircut for weeks months quite a while.

He’s also been mentioning wanting to dye his hair.  Black would be preferable.

Yeah, no.

When you’re in high school, kiddo.

But then…the hair stylist heard his pleas and took pity.

Did you see it?

How about that time?

Now I know you saw it.

Yep, my baby’s got red tips.  What a cool product!  It comes out with shampoo.  More subtle than the sprays you get a the costume shop.  Healthier than dyeing.

Shh, don’t tell him, but I think I’m going to buy him a couple of tubes for his birthday.

Because, really.  Who can resist this level of cute?
