There's a boy under there

We took Zander to get a haircut last night. Besides our usual procrastination, we put these events off because taking Zander to get his haircut is a nightmare for all involved. But he's older now, and has new tools with which to cope. Like the Force. Although Zander was nervous and unhappy, he held still (like Yoda, like R2D2) and got his hair cut like a BIG BOY. We went for dinner at the coney next door and shared the promised big boy ice cream - a banana split (which later created an issue because apparently he felt cheated out of his ice cream CONE - who can anticipate these vagaries?).

I'd show you a before picture but apparently I don't have anything more recent than the picture from 7/24/08 which I posted last week. Oops. Well, imagine that picture but with the hair falling just past his eyes. And a little more poofy. Zander gets tennis ball head when his hair grows out, just like his dad. Who also got a haircut last night but was not available for a photo just now.

The after photo, taken this morning while Z watches Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, continuing his fascination with robots and scifi:
