Are you read for this?  (Not sure I am even though it's already done...)  Kenson has been saying for several months that he wants to cut his hair.  He really wants it shaved, specifically with some type of design shaved into it.  I told him he had to wait until summer when we could get into the barber shop and that if it was too expensive to get a design that that he would have to use his own money for part of the hair cut.  This weekend, we took the plunge and started the first part of the hair cut.  The locs are gone.  He has about 1 1/2 inches of hair left but at some point, we'll head to the barber shop to finish cutting it really short.  (Now the part where I tell myself "It's just hair.  It's just hair."  I really like him with a bit longer hair but as long as it's not a battle to take care of it and he is willing to do his part to help take care of it, then he will be able to have the freedom to do what he wants with it.

So here's the before and after.

Very handsome, Kenson!

He looks grown up! My son's hair is short, too. Once he wanted to start growing it out, which lasted a couple months & he was over it. I'm kind of glad b/c he is very athletic & goes at everything full throttle, which results in a very sweaty boy. With the short hair, he can just hop in the shower every night without too much fuss. I cut his hair myself, but other than the edging, no fancy designs yet. Someday! :o)

Oh, that's quite a change, but he still looks so handsome, and looks very happy with the change! :)
