One too many "She's so beautiful"...(pic heavy)

regarding my almost 3 year old son....and I cut HIS hair In March, his hair was longer and I cut it - hoping this same thing (that he'd look more boyish to people who ignore his clothing)...didn't cut it nearly as short though. Now 3 months later it had grown out a decent amount and after getting comments everywhere we went for several days, I'd had enough.

He's been arguing with me that he's a girl and he's getting old enough to understand their comments - however well intentioned. I don't want him to get a complex, so I'm hoping that by giving him a traditional boy cut people won't confuse his gender. Here are a few pics..

March, pre-haircut

March, post-haircut - not styled, just woke from nap after sleeping on it wet/damp

June, pre-haircut


During (too funny to pass up)

June, post-haircut

he looks handsome in all the pics. I love them all. I would have cried having to be the mom and watching the hair fall on the floor. But it is cute in every style you chose. A+ mama

It was hard I didn't want to cut his hair either time. First time, dh insisted and then I thought it might help people see him as a boy. No such luck. Still makes me sad

ETA: Thank you btw

He's precious. He looks so grown up with his haircut.

i don't see how people could confuse him as a girl in the march-post pic he looks like total boy to me. Wow, but he defin. got his hair cut short in June.

Both look good mama.

And I don't dress him in gender neutral clothes, I don't see how people get his gender confused anyway!

too cute! Both ways! I get the "oh she is so pretty" with my middle son. Even a friend who hadn't seen him in a while thought he was a girl in a pic.

I loved it long, but he's a cutie no matter what. My son has shaggy hair that is getting pretty long...I get the "beautiful daughter" comments all the time, despite the fact that he wears trucks and boy colors all the time.
