When 5 Year Olds Make Decisions

He has been requesting for weeks....
Mom and Dad have been very hesitant because we knew what would happen.
But THIS 5 year old was determined....Determined to be BALD.
*Parenting Tip: Do not let your 5 year old make decisions that will alter his self confidence in 3 seconds flat!


Excitement


Sporting the "OLD MAN" Action


Really Really Sad....


The what have I done???? Face.

I know..I know, Mom of the year right?


30 CHEERS from the Crowd!:

OH. MY. GOSH! Tarah, that is priceless, PRICELESS! This is going to be the best tool EVER in your parenting tool bag. One word. Remember....???

{Kimber} said...

haha!! give 'em what they want!!
still adorable!

He & Me + 3 said...

I absolutely love the progression of faces. He is a hoot. Well, now that he has that bug out of his system. Guess he will always keep his hair. :) Unless he goes bald when he is older:)

Kelli @ RTSM said...

OMG! That is a seriously shaved head! Maybe it will grow back quickly:)

Nikowa Lee said...

LOL! At least it'll grow back.

Beth E. said...

Hahaha! Oh, boy...boys and their decisions! He's such a cutie...I think he looks adorable. Both of my boys got their heads shaved every summer for about three years. They said it was much cooler that way.

Hair grows back quickly, so it will all work out. Tell him to hang in there!

The pics are great...the middle one is a hoot. ;-)

Mommy Lisa said...

OMG. I totally agree with your letting him do that! Hair is the last thing you should fight about with kids in my opinion.

I love how he changed his mind AFTER...

Courtney and the Boys said...

Holy Moses! Those pictures are absolutely hilarious!!! He looks like a little old man with all of it shaved off the top but still long around the sides. Hysterical, my friend.

Darcie said...

I agree with Tracy at the top...you got all the power again. He will not soon forget, or should I say...YOU will not let HIM forget soon! At least it grows back, huh. :-)

Kim said...

He looks adorable. My son loves buzz cuts but everytime I cringe and everytime I end up liking it. Your gusy could pull of any hair style he is way cute!

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh my gosh. he is SO cute. Even with that bald head : ) Hilarious!

My sister shaves off her 2 year olds head because he is so horrible when he gets haircuts and it is like the ugliest thing EVER! This is actually cute.

No way you could beat me for Mom of the year. I make like ONE ZILLION mistakes a day! Trust me!

Shana said...

OMGosh! Baw-hahaha! I bet he listens to you next time when you say something might not be a good idea!

The Real Me! said...

Oh have mercy! It's hair and it WILL grow back in time. LOL! That's what I tell myself when I cut the boys hair a little too short. LOL

BeLoVed AiMeE said...

this reminds me of my boy Jack when he was four he demanded for quite some time to be bald "like grandpa martin" so we shaved his head and he looked in the mirror and cried lol. kids too funny~!!

Cathy said...

Oh man, those pics are awesome. I love the first one. He'll get used to it...or it'll grow back.

Bridget said...

Too funny and too cute!!

McCrakensx4 said...

Too funny cuz we have been shaving our boys' heads bald since forever!!

Mc Allen said...

Brooke said...

Wow! He was brave! Such a cutie!

Andrea said...

Believe it or not all three of my boys wanted to be bald at about the same age and like you, I let them. It will grow back, quickly. He is precious with or without hair.
Hugs,
andrea

Carrie said...

Oh Tarah! He is still adorable as ever...you're such a great mom for letting him make that decision all by himself! And it will grow back...it's really amazing how fast it grows back :) His face cracks me up...so sweet!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

That is awesome! I have a friend who let her son go bald too! I mean, it's only hair, right?? LOL

Leslie said...

Umm, the baldness + those glasses = TOTALLY ADORABLE!!!!!

Kameron said...

It'll grow back! The progression of the pictures is hilarious!!

christy rose said...

Oh my goodness! All of those pictures are just priceless! And I think he still looks absolutely adorable. I cut Jacob's hair this week too. All his curls? Gone!!! :( But at least people have quit calling him a girl. LOL I have pics up right now too if you want to stop by and see my baby turn into a little boy before your very eyes. :)

Together We Save said...
