Guys, do you know or remember when you got your first official haircut, not the infant / toddler trim?

Me, I was in first grade in a school where the girls and boys sat on different sides of the classroom. The teacher was so upset with my long curly hair, she felt it was not natural for a boy to have such long hair. She sat me in the girls section till I got a haircut. My mom against my father's wishes took me to another town to get a haircut. My dad was furious for weeks. The incident also was the beginning of many years of torment, fights, and detentions because of my hair. I kept it sort of long in protest but not as long as before. Yeah, I was a rebel at 6yrs.

Your teacher would hate my son. Lol! He has the most unusual red hair color. He/I get asked at least twice a day where can they get his hair color or "What number bottle is that beautiful color." Daddy put his hair slick back in a pony tail and had the sides and back shaved when he was 2. He has been wearing a pony tail and growing it out since. Your teacher would have gotten in so much trouble now a days! Things really have changed in schools.

I hate to see little boys "shorn" so soon, especially if they have wonderful curls like you did. :(

Since Gator said it’s walk your dog week, I will take my grand puppy for a walk after lunch.
