I can see his face again!

Jock decided to get his hair chopped off. I had forgotten that he has two piercings in his left ear. Could not see his ears, face, neck, chin, etc etc for some time now. He promptly took the earring that he had in one hole, out. I asked why and he said he didn't know. Asked him if he is ashamed to have earrings and he again asserted that he was not sure. So I left it at that. Whatever.

There is a lot more news, but I just wanted to share some photos of my handsome boy. He was letting me know that I was using the camera incorrectly. Something about these shots really struck me. I think he is looking more "teenagery" than he ever has before. He is most excited to hear that, can't wait to grow up. Whereas when I let Brain know that perhaps the peach fuzz on his upper lip could be shaved off soon, he freaked out. He REALLY was not impressed to find a zit on his chin yesterday, either.

I will try to catch up on all of your blogs soon and comment etc. LOTS has been going on here! I am afraid to publish comments without the time to respond to them, or else I never will. Which I guess is not the end of the world, but still. I must go and get Brain some birthday gifts today, since he turns 14 on Friday! Man, THAT is hard to believe.

So I close with Jock, our fountain of wisdom, who takes it upon himself to correct everyone and just all around enlighten all of us.

I recall wanting long hair at that age and my parents not letting me grow it. Then when I finally could have long hair, I realized what a pain it was to care for and went back to the military cut. I think boys are much more handsome with short hair. Must be an old guy thing.

Vince-I know what you mean, but it depends on the boy. When Jock gets mistaken from a distance for his sister...he wants a hair cut! LOL

Brain and Clown look awesome with short hair, but Jock's head shape really isn't the best for it. He and I were discussing it the other day. I told him he had a big round head like me, whereas his brothers were blessed with his father's...I was searching for a word to describe his Dad's head. He helped me out and ventured, "Bean shaped??" LOL I said yes, for some reason, something about the shape of Brain and Clown's heads, they look great with very short, close cropped hair. However, oddly enough, long hair suits their Dad better. Anyway, I am just glad I can see his sweet face again!
