We have tried to let the long hair go. We have been patient with Clayton. But, Joel finally put his foot down. His hair actually doesn't look too bad in the picture below, but we are dealing with a nine year old. Hygiene is not exactly on the top priority list for a 9 year old boy which includes brushing and caring for long hair. His hair has cowlicks, it is course and super thick. It sticks out EVERYWHERE. He told us that only Megan (my cousin-in-law) could cut his hair and we had to bribe him a tiny bit!!! :)
and HE LOVES IT!!!!
