We have the same issue! Mitchell is 2 and has these gorgeous blonde locks. I was going to cut them a few months ago but the hairdresser could not fit him in. Since then I keep jumping between 'Should I?'/'Shouldn't I?'. It just seems such a sin to cut such lovely hair but also somedays when he has the bedhead or when he won't let me wash his hair then I say this weekend it all comes off!! I was going to sign him up for one of these talent search places and I know they would not want me to cut his hair, but have not gotten around to that yet.
Oh but those curls are just too cute! I know they can be a pain, Katy gets frightful tangles in hers, but we just generally "wash and go" and I am putting off the first cut for as long as possible! I know it's different for a boy, but he does look *so* like a boy that I don't think it matters! And soon enough you'll HAVE to cut it anyway, why rush?
It's for you to decide you are the mom. My son also had long hair and we also didnt want to cut it although a lot of people might have thought he look like a girl his personality show all boy. We started by cutting a little bit smaller everytime and know he likes his hair short although not to short.
