The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
she's always saying "i'll never EVER cut my hair mommy, but we have to lift it up so i don't pee on it." :LOL

I probably could continue to cut it myself - her hair is so curly mistakes wouldn't be obvious.
When I first cut it, I took it all into a high ponytail and snipped for a layered cut. I also did a little freeform on the side. She has no need for bangs - the curls take care of things.
As with all parenintg plans- it is subject to change.
He is ALWAYS getting mistaken for a girl, but I think it is so sweet!
Once my friend did it for me (looked great)
AND............I did just take him to the beauty salon and have it cut! because his 2nd birthday was comming up and i wanted it to look EXTRA GOOD, but really, my friend did a better job.
DS has never had his hair cut. *ONCE* he has been acknowledged as a boy... a day DD talks about often! LOL. She will be like, "and once we were at the mall and someone thought Nate was a boy!" Actually, I think the woman was talking about someone else, but we believe it. I love his soft curly baby hair. We have said we would cut it at 2, but that is fast approaching, so we might just wait until he decides. DH is growing his out, but it is so curly that after 10 months it is still really short. DD has the shortest hair in our family, though, she is proud to tell people!
I love DS's "baby" hair and will be soooo sad to see it go, as I assume it will some day. I just about cried watching DD get her major hair cut (when they put it in a ponytail and then snipped the ponytail off), I know it will be even harder with DS!
Beanma~ I also have the problem of dd's hair getting in her eyes. she has beangs, but it's the rest of the hair that is the problem. Maybe I should layer it. As it is, it's all the same length.
Troll? Here's me...

There are two traditions that call for not cutting the hair before the age of three, Jewish and Anthroposophical. Not perfectly clear on the reasoning, but someone mentioned cutting strength (like Samson). The Jewish tradition as I understand it is to have a celebration at the age of three, and everyone takes a snip of hair. Don't know if we'll do that, but I like the notion of those who have 'invested' in him getting a lock too!
By way of perspective, ds#1 told us when he wanted his hair cut (about 5 yrs. old). He wear his red mop short these days!
I dress ds really boyish most of the time. And I ALWAYS get asked " how old is SHE?" and they are always telling me, "SHE is just so beautiful!" I try not to let it bug me and usually say, "oh, thanks we think HE is beautiful too!" They blame it on his hair. It is blonde and has these great curls!!! But like another poster said, we were at the beach and he had on swimming trunks I tell you, and a floppy Hanna hat and they made girl comments. He has beautiful blue eyes and long eyelashes too so it could be that!!I cant remember the last time someone said a boy comment to me!!LOL
But I refuse to cut his hair and dh is more adamant about it not being cut than me. And dh keeps his hair real short. But he has this Collector's Edition Longboarding Magazine ( surfing)that he bought about 5 years ago and that he still has and it has a 5 year old on the cover with a board and he has shoulder length blonde hair with some curl to it and dh says that its what Parker will look like. He's such a kook!!
I love my blonde, curl, long-haired boy!!!!!!!
