How the Boy Became a Man

I began to wonder if Park's hair was getting too long when I saw this:

So, I thought it might be fun to try this:

But after Daddy took one look at the above pic, it prompted him to do this:

Which, ultimately resulted in this:

Goodbye baby, hello big boy. Park took one look in the mirror and said, "I look NICE! I the man, Daddy." What a relief to know his modesty is still in tact.

After catching me crying, he asked me why I was sad. When I told him Mommy was sad that he had turned into a big boy so quickly, he softly reassured me, "I not a big boy, Mommy." As I began to I breath a sigh of relief and marvel at the depth of his sensitivity, he gleefully added, "I A MAN!"

Way to make a sentimental Mommy feel better.

And Sweet P, when you are old enough to realize that I posted pictures of you in pigtails for all the world to see, just remember,

"You the man", son.

Stand tall, be proud, and own it.

He was cute before the haircut. He's ADORABLE now.

Welcome to manhood, Park. As my husband says to my four-year-old boy, "Dude, you're a stud."

I hope you have a little girl as beautiful as her brother next- you're good at those pigtails. :)

One of my daycare dads came in and caught me putting hairbows in his son's hair once. He was not impressed either.

There is nothing wrong with a man being so secure he can sport pigtails. That's awesome!

When you are as gorgeous as he is... you can do whatever you want to your hair and pull off the look!
(Although I imagine the dads who would agree are few and far between!)

Those pigtails remind me of a Christmas card someone once sent out of her two boys in flower girl dresses.

Oh wait. That was me. No wonder we're friends, Brit! I love it!!:)
