Hair today, gone tomorrow!

We've created a monster! Boy says it's my fault for telling him how much fun I had in my marching band days, and what great friends you can make. His great new friends decided to shave his head in honor of Nationals competition, which happens this weekend in Indianapolis. So here you see the before (crazy hair after being pinned under his uniform hat) and after (hair all gone!).

Hmmm ... a vision of his follicle-challenged future? Seriously, I couldn't be prouder of Boy this fall. Not only has he gone all out in participating in marching band (at least 24 hours of rehearsal a week), he's done it while earning all As and A-s in his first quarter of high school. Hopefully someone will post a video of the show very soon, because it's amazing and I can't wait to link to it. Go PCMB!


  1. Is it weird to say something about his baldness makes him look like you?

  2. Well, I suppose since now you can actually see his eyes (which do look like mine), maybe not. I'd hope the better comparison would be to his grandfather, who hasn't had that much hair for as long as I can remember.

  3. Oh, Diane, low blow on the grandfather comment. I don't think they look that much alike even with the matching hair. Boy really does look like you.

  4. Hey, I didn't say bald wasn't beautiful ... but it's more likely than not that once Boy grows back his hair, he won't keep all of it for more than another 30 years or so. It's likely his genetic destiny.

    And yes, Boy does look like me, if you grafted TSH's nose onto my face.
