Just a Little Off the Top
Here’s Trey, my youngest son. He smiles. A lot.
He had an interesting day yesterday. It seemed like most every other day at first, but some time after school and before I got home from work, Trey saw this in our bathroom.
Ignoring all logic and despite the use of this object by his mother for any haircuts or hair trimming that is done at home, Trey decided he wasn’t exactly sure what would happen if he turned this on and ran it through his hair. Being an inquisitive young man, he determined that this specific time in his life was the best time to figure out what would happen under those circumstances, so this was Trey shortly thereafter.
Not as much smiling. He does, however, now know what will happen when he turns that thing on and runs it across his scalp. As for the timing; two days before school pictures, and at a school that doesn’t allow caps to be worn. So, here is our smiling Trey now that mom had to try to even things out a little. This is how he will be immortalized in his 2nd Grade class pictures.
The smile is back. As for Mom and Dad? Well, we had a difficult time controlling our laughter so we wouldn’t make him feel too bad. Seriously, what would we do for laughs without kids?
He is so cute, even without hair. But he does resemble a cancer patient.
Or a Marine. The few, the proud…
