I have to start out by saying, I have always liked boys with long hair. All my boyfriends in high school had long (not super girly past the shoulders long) hair. Matt had long hair when we started dating as well. Until he went into the Air Force actually. I think long hair on guys can be really cute. And I think it's cute when little boys have long hair too. I LOVE Aiden's hair long. Yes, sometimes he gets mistaken for a girl and I've gotten much unwanted advice from strangers telling me that he needs a hair cut, but I don't care, I think he looks cute.
Aiden loves his long hair. If you tell him that it's time to get a hair cut, he starts crying. A wailing panicky cry and he holds on to his hair and shrieks, "I want to keep it long!" Well, at my in-laws Christmas party someone said something to Aiden about his hair and he said that he wanted to "keep it long like Mommy's." Ever since then Matt has been pestering me about getting Aiden's hair cut. He thinks that Aiden might start thinking that he's a girl. UGH! I completely disagree!
So here are some pictures. Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks it's OK for boys to have long hair!

So, to be completely honest, I don't really care for hair this long.
I really love Aiden's hair and don't want to get it cut! Trimmed? Sure, but not short! That being said, if Aiden told me tomorrow that he wanted to get his hair cut, I would be OK with it. I would have to hide my tears, but it would be OK.
