Jaden has been begging me for a Mohawk for almost six months. I told him we weren’t going to do it during the school year because I didn’t want his teachers to think he was a hooligan. He didn’t forget and the last day of school, he came home asking when he could get his hair cut. I suppose he was pretty set on it.

I couldn’t go back on my word. So one day this week, after the babies woke up from their nap, we called Cost Cutters to see how long the wait was. There was NO wait! That was our cue to jump in the car and get the hair cut of Jaden’s dreams. I only had two rules … 1. There had to be some hair on his entire head. We were not going to Bic the sides! 2. If he started to act like a punk, we would need to go back to a regular hair cut because I like my boys nice and sweet.

The before

The after

He had THE biggest smile on his face … It was worth every penny of the $15.

That night at his tball game, he kept looking at himself in the reflection of his friends sunglasses. Gently touching the top of his head to make sure it was still spiked. Then the next morning we woke up and the first thing he said was “Mom, do I still have my Mohawk?” Again, gently touching the top of his head. When I explained that he did and would every morning he woke up because that’s how his hair was cut. He was even more excited! “Cool mom its permanent!”

Needless to say, I think the Mohawk fits him well … But then again I’m pretty sure I think my kid is pretty darn cute all of the time. Ok, I’m a little biased!

Love, Mel


  1. My son just got his head buzzed…….almost a Mohawk…….along with the rest of the baseball team by your brother! Didn’t turn out as cute as Jaden!

  2. So cute….love it.

    While I was reading this post, my 5 year old (the one I’ve told you before looks just like Jaden) came up to me and asked, “Is that me?” Ha ha…I had to laugh.

  3. My husband has been begging since my son was born to let me allow him to have a mohawk. I finally allowed it, and I LOVE it! Unfortunately my 3 year old has so much hair on the top of his head and such an awful cowlick it doesn’t look nearly as cute as Jadens!
