Oslo's April Fool's Day
This is my little boy, Oslo. He is 4 and is such a little surfer dude - well not literally, but his hair always makes everyone think he is.
Oslo's favourite thing to do is cut. He loves cutting in the garden and sometimes he cuts plants I rather like, but they grow back so I try not to get upset. Last week, he tried to cut my lovely office chair, so I confiscated the scissors for one week. Today was the first day he was allowed to use scissors again.
The reason everyone thinks Oslo is a surfer dude, is because his hair is naturally streaked blond on top of quite dark underneath, and it is always really long. At least it was until this morning. As soon as he got his hands on the scissors, he ran outside and cut a handful of hair off - right in front!
He was happy until he saw himself in the mirror - then he cried and begged me to glue it on. I told him I couldn't so he cried for me to tape it. I told him it would grow, just like my poor little plants that he snipped off a little too short.
So I would like a little advice on what I should do. Should I just leave it to grow, or should we get him a buzz cut so he looks sporty rather than surfy? Please leave a comment in the box below!
