day 360: how to be a cool mom




This is my future DIL giving my #3 a faux hawk last week. Yes, I allow a little hair expression around here. I told him he could have a little fun with his hair until the wedding, when a nice missionary cut would do just fine.

Aren't they both kind of cute?

Your future DIL resembles you. Yes they both are cute and looks like the future DIL fits in the family perfectly.

They are both cuties :)
Hair expression? Never heard it called before, mine is expressing that someone needs to do something with it real soon!

I love the compromise on that one. I'll never forget when my oldest was graduating from high school, walked in and he had a mowhawk. Can I say, I FLIPPED OUT!!!

From all us mom's out there, I would have to say. I want you for a mom because you are the coolest mom ever!!!

Nothing wrong with a faux hawk even on a wedding day! Wait til he wants to exhibit hair expression with facial hair!

p.s. YOU ARE a cool mom!

I love a faux hawk, especially on my little boys. And I figure if I give in on hairstyles now, I can prevail on tattoos later.

Very cute! And it's just hair, right? Why not have a little fun with it. =]

So cool! I WISH my boys would let me do stuff w/ their hair! Not only did I not get any little girls to do hair on, my boys HATE when I make them grow their hair out of their buzz cuts! What is a hairstylist Mom to do?

I aspire to being the cool mom someday...

I think hair expression is just fine too. And yes, they are both definitely cute.

I thought the same thing as TechnoBabe - future DIL looks like you! Wonder what your son thinks about that!

(I'm hoping you're in town and we'll be seeing each other soon, btw...)

They are both very cute.

I'm with you on the hair expression. It's the easiest to change, it grows back, and there are bigger battles to wage.

VERY cute :) And brave.

Very nice! Glad to see another mother lets a little hair expression take place.

Awesome! My boys love fauxhawks.
