One Tradition I'm Willing to Let Go
Last year Stomper begged and begged for a mohawk and we finally decided to let him get one the week school let out. Not one to be on the forgetful side, Stomper requested a repeat this year. Last year his hair was pretty short and we gave him this wide thing - ugh! It looked so trashy! Like this little flap of carpet or something. Well, this year his hair was quite long and we narrowed the 'hawk and spiked it. He still had his face paint and oh man, I think I don't want to keep this tradition going. It's actually a little painful to take him places. And frankly, I think the hairdo affects his personality - he was so surly! I was pretty happy to have Troy slick the thing off on Saturday morning, but now Stomper is very sad. Apparently he doesn't care for being bald. I, myself, am just glad to not feel that I need to purchase a selection of wife-beater tank tops for Stomper to match his rockin' hair 'do.
