Bald Heads.

Bald heads? How’d that get in there? Oh yes, I remember. Shawn’s spring haircut.

In my last post I had a picture of Shawn playing basketball with my nephew, Alex. When I first uploaded the picture, I noticed something weird about my husband, but I thought maybe it was the lighting. Then last night when he was standing in the kitchen, I noticed it again. The top of his head is going bald. In. A. Circle. In other words, if we don’t take action soon, he’ll be sporting the haircut on the far right here:

I knew this was inevitable, because, well…my father-in-law has that same hair style. When we were eating supper tonight, I broke the news to the girls, that Daddy was going to have the same haircut as Grandpa Tom. They didn’t take it well, their mouths actually dropped open.

Honestly, when I pointed it out to Shawn last night, he didn’t take it well either. It probably didn’t help that I asked him if he knew “how much time we had?” I guess we’re not going to wait around to find out. If you’ll excuse me now, I have a head to shave.

That's awesome! My dad looks like the last guy (bottom right). He is thinking about shaving it all... but my dad is 52 and not exactly "fit," so I'm not sure how the bald head will look on him...

Love the pictures!

It was warm here today too and I loved it!

I let Hayden play in his underwear, sandals, and a t-shirt... and he loved it!

Oh and your toes look awesome...

Have a grea morning/afternoon/evening!

Amazing pictures! And love that spring is here!!!

So funny about your husband. We have a good friend that keeps his head shaved so he does not have an odd balding pattern. He looks awesome bald!!!

Ha, I love your comment about "how much time do you think we have?" Literally LOL.

Just the other day I stopped mid sentence to tell DVD that he now has gray hair in the front of his head, not just the sides. He didn't believe be until he saw for himself...that didn't go well.

Lol...Big Man just noticed his hairline is starting to recede. He keeps telling he's going to get Rogaine because he wants a full head of hair for the wedding.. I secretly hope he's serious! :)

Haha too funny! Cute pictures! And I got to see Will Ferrell but not actually "meet" him! We were in the basketball stands!

Bare feet are so great after a long winter! I have had flip flops on the last couple days and I am loving it :)

Cara Smith said...

You just reminded me that I need a pedicure!

My husband was reviewing a security tape in a high rise and kept seeing this guy go buy with a big bald spot. He was making fun of him till the man faced the camera and he was looking at himself!

Everytime you post pictures of your girls I think "those are the cutest little girls ever". Love this post almost as much as I love the beautiful weather. Yay Spring!

Amy said...

"how much time we have"...Ha!!!
Freaking hysterical!!!

I have several guy friends who have this, um..problem. They ALL shave their heads and I dig it! Makes them look much younger than if they just held on to what little hair they had left.

Also? Examples of sexy men sporting the clean shaven look:
Bruce Willis, Daughtry, & Vin Diesel!!

Hope your girls aren't too traumatized:(

I love the second pic with your daughter holding her mouth open in such an excited expression!

It's good that your husband is shaving his head. That haircut in the picture only works on 70 year old men, and a lot of times it doesn't even work on them.

A bald head is so much better than a partial hair covering! You're doing the right thing!

I wore sanals and capris for the past 2 days and I am SO happy!!

Oh, sorry about the hair. I kind of wish tyler hadn't jumped the gun with shaving his head. But I do like it.

Sazzle said...

bahaha!! "how much time do we have?"!!! Love it!!!

Co Captain aka Mommy said...

You make me laugh!!!

Llama said...

Poor Shawn! My boyfriend always says that if he looses a certain amount hell just shave it off! ahhhhhh! when is that day?!

Sara said...

Heather said...

Heather said...
