The Boy-child is growing his hair out. There are several boys in his class who have very long hair, flowing even. So, he's giving it a try. It's fairly long now and it hangs over his ears.
This is difficult for Dadam to accept. I have finally gotten him to stop frequently suggesting that the Boy-child should want his hair cut (we don't do that to the girls, why should we do it to him?), but he still cannot resist making the occasional slightly-teasing-remark.
At breakfast this morning, Dadam said, "I know why you're having so much trouble hearing us! Your hair is covering your ears!" As I was telling Adam to leave the Boy-child alone, PrincessE piped up and said, "Oh Dad, you're just bothered because you don't have very much."
Out of the mouths of babes.
