On Thursday March 11th, i decided to finally get Jayden's haircut!
I came to this decision a week or so before and i was set on getting it done as soon as i had Dustin's consent.
Sadly, Dust was VERY against the idea. He wanted his hair to grow out the be the length of Kate Hudson's son Ryder's hair!!!
So for a week i put Jayden's hair to the side with a bobby pin, but when the bobby pin kept sliding out i ended up puting the front of his hair in a pony tail so it would stay out of his eyes!!!
I decided enough was enough and that i was tired of having people coming up to me to let me know that i have an adorable little GIRL!!!!! and i couldnt argue the fact that it was my son they were talking about because indeed he did look like a girl with the pony tail on the top of his head.

It was time to cut his hair without Dustin's permission! I knew he would be mad, but i asked my friend Jourdan to buzz Jayden's head.
I waited till Dust was at school, and went over to Jourdan's. She only had #2 and #4 clipper's so #4 it was.
As soon as she turned on the buzzer, my emotions kicked in. Was i really going to cut my son's gorgeous long, blonde, curly locks!?! I felt sadness, my eyes started to water... this was it!
I gave JoJo the go ahead, and she started to clip away my baby's hair. He cried the WHOLE time!
The noise of the clipper's really scared him (he's even scared by the noise of the electric egg beater, so i wasnt surprised)
When it was all over, i looked on the floor. There was so much hair, just laying there, no longer lifeless on his head. I grabbed a little sandwich bag to collect the remains.
It was now time to tell Dustin what i had done. I took a picture of Jayden and sent it to Dust's phone. Not a minute later i recieved a text. "You didn't!" it read. I could tell my hubby wasnt impressed. "I did" was my reply. "Oh...... My...." he responded. I again explained how i felt so bad that Jayden couldnt see properly because of the length of his hair. It was always in his eyes, and it was unfair to him because he doesnt know how to sweep it out of eyes.
Dust of course calmed down, and came home as soon as school was finished. When he saw Jayden's haircut for the first time he was still a little sad but admitted to liking it :)
It was a big step for me to get his haircut, i knew Jayden would no longer be my baby. He is now my 17 month old little MAN!!! He looks so much older, and it seems like he has a new attitude that came with his new hair.
So much for my promise to post at least once a week! (one month later)
The past couple of weeks have been extremely hectic. Between cooking, cleaning, watching 4 kids, Australian family drama and trying to spend time with Dustin when he's not at school, work and doing homework... I barely have time to catch my breath!
Why cant life be just a little easier?
Its hard being a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, and a friend all at once.
I can not remember the last time i just 'hung out' with friends, had a girls night, or just had a day for myself!
I guess ya just have to have a little cry when life gets hard, and continue on. Right?!
I am blessed to have a great support system though. When times get tough, Dustin is there for me no matter what! He is a pretty dang good husband and an amazing father to Jayden :)
