The "Hawk"

Oh boy. Stomper's friends' mommies are not going to like me very much, I'm afraid. Too bad. What is summer for, I ask you? Weird haircuts, that's what! Stomper asked me if he could get a mohawk. I thought about it and decided that if Stomper wanted a mohawk he could darn well have one! Well, that is, he can have one from Monday to Saturday night. I don't think I'm taking Stomper to primary with a mohawk. So tonight Troy took him on the back porch and tried to give him his desired hair do. Frankly, it looks a little weird. Okay, trashy. It just needs to be a bit more of a mullet in back and he'd be set. And truthfully, Stomper was a little disappointed. Troy finished shaving his already very short hair off and Stomper asked, "Okay, now can I have a mohawk?" I think he was thinking of the big tall punker-varieties, and we had to explain that just because we shaved the sides of his head bald doesn't mean that the middle part will be long and spikey. We'll save that look for next summer, I guess! And now I kind of can't wait for Saturday night to get rid of the thing.

i think he would get away with it for primary. just shave most of the back and it's rather military-ish! he looks awesome!

That is such a mild mohawk, it almost doesn't count. Now let him do that when his hair is much longer and we'll see how cool of a mom you are. :) Our most fun hairstyle was when Christian was due for a major haircut anyway and it happened to be Crazy Hair Day at school. We shaved half of his head super short and left the other half -- then finished the haircut that night. THAT was some crazy hair!

I've been begging Jonas to buzz his hair, but he just refuses - despite the huge tangled mop that sits (stands up) on his head every morning!
