Okay, so this is my son. Yes, his hair is long. If you saw how hard he fights every time I cut his bangs, you would understand why I keep it long.





But I am so, so, so tired of everyone calling him a girl. I always dress him very boyish to try to prevent this, but sometimes I think I could write 'boy' on his forehead and people (especially women over the age of 60) would still call him a girl every time! Does anyone else have this problem?



Edit: okay, I'm not an idiot. I know my son has long hair. I know that long hair is traditionally worn on girls. The point I was trying to make in this post was that everyone always assumes he is a girl, even when he is dressed like a boy. I just think it's weirder to assume that I dress my daughter like a boy than that I have a son with long hair!

For all the people who asked, I put pictures of him when he was tiny on page 28 and 29

It's something that sort of comes along with having a boy with long hair. If it bugs you so much, cut his hair short.

My son used to hate getting his hair cut so we gave him the squirt bottle to play with while we do it. Its not a problem anymore

No my son has short hair. Most kids fight when you try to do their hair.

I think it would most definitely look worse if it was a million different lengths because he fought so hard during a hair cut. He gets so upset, I don't think it's worthwhile to traumatize him over hair...
