Let me begin with a disclaimer: Charlie has been asking for many moons now to get his hair 'buzzed like daddy's'. So to those of you who are mourning the loss of this particular part of his persona, I am too. But fortunately, Charlie has charisma to burn, and seems to be making his way just fine as a young Army recruit.
Saydi’s emotional preparation for losing Charlie's luscious long hair was a bit different than mine. All I can say is that he is one good looking little...guy.
My favorite part of the whole experience was when he kept urging me to 'buzz it more' and pointing to the front of his scalp. 'I want it to look like yours, Daddy'. I was both very flattered at his hero-worship and simultaneously melancholy as I explained male pattern baldness to my son. 'Don't worry, bud. This will all be yours soon enough. Enjoy your follicles while you still can.'
