Bye Bye Baby Curl (tear, sniff)

While Vincent has spent the greater part of his 17 months bald, he's always had such a perfect little head. Since he was born with only peach fuzz, he never went through that awkward stage where it all falls out and then grows in only on top. He's just always had good hair days. Only adding to the cuteness was the little curl that developed in back. It reminded me of a duck tail. I loved to play with it, nuzzle my nose in it right after a bath when he smells perfectly sweet.

Well, the time had come. We had to get it cut. So off we went to the local barber shop where Anthony goes to get his coif cut. No frills, and they work fast! We were in and out within 10 minutes!

Oh, there it goes...
The old man clipping away in the neighboring chair handed me a little Whitman's chocolates box to collect the first snip. I found that quite adorable.

The gentleman in the next chair over provided a welcome distraction.

Yes, Vinny. It's all done.
Big boy hair now.

Back to School!

Vincent has been joining me in the classroom a lot this past month. This time of year is always exciting, but since Vinny came along, it's a little bittersweet. He's become so attached to me this summer, and its hard to leave him, even if but for a couple days a week. I am fortunate enough to job share again, and although I have a new teaching partner, Ana, and a new grade level to learn (we are teaching 3rd grade this year), I'm feeling ready to back. Ana's daughter took this picture on her camera phone, and even though it's a bit fuzzy, it made me realize that Vinny has many more years of helping mommy set up her classroom...I just can't wait till the day he can do all the heavy lifting and furniture moving! In the meantime, he keeps busy running up and down the halls and being treated like a prince by all the wonderful staff kids...those girls have just doted on him...and he's loved every minute of it!
