A Quick Post
We've had a minor change around here, but oddly enough, it seems more than that. The 16 year old, E, got a hair cut. I know, you're asking why in the world is she writing about this?! Well, because like I said, even though it should be a "no big deal" thing, it seems to be more than that, at least for me it does.
He has gone from "shaggy"...
... to "faux hawk".
We went clothes shopping for him this past weekend and the clothes he chose are even a bit different than what he usually wears.
Now, I'll be quite honest and admit that I'm not up to speed on today's style terminology, but to me it seems he is leaving the "main stream" look and heading toward a "skater" or maybe even "rocker" look. Not that I have a problem with this at all. I'd be a complete hypocrite if I did. After all, I didn't hang out with the "main stream" kids when I was in High School. In fact, some of my friends were skaters. And E did go through a very quick, actual "Mohawk" phase several years ago, but it only lasted a couple of weeks before he decided it needed to go and had it buzzed off.
So as a mom, I'm really wondering where this is leading to... if it's even leading to anywhere at all. Maybe he's just trying on different hats. You know, trying to find the one that fits him best. And maybe I'm just a little bit over sensitive, but it's feels somewhat bitter-sweet to me. He's growing up SO fast and though I enjoy watching the transformation, he will always be my little baby boy.
Well, I hope everyone has a beautiful Thanksgiving holiday. When I get back I will finally share my Silver Bella goodies with you!
