The Mohawk

This is the best picture I have of Jacob's new Mohawk. It was taken after a long day of school so it's a little worn but it still is standing. Jacob has wanted a Mohawk all winter. I managed to convince him to wait until the weather warmed up because his head would be cold and he didn't want to have to mess it up with a hat. Mark was such a trooper he was a reluctant at first, but finally came around and said it was just hair and would grow back not to mention he's young there are worst things in life then a few hairs sticking up. To be honest on a lot of days it's easier to get his hair to stand up then it is to lay down. He has course hair with several cowlicks so it naturally wants to stand up. The Mohawk makes fixing his hair much easier on a daily passes. Sometimes as parents it is so hard to remind ourselves that our children are not adults and one of our goals in life is to allow them to live a happy fulfilled childhood, among other things. To
be honest we have a couple varieties of Mohawks
the pointed and the messy Mohawk. Jacob likes
the pointed one and I like the messy. I'm just waiting for him to ask for us to bleach it or get those colored hair sprays to color it, and if he does we will. He's young and it doesn't really matter yet. The only people he is trying to impress is his friends especially the girls and they all think his hair is really cool. Jacob told us last night that they were counting down to the end of school and there is only 5 week WOW!! First grade has just flown by. I can't hardly believe it, people told me over and over again to enjoy the children when they were little because it goes so fast, and I thought " I can't imagine it going fast", you know the crying, whining, first walking and crawling, not to mention the infamous loosing of the teeth there were days when I couldn't wait for it to end. But as Jacob gets bigger and bigger I can't believe those days are gone. That is when I have to thank God for the wonderful gift of Photography and Scrap booking. I know for those of you who know me I have to bring everything back the scrape booking. Sorry!!!!!! I could go on and on but I wont. Have a wonderful day and remember some battles aren't worth fighting, let them be kids.

I can't believe you were up at 5:39 in the morning to post this post. I love the mohawk and am surprised that Mark let him have it. Do you remember when our brother got a mohawk? It took dad years (it seemed) to let him cut his hair that way.
