Speak up boy...a lesson learned!

For those of you who read my blog regularly know that Payton's hair has been a point of contention for some time now. Last week it finally came to a head (hehe, no pun intended!) last week! His hair has gotten so long that is was always covering his pretty blue eyes. Well Bobby finally got sick of it. He took the boys to walmart after Jr. golf last week. Bobby told the lady that he didn't care what she did except he wanted the hair out of his eyes. Well that was a pretty general instruction. What she did was just horrid and Bobby knew it! But he asked Payton what he thought and Payton said he liked it. Bobby knew he didn't but he wanted Payton to be the one to speak up, it was his hair after all. I guess he was trying to teach Payton a lesson. Before they left the store Bobby gave Payton one last chance to speak up and Payton again said it was fine. As soon as they got into the car Payton finally spoke up. By then Bobby told him it was too late and that he should have said something in the store. Bobby also wanted me to see this horrid hair cut! His sick, I know! I tried my best to keep a straight face, really I did. It was bad! It was a bowl cut and mullet in one! He tried everything to make it look better. Payton wet it, moussed it, gelled it but nothing made it look better! Finally, Bobby broke down, not before a few pilgrim jokes, and finally admitted to Payton it was not a good cut and he took him to get it cut once again! The following are the progression of pics from long hair, hippy boy to pilgrim to the cutie pie, blue-eyed boy we love! The bad cut pics are actual self portraits by Payton in the car on the way home. Faux-hawk pic by dad!

Don't get me wrong, I loved his long hair, just not in his eyes!

I can't believe Bobby paid money for this!

I love this pic! His eyes are so blue!

He looks like his dad in this pic! What a handsome boy!

I couldn't help but laugh when I read your post. My kids have no problem telling people what they want (I wonder where they got that?) Bethany has cut her hair twice by herself and I've had to try and get it fixed. Chelsie once donated her hair to locks of love and had a terrible hair after they cut it off. It was all I could do not to cry in front of her. Payton looks great and depending on how fast his hair grows you won't have to worry about it for a while!
